Saturday, January 21, 2017 3:41 PM

Pop singer Madonna was among a number of A-list celebrities who spoke at the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday. She said “no opposing force stands a chance in the face of true solidarity.”

Madonna said, “Good did not win this election. But good will win in the end.”

Turnout was so big that the original march route alongside the National Mall was packed, and instead of trekking en masse to the Ellipse by the White House as planned, the protesters were told to make their way there on their own by way of other streets.

The event appeared to have attracted more people than Trump’s inauguration on Friday, based on figures from transportation officials.
