(RESTRICTED POOL) – Teresa Shook, the grandmother from Hawaii who launched the Women’s March on Washington, D.C., addressed the crowd on Saturday (January 21), saying her granddaughters were her source of inspiration for the march.

The march featuring speakers, celebrity appearances and a protest walk along the National Mall, is the brainchild of Shook and is intended as an outlet for women and their male supporters to vent their frustration and anxiety over Trump’s victory.

Large crowds of women, many wearing bright pink knit hats, poured into downtown Washington by bus, train and car on Saturday for the march in opposition to Trump just a day after the Republican took office.
