Global women's marches extend to second day

Protesters around the world are expected to attend a second day of marches on Sunday to voice support for female empowerment and political involvement.

Demonstrations are planned in Miami, Munich and Melbourne, Australia, The Associated Press reported. Another march in Las Vegas is centered on an effort to register 1 million voters.

Millions of people attended marches across the United States on Saturday, with huge crowds gathering in Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C., as well as in suburbs and in cities around the world, marking the anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration and last year's Women's March.

The demonstrations were generally framed as protests against Trump and his policies, with others focused on encouraging women to get more involved in politics in 2018.
