Join a Women's March in one of these Canadian cities on January 21

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to arrive in Washington for the Women's March on January 21, but events and rallies are planned for cities across Canada, too.

On the day after Donald Trump's inauguration, hundreds of thousands of people will unite for the Women's March on Washington to express their support for the rights of marginalized groups—and similar events are planned for cities around the world.

Though it's not officially an anti-Trump protest, the march was planned in reaction to the Republican candidate's presidential win. "The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights," the organizers say in their mission statement.

Hundreds of Canadian women will be making the trek to Washington, but there are also events planned across Canada. So if you can't make it all the way there, here's when and where you can join a march or rally closer to home:
