An organizer started the rally by saying she is a victim of sexual assault and shared her story.

She said the event was about channeling women's energy and "putting that power in the polls". The Italian actress, one of producer Harvey Weinstein's first accusers, said the Hollywood producer engaged in transgressions ranging from harassment to rape. She said the man tried to take her clothes off and put a crab apple in her mouth to silence her but she bit his hand and fled half-dressed to a nearby fraternity house, where students called police.

Last year's march in Los Angeles drew dozens of celebrities, including Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, Natalie Portman, Jamie Lee Curtis, Alfre Woodard and Demi Lovato.

Boyd says that while the march wasn't focused on one issue like the Women's March in Washington, D.C., the sentiment and the concerns are the same, "if not higher", she added.

An estimated 250 women's marches were expected to be held yesterday and today in major USA cities, including large-scale demonstrations in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Chicago. The marches were inspired by the Women's March in Washington DC that took place a year ago.

The Texas marches echoed similar sentiments expressed at rallies held across the country on the one-year anniversary of Trump's inauguration.

Numerous protesters wore pink knit "pussy hats", which were created for last year's march as a reference to a comment made by Trump about female genitalia.

Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon that it was a "perfect day for all Women to March".

Mr Trump's election campaign rival Hillary Clinton said the marches were "a testament to the power and resilience of women everywhere", and she wanted to see "that same power in the voting booth this year".

Trump's record with women has also been a problem even before he was President.

Oklahoma City protesters chanted "We need a leader, not a creepy tweeter!"

She paid tribute to women in the post, writing: "The most influential people in my life have always been women".

Thousands of protestors have taken to the streets across the United States for the second Women's March protesting Donald Trump - a repeat of the widespread protests which followed the president's election.

Activists want to register 1 million new voters and get more strong advocates for women's rights into office.

Trump acknowledged the marches Saturday afternoon but said they should be in celebration of the accomplishments of his presidency.

In Chicago, thousands of people gathered in Grant Park.

According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, the unemployment rate for women aged 20 and older has been falling steadily since 2012, years before Trump took office.

Hollie S. Chambers marched in Miami, carrying a sign that said, "A woman's place is in the revolution!" "Everything is moving toward the right, and we have a president who seems to have no decency". In Los Angeles, a Weekend of Women movement kicked off Saturday morning with 200,000 expected attendees. She spoke up about the criticism she received after revealing her own experiences of abuse.
