Ever since Donald Trump was officially elected President of the United States, people had been planning protest marches. The Women’s March on Washington took place all day yesterday, but they weren’t the only ones. During planning, the Women’s March on Washington grew into something no one could have predicted. There were marches being planned in every state in the U.S. as well as marches out of country and off-continent. Women’s Marches took place on every continent in the world yesterday. Yes, that includes Antarctica.

Many people marched yesterday, and there were a few familiar faces in the crowds. Several different Harry Potter actors took part in marches all over the world.

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) was seen marching alongside protestors in Washington, D.C. (500,00 in attendance).
