According to data still being collected by Erica Chenoweth at the University of Denver and Jeremy Pressman at the University of Connecticut, marches were held in more than 500 U.S. cities, attended by an estimated 3.3 to 4.6 million people. And roughly 200 of those cities have not yet released data on their marches. Even places like Stanley, Idaho (population 63), where nearly half the town – 30 people – came out to protest, including resident celebrity Carole King.
