Millions of people have blown expected attendance numbers for the anti-Trump Women’s March out of the water. Tallies are still being finalized, but here are some official estimates, per city, of some of the largest demonstrations around the world.


Washington D.C.

Estimated attendance for the central march is at 500,000.

Los Angeles

Organizers expected 80,000 people to attend. 750,000 people showed up, outnumbering even the flagship march in Washington D.C.


New York City

Estimated attendance: 250,000


Estimates for attendance range from 150,000-250,000. Organizers had originally expected 50,000, and had to hold a stationary rally because they could not fit the crowds through their planned route.



Estimated attendance: 100,000-150,000



Estimated attendance: 130,000



Estimated attendance: 135,000-150,000

St. Louis

Some of these numbers are subject to change, but the historically massive scale of this protest can not be denied. The protests in Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City alone totals over 2 million people. Over 670 marches took place worldwide, with thousands of people also taking part in demonstrations in Tokyo, Dublin, Capetown, Paris, Vienna, and Yangon, to name a few.
