Hundreds of women wearing red cloaks and white hats marched in Palm Beach while Women's Marches around the country continued on.

Several hundred people have gathered in Palm Beach, Florida, carrying anti-Trump signs as they prepare to march near the president's Mar-a-Lago home on Florida's east coast.

A group of women wearing red cloaks and white hats like the characters in the book and TV show The Handmaid's Tale marched in formation Saturday, their heads bowed.

Elsewhere around the U.S., people congregated in Houston; Richmond, Virginia; and Rhode Island. In Los Angeles, organizers are predicting thousands of people, including state officials and celebrities, will march to City Hall.

Millions of people rallied worldwide a year ago at marches for female empowerment. Many opposed President Donald Trump's views on issues including abortion, immigration and LGBT rights. Trump on Friday delivered new support to the anti-abortion movement he once opposed, speaking by video to thousands of activists at the annual March for Life.
