More than 2 million people took to the streets in Washington, D.C., and other cities on Jan. 21 to protest President Donald Trump's administration.
On Wednesday, International Women's Day, the organizers behind the January march are planning a showing of economic solidarity in walkouts, rallies and marches dubbed A Day Without a Woman.
No official explanation of why the statue went dark have been released by the U.S. National Park Service.
