Trump Election Protests - Why, Exactly?

Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets yesterday in protest of the election of Donald Trump as our 54th president.  What exactly they were looking to achieve remains completely unclear.

It appeared to be loosely based around women's rights, but there was a lot more going on than just that.  For the most part, women demanded that they be heard and that they are recognized, but for the life of me I can't understand why they felt marginalized simply due to an election that did not go their way. 

It is looking a lot like whenever there is a Republican president, folks feel the need to protest.  It's also looking like we're going to be seeing a lot more of this in our future.

I just wish I knew what they hell they wanted, other than an election do-over, of course.
