Women stand in solidarity with one another as they march through the streets of Washington, D.C.

Last Saturday, we sent our photographers to document Columbia students and protesters at the Women's Marches on Washington, D.C. and New York. Over a hundred students attended the historic event, which drew nearly half a million people.
