Organizers are predicting 200,000 will participate in the Women's March on Washington the day after Donald Trump is inaugurated as president.

The National Park Service's list of First Amendment applications lists a permit for that size of a crowd on Jan. 21.

The group applied for the permit under the name "The Gathering for Justice." The application says the purpose is "to come together in solidarity to express to the new administration & congress that women's rights are human rights and our power cannot be ignored."

The next morning, 10,000 responded they would attend. Now 100,000 say they will participate in the march, which is set to begin at 10 a.m. at the Lincoln Memorial and end at the White House at 5 p.m.
