Demonstrators gathered along U.S. Highway 101 in solidarity with the nationwide Women's March in downtown Coos Bay. The demonstration drew about 85 people. The first Women's March was a worldwide protest on Jan. 21, 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Tensions rose due to his statements, considered by many as anti-women or otherwise offensive. It was the largest single-day protest in U.S. history.
