On Saturday, January 21st, the East End community turned out in full force to support a Women's March held in Sag Harbor. Hundreds of peaceful protestors, including Kim Cattrall and Bob Balaban, marched through the Village in solidarity of the Women's March on Washington.

"With less than a week of planning, a group of organizers managed to gather close to 500 participants for their 'sister' March in Sag Harbor," shared Hamptons.com Contributing Editor Lisa Tamburini, who attended the event. "Organized by Hope Marxe, Laura Eisman, and Ann Stewart, and promoted by word of mouth, and social media, including the Facebook Group 'East End Women (and others) for Change,' the response was overwhelming."

Those who were unable to attend the Women's March in Washington, D.C. were grateful they could show their support locally. "The marchers met at the Windmill at noon and proceeded to march on Main Street to the Civil War Monument and back to the Windmill. They rallied and listened to speakers and then paused for a moment of silence at 1 p.m. which coincided with Washington DC marchers led by Gloria Steinem," she shared. "Many of the marchers said they were unable to attend in Washington or New York City and were so happy to find an event closer to home. Among the marchers were actress Kim Cattrell and actor Bob Balaban."

The Hamptons Women's March was just one of the Sister Marches that spanned across all seven continents, and brought out over 5 million people.

"This coordinated day of global action surpassed all of our expectations," said Women's March on Washington co-founder and co-chair Bob Bland in a press release. "Together, we demonstrated the capacity of women working together in unity to create transformational change."

The March's mission is to "stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country."

The Women's March in Washington, D.C. brought out over 1 million attendees, including Madonna, Amy Schumer, America Ferrera, Ashley Judd, Alicia Keys, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Bella Thorne, Emma Watson,Debra Messing, Chrissy Teigen, Ali Wentworth, Katy Perry, and Gina Rodriguez, while a Sister March in Park City, Utah was attended by Charlize Theron, Mary McCormack, Chelsea Handler, Nick Offerman, and John Legend.

James Franco, Paul Wesley, Natalie Portman, Miley Cyrus, Idina Menzel and Kristin Davis supported a March in Los Angeles, California, and Helen Mirren, Cynthia Nixon, Melissa Rauch, and Christian Siriano were spotted at the New York City Sister March.

In the United Kingdom, Ian McKellen, Lin-Manual Miranda, Gillian Anderson, and John C. Reilly took to the streets for a March held in London.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to weigh in on the historical events. "Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote?" Trump pondered. "Celebs hurt cause badly," he added.

After an incredibly successful global event, the Women's March's next step is to launch a new campaign: 10 Actions for the first 100 Days, which will "transform this diverse, organic movement into a powerful force for equality and justice, with practical goals." 10 Actions for the first 100 Days will address ending gender-based violence, reproductive rights and women's health, LGBTQIA rights, worker's rights, civil rights, immigrant rights, religious freedom and environmental justice.
