The women’s protests: marching from afar

 

When hundreds of thousands marched for women’s rights Jan. 21 in cities throughout the United States, they were joined by protesters across the world. People marched in solidarity on every continent, including a 30-person protest in Antarctica.

This video uses LEGOs to show the international countries where the most protesters turned out. The data was taken from crowd estimates and compiled by researchers from the University of Denver and the University of Connecticut. Some places had two estimates, and for this video, an average of the two numbers was used.
