WASHINGTON — Hundreds of thousands of women’s rights activists flooded the streets of cities across the U.S. for the third annual Women’s March. In Washington, the marchers not only advocated for women’s rights but for an end to the partial government shutdown, which is nearly a month old.

On Friday, thousands of women also marched, but the cause was much different — an end to abortions.

The 2019 crowds on Saturday were smaller than in past years, possibly because of cold weather or reports of anti-semitism within the organization.
