The Women's March movement that started in the U.S. has become a global drive that supports women's rights, fights for an end to the gender pay gap and aims to bring awareness to violence against women and demand action to end it.

Protesters hold signs during the Women's Unity Rally at Foley Square in New York.

One procession, a march through midtown Manhattan, is being organized by the Women's March Alliance, a nonprofit group whose leaders are putting on the demonstration for the third straight year.

Another event downtown, the Manhattan Women's Unity Rally held at roughly the same time Saturday, was organized by the New York City chapter of Women's March Inc. The group formed to help organize the 2017 demonstration in Washington, D.C., but had a falling out with the alliance organizers.
