The Women's March was first held in January 2017 on the day after Trump's inauguration as president. "Fight like a girl", said another.

Scores of women marched to pay tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, besides protesting against Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, urging women to vote in the upcoming election, CNN reported.

A socially distanced march was held at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, outside the dormitory where Bader Ginsburg lived as an undergraduate student.

Mr Trump has asked the Senate, controlled by his fellow Republicans, to confirm Ms Barrett before the election.

Barrett's approval would cement a conservative majority on the nine-member court, leaving only three liberals.

Today's gatherings are the second under the Women's March banner this year.

One speaker called for racial justice and an end to police brutality. "The Republican majority is responsible for racing forward with this extremely unqualified nominee, unqualified because of her extreme judicial philosophy, and that is who should be bearing the brunt at the ballot box in this election, that they are doing this to get someone on the court just in time a week after the election to take away critical health care protections from a majority of Americans". "We are fed up and we are voting Trump out of office", she continued.

"That is not his power, that is our power". "We are the hell and the high water".

Next month's presidential contest was also the focus of a separate NY protest Saturday in which hundreds of demonstrators protested the killings of Black people by police officers.
