SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Organizers of the 2019 Sioux Falls Women’s March talked about postponing the event because of brutal winter weather - but moved it indoors instead.

The Argus Leader reports that hundreds of people gathered at the downtown Holiday Inn in Sioux Falls for the gathering, which included tables set up by groups like Planned Parenthood, Sioux Falls Pride and South Dakota Voices for Peace and Justice.

Attendees carried signs bearing slogans like “Angry Women Get Things Done” and “March. Vote. Win.”

Co-organizer Megan Forster says event planners were “lucky to have people show up” in subzero temperatures.

Ann Wilson, a Sioux Falls resident, says she was inspired to be there after attending the first national Women’s March in Washington D.C. in 2017.
