As per reports, more rallies are planned at other cities in the U.S. on Sunday.

Protestors held placards with messages including "fight like a girl", "a woman's place is in the White House" and "elect a clown, expect a circus".

The central organized 2018 Women's March event is a Power to the Polls demonstration in Las Vegas on Sunday, focused on mobilizing national voter registration for the upcoming midterm election, which could reshape USA politics.

Johansson said women have been "conditioned" to need approval from men and told the crowd: "For me, moving forward means time's up on the female condition".

The Women's March, which was first held on January 21, 2017, was a response to Trump's White House win.

Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets and landmarks in major cities across the United States, including its capital of Washington, DC, to rally against President Donald Trump and show support for women's rights, calling on citizens to get engaged on issues such as racial equality, sexual abuse, gun violence and immigrant protections. This was the anniversary follow up to the 2017 Women's March on Washington protesting the president's swearing in ceremony.

Bob Bland, a NY fashion designer who is now one of the organization's national co-chairs, joined the call to action with her own message: "Who wants to join me?!?" she asked. "I'm an immigrant. I wasn't born in this country".

Trump initially mocked the massive 2017 protests, but later said that "peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy".

Other national co-chairs include Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez, among others. "We're all coming together, and I think that is the most important thing here today", said Ibiron Keogunye, Women's March.

The strapline for Las Vegas is "Power to the Polls", created to drive national voter registration and maximize women's involvement in the 2018 midterm elections, in which a record number of women are standing for election.

Crowds are gathering in downtown Los Angeles for a Women's March against sexual violence and the policies of the Trump administration.

"In 2018, we must turn our work into action ahead of the midterms". "We will always support you, stand beside you, so you don't have to stand alone". Women were encouraged to vote, to run for office, and to combat sexual harassment and unequal treatment in the workplace. "Maybe they are trying to cast as wide a net as possible", Ms Dalmia said.

Some of the speakers of the event included Senator Catherine Cortez Masto and Cher. Hundreds of other anniversary marches and events will be held elsewhere in the nation - and around the world - on Saturday and Sunday.
