Thousands gather for Women's March across U.S.(11 images)

Thousands of demonstrators gathered in Washington, D.C., with more than 600 "sister marches" across the country on Saturday, for the Women's March. The demonstrations were focused on preserving the abortion rights following new restrictions in Texas and a Mississippi case facing the U.S. Supreme Court. Here are scenes from the marches in Washington and Los Angeles.
