Spurred by the #MeToo movement and in solidarity of other causes, women around the country took to the streets Saturday in protest on the anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration. We sent photographers to women's marches in Alabama, Indiana, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, and Utah — all states that Trump won in 2016 — to speak to women about what has mobilized them since the election. Many of the women said they gained a newfound sense of activism after the presidential race and are advocating for change in the 2018 midterms. To hear the women speak for themselves and to see additional viewpoints, check out our videos on Instagram.
