Authors Tweet Support for Women’s Marches Around the World

It’s safe to say that the women’s march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, January 21, was a huge success. The peaceful rally drew people from all over the world, with satellite marches popping up in cities across the globe (including Antartica!). The numbers are still rolling in, but some sites are reporting that there was an estimated three times the amount of people at the march than there were at Trump’s Inauguration the day before.

Many popular authors attended marches around the country, and they took to Twitter to talk about it:
