More than 100,000 demonstrators around the Bay Area and Sacramento joined over 1 million people in Women's Marches and protests across the United States on Saturday, rallying against President Donald J. Trump, particularly on issues of women's rights.

The marches paralleled the massive Women's March on Washington, which drew an estimated 500,000 protesters to the capital.

Bay Area protests began Friday morning following Trump's inauguration and lasted well into the evening. Take a look at some photos from protests in San Francisco, Oakland and Sacramento, just a few of many regional protests.

San Francisco

Tens of thousands gathered Saturday at Civic Center Plaza in San Francisco during the afternoon and then marched into the night through downtown in the wind and rain. On Friday morning after Trump's inauguration, thousands of protesters, many wearing purple rain slickers and pink pussyhats, formed a human chain across the Golden Gate Bridge in solidarity against the new administration.
