HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A year ago, thousands of women across the state took to the streets to voice their concerns about President Trump and his agenda.

On Saturday, the one year anniversary of women's marches nationwide, women (and some men) will gather again.

Marches are rally are set for several spots, from Honoluu to Hilo.

Last year's marches in Hawaii were intended to show solidarity with the massive Women's March on Washington, held one day after the inauguration of President Trump.

The events were born out of a simple Facebook post by retired Hawaii attorney Teresa Shook.

On Oahu on Saturday, the anniversary will be marked with a "people's rally" at the state Capitol, which begins at 10 a.m.
