Millions of people participated in Women’s Marches around the world Saturday morning, following the lead of the Women’s March on Washington that took place in Washington D.C.

Protesting the new American administration and the unequal treatment of women, women’s marches around the world promulgated the message that women’s rights are human rights.

Here in Montreal, the activist spirit was in full swing. An estimated 5,000 people converged on Place des Arts Saturday morning, carrying a variety of clever “Nasty Women” signs and wearing the now-iconic pink pussy hats.

Several prominent female activists, including Sue Montgomery of #BeenRapedNeverReported and Rachel Zellars of the Girls Action Foundation, gave keynote addresses to the enthusiastic crowd.

For those of you unable to attend, it was quite a day. Check out 29 images from the women’s march in Montreal.
