Hands Off!

Hundreds of thousands gather and march in Washington, DC, for the Women's March on Washington, a gathering that was the largest but still only one of a number of marches and protests around the country.  The actions followed by one day the inauguration of President Donald Trump, and many of the signs and comments were aimed directly at the new president -- especially his past comments on women, and even his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
