On January 21, more than 100,000 people are expected to march the streets of Washington, D.C. to rally for women's rights. Many attendees will be protesting president-elect Donald Trump, who will be sworn in the day before the march. Hundreds of other women's marches are expected to take place across the world at the same time—including one in Utah during the annual Sundance Film Festival, led by talkshow host Chelsea Handler.

"Sundance has always been a platform for change, not only for filmmakers and filmmaking but also for big ideas for the future," Handler said in a statement. "If there's anything I learned in the last year, it's that we need to be louder and stronger than ever about what we believe in, so I joined some incredible women from around the country to bring our voices together in the streets of Park City. The Women's March on Main will be an opportunity for the creative community and those in Utah to stand beside those in D.C."

The march will take place on Main Street in Park City on Saturday, January 21.
