An estimated 275,000 women, men and children took to the streets of the nation's capital in a sea of pink Saturday, in a massive march one day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. The Women's March on Washington brought together celebrities, politicians, and citizens, all with the common theme--  that their rights matter. NewsVision reporter Chelsea Boatwright was there.  Metro officials said there were 80,000 more subway riders to the area than there were for Trump's inauguration.
