Hawaii marchers add to worldwide protests for women’s rights

January 22, 2017

HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii protesters held marches for women’s rights that mirrored crowds gathered around the globe on President Donald Trump’s first full day in office.

The march on Oahu started Saturday morning at the capitol.

Honolulu protesters held signs with slogans including “Repeal and Replace Trump.”

Five sister marches were planned in Hawaii.

Official crowd estimates were unclear.

Protester Tina Bushnell told Hawaii News Now that she was out to protect the work accomplished by her mother’s generation.

More than 600 protests around the world joined Saturday’s women’s march on Washington.
