On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of women united in cities all over the world for the third annual Women's March, which aims to "harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change," according to organizers. 

In San Francisco, this year's march was co-hosted by Planned Parenthood Northern California. The event started with a rally at Civic Center Plaza, featuring speakers like Mayor London Breed, Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-Oakland), and author Rebecca Solnit. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) also walked in the march.

An estimated 60,000 people joined the subsequent march from Civic Center Plaza to the Embarcadero. According to the Mercury News, that's down from a turnout of about 80,000 last year and over 100,000 for the inaugural 2017 march, held the day after President Trump's inauguration. 

Here are some photos of protesters (and their best signs) as they participated in this year's San Francisco march.
