WASHINGTON D.C. — Once upon a time, you would have had to have been there to really get it, but this past Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington seemed to be everywhere. That was true both on social media and with the scores of sister marches happening around the county. Marches, that some students of history are estimating may be the single largest national protest in the history of the United States.

While Youth Radio reporters and alumni were at several of the marches documenting them on social media in as close to real-time as overloaded cell phone towers would allow, they were also capturing the moment with more than their smartphones. What follows is a collection from the main march in D.C.
