March of the 'nasty women': Hundreds of thousands of women demonstrate against Trump across the globe as Hillary's celebrity pals arrive in DC to lead protests there

'Nasty' is correct! Liberals usual home (when they're not protesting) is under the rim of a toilet.

Before Donald Trump's first full day as President of the United States even began, women across the world woke up early in preparation to protest against him.

Hundreds of thousands of women are marching everywhere from Washington DC to London, Berlin, Madrid, and Sydney in demonstrations against America's 45th president.

Massive numbers of American women in pink 'p***yhats' began posting photos of themselves headed to march on the capital in protest of the new president on Saturday morning.

The first batch of protesters were up bright and early in DC awaiting the Women's March on Washington to begin Saturday

More than 200,000 people are expected to take part in the march in the nation's capital on Saturday 

The march is expected to be largest inauguration-related protest in US history and comes the day after Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States

The pink knitted beanies with cat ears have become the unofficial accessory of the march, and were spotted everywhere from buses to trains and planes as women headed to Washington DC. 

One Southwest crew even lit up their plane cabin in pink on Friday night in honor of the protesters heading to DC, while others noted that some planes were 90 percent filled with women on their way to the demonstration.

Bags and bags of the p***yhats - a reference to Trump's infamous 'grab her by the p***y' quote from the 2005 Access Hollywood leak - were also being handed out to protesters in Washington DC on Saturday morning. 

More than 200,000 people are participating in the Women's March on Washington, which is expected to be the largest inauguration-related demonstration in US history.

Protesters chanted 'Thank you Obama!' before the rally kicked off at 10am with a rousing speech from actress America Ferrera.

‘The president is not America, his cabinet is not America,' Ferrera began. ‘We are America, and we are here to stay. We march for our families, for our neighbors, for our futures.’

‘We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our president is waging a war’

‘We are gathered here across the country and the world to say Mr Trump we refuse,' Ferrera continued. 

'We reject the demonization of our Muslim brothers and sisters, we demand an end to the system murder and incarceration of our black brothers and sisters, we will not give our rights to safe and legal abortions, we will not ask our LGBTQ families to go backwards, we will not go from being a nation of immigrants to a nation of ignorance.’

'We won’t build walls and we won't see the worst in each other and we won’t turn our backs on the more than 750,000 young immigrants in this country.' 

'Together we, all of us, will fight, resist and oppose every action that threatens the lives and dignity of any and all of our communities.' 

'Marchers, make no mistake. We are, every single one of us, on attack. Our safety and freedom are on the chopping block and we are the only ones who can protect one another.'

'If we do not fight together…we will lose together.'

Protesters of all ages were spotted gearing up for the protest, including this adorable girl in Washington, DC 

Protesters could also be seen gathering for the Women's March on Philadelphia, one of the 600 sister marches 

Three times more bus parking permits were requested for the Women's March than Trump's own inauguration.

One person traveling to attend the march revealed Saturday morning that all the rest stops had been packed with buses heading to DC. 

'Our driver said he's never seen anything like this before,' they added. 

Lines to buy metro tickets in DC stretched past blocks as protesters flooded the stations and trains as they made their way to the march. 

The sheer popularity of the marches was evident throughout the country's office supplies stores as people scrambled to buy materials to make protest signs. 

Stores from New York to Maryland to Colorado had sold out of poster board, with numerous protesters sharing photos on social media of empty shelves. 

One shop worker at a DC Office Max said protesters for the Women's March 'bought up everything'.

The march's organizers said more than 600 sister marches have also been planned, stretching as far and wide as London, Sydney, Auckland, Berlin, and Cape Town in South Africa.

There are more than two million registered marchers, according to the official Women's March website. 

Despite its massive popularity, the march has angered some of Hillary Clinton's most ardent supporters. 

On Thursday the organizers of the Women's March on Washington released a list that included 27 names of revolutionary women they wrote had 'paved the way' for Saturday's protests. 

The list included the likes of Gloria Steinem, Angela Davis, Harriet Tubman and Malala Yousafzai, but Clinton - the first female presidential candidate for a major political party - was notably left off the list. 

Clinton's supporters created a petition - which has been signed by 7,500 people - to have her name included on the list and tried to spearhead their movement on Twitter with the hashtag #AddHerName. 

The former Secretary of State has no plans to attend the march herself.

And while Trump struggled to rally celebrity support for the inauguration, his new neighborhood will be flooded with stars ready to protest against him. 

Actresses Ashley Judd, America Ferrera and Scarlett Johansson are among the speakers at the event, which will also be attended by Cher, Katy Perry, and Amy Schumer. 

Ferrera, who is charing a group called the 'Artist's Table' for the event, said Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde, Debra Messing, Uzo Aduba have also planned to take part in rallies across the country.

Comedian Chelsea Handler will lead a march in Park City, Utah, where the Sundance Festival is currently taking place. 

'As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities,' she said in a statement. 

The movement has inspired the globe, and marches will also be taking place in London, Sydney, Auckland, Berlin, Brussels and Madrid (pictured), among others

Among the performers for the event will be R&B singers Janelle Monae and Maxwell, as well as DJ Samantha Ronson, Angelique Kidjo and the Indigo Girls, among others. 

'I am honored to join this critical movement to bring justice and equality to all,' Monae said in a statement. 

'Music has always been a powerful tool for galvanizing unity and I believe that singing and standing together, our voices will be stronger than any force that tries to repress us.'
