Thousands attend Women's March on London protest against Trump

"Pussy grabs back" was the message millions of demonstrators had for newly-inaugurated President Donald Trump during Women's Marches around the world.

Feminist marches took place in locations as far-flung as Antarctica on Saturday, with protesters declaring "girls just want to have fun-damental rights"

Mr Trump divisive campaign rhetoric, an attack on Fox News host Megyn Kelly and a recording of him boasting of famous men being able to grab women "by the pussy" all fed into the protests.

In some 700 marches around the world many people took the chance to display wit as well as outrage.

One woman's sign read, "We shall overcomb," while in Bangkok a poster said, "Our rights aren't up for grabs and neither are we". "Resistance is fertile," proclaimed a banner on show in Kolkata, India.

One young woman in Macau got Biblical with a sign that said, "I didn't come from your rib—you came from my vagina". The slogan "I love naps but I'm still woke" was also spotted.
