Protesters march along Congress Avenue on January 20, 2018 to mark the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Women's Marches are taking place across the country on the anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration. Last year, tens of thousands of protesters packed streets in many cities — including in Austin, where an estimated 50,000 people crowded along Congress Avenue and on the Capitol grounds. 

This morning, a much smaller group of protesters gathered at Austin City Hall in preparation for a march to the Texas Capitol.
