SAN DIEGO - Thousands of people descended onto downtown San Diego for a march supporting women's rights.
San Diego Women's March mirrored a larger march happening in Washington D.C. and other "sister" marches around the country. Thousands have gathered to support reproductive rights and equal pay, and also protest the election of President Donald Trump.
San Diego's march kicked off at 10 a.m. at the Civic Center complex located at 202 C St., and continued along Broadway and North Harbor Drive to the County Administration Center. As of 12 p.m., many are still downtown marching.
Organizers of SDWM said they march in solidarity with the march taking place in Washington D.C. and "stand united in our respect for all people."
"As a diverse, inclusive community of compassionate people, we seek to strengthen and continue our commitment to work for the protection of women's rights," organizers of the march said in a statement. "We stand firm in agreement that women's rights are human rights."
The marches come one day after President Donald Trump was sworn into office as the nation's 45th president.
Washington's march has continued to run throughout Saturday, as crowds grew into the hundreds of thousands.
