VIEQUES, PR - Hundreds of residents and visitors to this small island off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico gathered on January 21 in solidarity with millions around the globe, to rally for equality for women.

While many gathered showed their dislike for the incoming president with their chants and placards, the theme was one of unity and action for women on the island, calling for job equality, access to quality education and protection from sexual violence.
