PLEASANTVILLE -

Dozens of women's marches took place across the country Saturday, including the second annual march in Pleasantville.

The march in Pleasantville began at the Memorial Plaza Gazebo.

It was held amid the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, which have helped shine a light on sexual misconduct and harassment in the entertainment world and in other U.S. workplaces.

The movement has grown enormously since last year, when marches took place in Washington, D.C., New York City and Los Angeles.

Members of the group Indivisible Pleasantville organized the rally and say the local level is where these movements begin.

"Give people the opportunity who might not be able to get their kids all the way into New York City and the weather and the train and everything else and show our support for the national Women's March," says co-founder Margaret Ables.
