Thousands turned up at marches across the nation for what's being called the largest inauguration related demonstration in U.S. history.     
     The Women's March was inspired by Maui Resident Teresa Shook who said she felt disappointed the day after Donald Trump was elected.
      In Hawaii alone, planned marches were organized in three counties.
     On O'ahu, about 8,000 people rallied together at the Hawaii State Capitol.
      Participants gathered to stand up for their beliefs--anything from the right to choose to health care.
     Most were determined to send a clear message to President Trump and his administration.
     "Women and every other minority will not sit quietly behind and allow him to trample on our rights," said Michael Golojuch, Jr

     Rain and strong winds didn't shy away participants.

     Allyn Tabata crafted dozens of hats for the march. She told KITV her creations are more than just an accessory.

     "It's all about women's rights and equality and just saying we're not going away, we're here. See us and hear us," Tabata said.

     Landmark sites through Honolulu became backdrops to the throngs of people lining the sidewalks. Some couldn't believe how many turned up.
     "Hawaii is a beautiful place but sometimes people aren't vocal enough and so it's really nice to see that, grassroots politics really does work," Emily Uribe said.

     The peaceful gathering came to a close with a unified rally.
