Thousands of women march in Augusta

Central Maine - Thousands of people converged Saturday behind the Maine State House for causes as big as civil rights and as individual as wanting to be heard. The Women’s March on Maine, one of hundreds of events related to the Women’s March on Washington a day after the inauguration Friday of President Donald Trump, drew people from varied backgrounds from across the state for two hours to hear a slate of speakers, chant, show support and bang on drums.
