[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana]  Thousands took the streets across the United States for women's marches on Saturday (Oct 17), many wearing pink protest hats while issuing fervent calls against President Donald Trump and his conservative Supreme Court pick.

The rallies ahead of the Nov 3 election were inspired by the first Women's March in Washington, a huge anti-Trump rally held a day after his 2017 inauguration. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demonstrations on Saturday were considerably smaller, though protesters still turned out in cities across the country, according to organizers. About 100,000 people took part in about 430 march locations from New York to Los Angeles and Chicago to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, organizers said.


They urged people worried about in-person participation to join in a "socially distant text-banking telethon" for sending 5 million messages encouraging people to vote. Marchers also paid tribute to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg - an icon for women and progressives - while protesting Trump's choice of conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace her. Most marchers in Washington wore face masks to stem the spread of COVID-19, with some dressed as Ginsburg in black robes with white lace collars, and many wore the knitted pink hats made famous by the original march.
