Peaceful protest

They came from all over -- California, Illinois, South Carolina, Texas -- but with a single purpose, to demonstrate their support for women's rights in the first D.C. protest of the new Donald Trump era. Hundreds of thousands crowded on to Pennsylvania Avenue not far from the U.S. Capitol for a rally. So many people came that there couldn't be a march; they filled the march route. But the rally offered a catharsis for the many who worry that a Trump administration will roll back important gains for women.

Women's March turnout overwhelming

Sign chatter

Day of rage

Perhaps as many as 500 protesters stormed through downtown Washington Friday afternoon shortly after Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th U.S. president. The protesters smashed plate glass windows of some businesses, set a stretch limousine on fire and skirmished with riot-garbed police, who fired tear gas and blocked streets to try to control them. Richard Spencer, a white supremacist made famous for shouting Heil, Trump at a gathering after the election, was punched in the face. There were no serious injuries, but more than 90 people were arrested.
