Architects and designers join millions marching for women's rights after Trump inauguration

Yves Behar, Gareth Pugh and Assemble were among the millions of people who took part in the worldwide marches for women's rights over the weekend, spurred on by the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.

Marches took place in cities all over America, from Washington DC and New York to Miami and Chicago. But they were also staged in major cities in dozens of other countries, including Japan, the UK, Sweden, South Korea and Canada.

Protestors were standing up for women's rights, as well as other causes including immigration reform and racism. These are all issues they claim will be put at risk under a Trump administration.

Here's a look at some of the images posted by architects and designers who attended the rallies.

Misha Kahn

Misha Kahn stated earlier this year that "apocalyptic times call for extreme furniture" in relation to the current political climate. The New York designer went along to the main march in Washington, where he saw an interesting poster that seemed to allude to Trump's year-round tan.
