DENVER -- Thousands will march on the streets of Washington in the name of women`s rights on Saturday.

The women's march on Washington is expecting about 200,000 participants from across the US.

Several groups from Colorado will be leaving to go to the nation's capital in the next few days to be a part of the event.

"I always believed that women are equal. And that we can do anything a man can do," Kate Lemere said. "And I would like her to look back and go 'Isn't that funny. They felt like they had to go on a march to make sure people knew this.' I want her to be like it's a given."

Marches are also scheduled Saturday in cities across America, including Denver. A Facebook event page said marchers will gather at Civic Center Park at 9 a.m. and they will walk throughout downtown.
