This protest was the largest in U.S. history, according to politicususa.com, and over 6 hundred cities participated. University of Connecticut professor Jeremy Pressman and University of Dayton professor Erica Chenoweth are recording the total participants that marched in each city that participated.

The day following the marches, President Donald Trump tweeted, "Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views."
The protest is over, but the Women's March isn't over yet. They started a new campaign, 10 actions for the first 100 days, and the first action is to write a postcard to your senator explaining what is important to you, and how you will continue to fight for those rights.
