Record number of women to march the day after Mr Trump becomes Mr President

On Saturday — a day after Donald Trump becomes the President of the United States - the Women’s March on Washington will take place.

John Maytham interviewed EWN’s Nadia Neophytou.

Neophytou is at the Sundance Film Festival where a large contingent women (including many famous ones) will be marching in solidarity with the D.C. Women's March.

Trump will likely be a huge topic of discussion there.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

When Barack Obama was inaugurated for the first time 1.8 million people showed up. The Department of Homeland Security expects 800 000 for Donald Trump.
