Hundreds of people marched down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. Wednesday in honor of International Women's Day.
Some American women chose to stay home from work, zip up their wallets, wear red and join rallies across the country to demonstrate their economic clout Wednesday as part of a multitude of International Women's Day events around the globe.
Turnout for events in many cities was far smaller than the throngs that turned out across the country for the Women's March on Jan. 21.
On Wednesday, a few hundred people, the vast majority of them women, gathered in front of the White House.
Women dressed in red and waved hand-made signs, chanting messages such as "Donald Trump has got to go".
The Day Without a Woman protest in the U.S. was put together by organizers of the vast women's marches that were held coast-to-coast the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration.
Organizers said the action was inspired by the Day Without an Immigrant protest held last month.
The event coincides with the U.N.-designated International Women's Day.
