Protesters across globe rally for women's rights

I looked out, the field was, it looked like a million, million and a half people.

But Trump's stated attitudes toward women and his comments about judging women by their weight and appearance kept coming up, as did his now infamous remarks about grabbing women by their genitalia.');$vidEndSlate.removeClass('video__end-slate--inactive').addClass('video__end-slate--active');;CNN.autoPlayVideoExist = (CNN.autoPlayVideoExist === true) ? true : false;var configObj = thumb: 'none',video: 'politics/2017/01/18/womens-march-on-washington-organizers.cnn',width: '100%',height: '100%',section: 'international',profile: 'expansion',network: 'cnn',markupId: 'body-text_63',adsection: 'const-article-inpage',frameWidth: '100%',frameHeight: '100%',posterImageOverride: "mini":"height":124,"width":220,"type":"jpg","uri":"// dam/assets/170118123133-womens-march-on-washington-digital-short-small-169.jpg","xsmall":"height":173,"width":307,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","small":"height":259,"width":460,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","medium":"height":438,"width":780,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","large":"height":619,"width":1100,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","full16x9":"height":900,"width":1600,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","mini1x1":"height":120,"width":120,"type":"jpg","uri":"// rch-on-washington-digital-short-small-11.jpg",autoStartVideo = false,callbackObj,containerEl,currentVideoCollection = [],currentVideoCollectionId = '',isLivePlayer = false,moveToNextTimeout,mutePlayerEnabled = false,nextVideoId = '',nextVideoUrl = '',turnOnFlashMessaging = false,videoPinner,videoEndSlateImpl;if (CNN.autoPlayVideoExist === false) autoStartVideo = false;if (autoStartVideo === true) if (turnOnFlashMessaging === true) autoStartVideo = false;containerEl = jQuery(document.getElementById(configObj.markupId));CNN.VideoPlayer.showFlashSlate(containerEl); else CNN.autoPlayVideoExist = true;configObj.autostart = autoStartVideo;CNN.VideoPlayer.setPlayerProperties(configObj.markupId, autoStartVideo, isLivePlayer, mutePlayerEnabled);CNN.VideoPlayer.setFirstVideoInCollection(currentVideoCollection, configObj.markupId);videoEndSlateImpl = new CNN.VideoEndSlate('body-text_63');/*** Finds the next video ID and URL in the current collection, if available.* @param currentVideoId The v ideo that is currently playing* @param containerId The parent container Id of the video element*/function findNextVideo(currentVideoId) var i,vidObj;if (currentVideoId && jQuery.isArray(currentVideoCollection) && currentVideoCollection.length > 0) for (i = 0; i 0) videoEndSlateImpl.showEndSlateForContainer();callbackObj = onPlayerReady: function (containerId) CNN.VideoPlayer.reportLoadTime(containerId);CNN.VideoPlayer.handleInitialExpandableVideoState(containerId);CNN.VideoPlayer.handleAdOnCVPVisibilityChange(containerId, CNN.pageVis.isDocumentVisible());if (Modernizr && !

"Sister marches" happened outside the United States, too. The numbers are lower than what the system saw in 2009 and 2013 during Obama's inaugurations: 1.1 million trips in 2009 and 782,000 in 2013.

In Athens, Greece, protesters included refugees from Elliniko Camp, located in the old Athens airport .

There was even a protest in Antarctica -- about 30 eco-minded tourists and non-government scientists aboard a ship in international waters hoisted signs saying "Penguins for peace" and "Seals for science," organizers said.

Bigger than inaugural?.

'Strength in numbers'

"Now, that's not bad," Trump said. The metro tweeted Saturday there were 275,000 trips taken Saturday by 11 a.m. And they said, Donald Trump did not draw well," the President said.

The protesters, which included many men, hit the streets for different reasons, among them health care, the future of the Affordable Care Act, the environment and income equality. Trump, in his first speech after the Inauguration, said the media under-counted the size of the crowd for his Friday swearing-in ceremony.

"I get up this morning, I turn on one of the networks, and they show an empty field. I'm like, wait a minute. "But it's a lie," adding that the inauguration drew significantly more th an 250,000 people.

Later Saturday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called his first press briefing and questioned the media's reporting on crowd sizes, saying the Trump inauguration was "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period."

But Metro confirms numbers first reported in the Washington Post showing that 570,557 riders took trips between the subway system's opening at 4 a.m.

By comparison, on Friday, there were 193,000 trips by 11 a.m., according to Metro.

Not everyone agrees.

The march organizers believe more people came out Saturday for the protests than for Trump's inaugural events on Friday.

People gathered to demonstrate in most major cities around the world, including London; Tel Aviv; Melbourne, Australia; Pristina, Kosovo; Moscow; Berlin and Mexico City -- often in front of US embassies.

Trump said the unnamed network reported he drew 250,000 people. They showed a field where there were practic ally nobody standing there.

More than 470,000 people had taken the Metro, the Washington subway system, by 1 p.m., a weekend ridership record. I made a speech. Friday through its closing at midnight.

Washington protest organizers, who originally sought a permit for a gathering of 200,000, said Saturday that as many as a half million people participated, dwarfing Friday's inaugural crowd
