Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators have descended on the nation's capital today for the Women's March on Washington, an intersectional gathering determined "to send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world, that women's rights are human rights."
NewNowNext's Kristina Marusic is on the ground in D.C., and will be reporting throughout the day. We'll also be sharing stories and photos from sister marches around the globe.

Kaity Waddell, who identifies as a lesbian, came to the march all the way from Ohio. At 19, she voted for Hillary Clinton in her first election in November, and says she's at the march to "stand up for LGBT rights."
Saddam Hossain of Virginia came to the march with his girlfriend, Chelsea. "I'm here to support women and also because I'm Muslim," he told us. "As you can see by my name, I may soon have to be on a registry."
Couple Rebecca Leung and Gaby Waldman-Fried came to the march from Boston. "I'm just really angry things like gay and trans rights are now so uncertain," said Gaby.
Added Rebecca, "The real work starts when we get home. With building relationships."
"I hope we can show trump that what he wants is not what this country needs," says Chris Burton, a queer Jamaican woman who lives in the DC area.
Elizabeth Bryant of Massachusetts and Melissa Eisenman of New Hampshire are at the march to "support reproductive rights and protest the repeal of the ACA."
This is Stevie Garfinkle from L.A. His nickname is Unity the Unicorn—unicorns were on his and his husband's save-the-date announcements when they got married.
Like others, he told us he came to DC "to support the women in his life" and to march for his mom, who was not well enough to march. (He also said "Hi mom!")
