The most powerful scenes from the 2018 Women's March

Marking one year since the historic first Women's March; women, men and children gathered in thousands across the world to support the women's movement in a protest for equality.

Following the momentum of last year's ground-breaking Women's March and in the wake of the empowering Golden Globe's black carpet, women, men and children around the world gathered on the weekend to rally again for women's rights.

From Sydney's Hyde Park, to Paris' Eiffle tower, to the gates of the White House, protesters called for equal rights and an end to discrimination. Influential Hollywood actors took to the microphone in their home cities to deliver powerful speeches. Scarlett Johansson pointedly called out fellow actor James Franco in a cutting speech to thousands, in which she demanded he 'give my pin back' (watch the video above).

And for those who could not attend a march, social media provided an outlet to share positive images and words of support.

Here, we celebrate some of the most moving, empowering and inspiring images from the weekend's worldwide Women's March.
