The Women’s March on Washington on Saturday is set to be huge, drawing more charter bus permit applications than the actual Inauguration Day — of President Donald Trump — it’s protesting and more than 220,000 committing to going on Facebook.
In fact, the protests look to be so big that currently airplanes full of women are flying to Washington, DC, to join the demonstrations.
Estimates are that the number of anti-Trump protesters today are going to far outnumber the people who showed up for yesterday's inauguration.
Speaking of yesterday's inauguration, get a load of this:
By the way these "Sister Marches," as they have been named , are already underway here in America and in other places like Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Up here in Alaska we have several of these planned all OVER the state, with the one in Anchorage starting around 10"30 AM our time.Big cheers on 7th street at the enormous crowd gets its first look down the hill at the even bigger crowd in the mall. #WomensMarch pic.twitter.com/aXGZRlOL7s— James West (@jameswest2010) January 21, 2017
In fact I worked all of yesterday to find a way to attend the Anchorage march myself, but work responsibilities are unfortunately going to keep me close to home.
However I will continue to cover today's protests and to spread the word for this and other protests to come.
Remember, they might be able to stifle the Interior Department, but they can't shut us all up.
And they have only just begun to hear our voices raised in protest.
P.S. By the way, men are perfectly welcome to these "Sister Marches" as well, as the great Nick Offerman explains quite eloquently to jerkwad extreme Piers Morgan.
I have not yet seen reliable estimates on the inauguration crowd size but I would not at all be surprised if this march had already exceeded it.Per @womensmarch organizers, they're increasing today's turnout estimates to 500,000 participants. Be patient & kind! #WomensMarch— Deputy Mayor Donahue (@SafeDC) January 21, 2017
And that does not even count the marches happening around the world.

Update 3: Women's March in Anchorage.
But what can I say? You just can't keep strong women down, now can you?
