The New York Times has photographs of women's marches in Washington, New York City, and other cities around the country, in major cities of Europe, and on every continent in the world, in response to Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday. Hudson may be the smallest city to have had a women's march, but the turnout was truly impressive. Carrying signs and periodically chanting "Forward together, not one step back," marchers--women, men, children, and dogs--made their way from Seventh Street Park to the waterfront. There is not official estimate of the number of marchers, but they filled the north side of Warren Street, and when head of the column had reached Third Street, the line of marchers still stretched all the way back to Seventh Street. Below Third, the marchers spread out to fill the entire street. Pictures of our march may not make it into the New York Times, but here are a few that Gossips took.
