The March for Women’s Lives drew the largest crowd the women’s movement has ever seen. Organizers said 1.15 million people -- from across the United States and 57 countries -- packed Washington DC’s National Mall. The diverse group, including Catholics for Choice and Republicans for Choice, came together in solidarity to challenge the Bush administration’s assault on women’s rights.
