Turnout for the third Women’s March was — despite a deepening controversy — on par with the 2018 installment of the now annual march, during which about 10,000 gathered at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. Women’s March 2019 featured a short walk down Pennsylvania Avenue and a loop back to Freedom Plaza down E Street before a rally. (WTOP/Alejandro Alvarez)

The original Women’s March in 2017 was organized by liberal activists as a rebuke of President Trump’s election, and a show of unity for women’s rights and issues. Three years later, the Women’s March has fractured into rival factions amid a row over under-representation of minority groups and accusations of anti-Semitism. (WTOP/Alejandro Alvarez)

The third Women’s March is the group’s first in the aftermath of a major election. The Jan. 19 came only two months after the Democratic Party retook the House, the end of a dramatic midterm race that resulted in several candidates endorsed by the Women’s March being elected to office.
