The Black Women’s March was one of hundreds of protests across the nation this year.

This country hasn’t seen such high rally turnouts since the anti-war protests of the 70s.

"Being able to do this and to have my voice be heard is something that I hope to do more," said protester Valeria Mondesir, of Rockland County.
