The Women's March returned for a second year Saturday and Sunday as hundreds of thousands of women rallied in cities across the country and at sister marches abroad. The march in Washington proceeded despite the government shutdown, which many demonstrators referenced as part of their critique of the Trump administration. Immigration policy, the #MeToo movement, health care, and the 2018 midterms were of central concern to protesters, who encouraged each other to vote against President Trump's GOP this year. Trump responded on Twitter Saturday, commenting that the weather was nice for women to celebrate his many accomplishments, particularly in the economic realm.
