WASHINGTON, DC -- For the third straight year, women will march on Washington as part of a worldwide demonstration for women's rights.

This year's rally will be held at Freedom Plaza, located at 1455 Pennsylvania Avenue NW just a block from the White House.

"The 2017 Women’s March inspired hundreds of women to run, millions more to vote, and dozens to win elected office," their website states. "The 2019 Women’s March marks two years of resistance to the Trump presidency, two years of training new activists, and two years of building power. And this time, we're coming back with an agenda."

The march will kick off at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 13th Street NW. Public gathering starts at 10 a.m. with the march stepping off at 11 a.m. and the rally beginning at 1 p.m. It is scheduled to wrap up at 4 p.m.

There will be many sister marches around the country, many of which may outnumber the D.C. version. For more information, visit the Women's March map here.

If you're looking to head into the city for the event, your best bet would be take Metro to either the Federal Triangle or Metro Center stations.

The 2017 Women's March, which took place the day after President Trump's inauguration, drew an estimated 500,000 to 1 million people to D.C. The 2018 march drew thousands, but nowhere near the 2017 figure.

With the Democratic National Committee ending its partnership with the event over concerns about anti-Semitic views held by organizers, this year's march is not expected to produce a massive crowd. In fact, D.C. police have not even announced road closures for the event, but they have for the annual "March for Life" that will take place the day before.
