Demonstrations were held in San Francisco, Oakland, elsewhere in the Bay Area, and around the country on Saturday to demand equity and respect for women's rights. It was a great example of streets and other public spaces being used for discourse, protest, and demands for justice.

Filmmaker Gary Yost produced this 14-minute short doc, embedded below, about the Women's March in San Francisco to give people a direct experience of what it was like to be there.

The doc was shot with a 360-degree camera, to give an immersive experience. "The best way to view it," explained Yost, is with a Google cardboard-style virtual reality headset " that you can be directly inside the scene as a participant." However, it can also be viewed in a browser. Yost suggests Google Chrome for the best results.
