Hillary Clinton said Saturday women's marches around the United States and the world were "a testament to the power and resilience of women everywhere."

The Democratic former U.S. first lady tweeted she wants to see "that same power in the voting booth this year." She said the Women's March "was a beacon of hope and defiance" last year, when Republican Donald Trump was inaugurated after beating her in the presidential election.

Demonstrators from Los Angeles to New York marched in support of female empowerment and denounced Trump's views on women's rights and other issues Saturday, the anniversary of his inauguration. Eva Longoria and Natalie Portman were among the celebrities who addressed demonstrators in Los Angeles.

Trump tweeted Saturday was a "perfect day" for women to march to celebrate the "economic success and wealth creation" that's happened during his first year in office.
