WASHINGTON—One day into President Donald Trump's term, a new resistance emerged in the United States, and it's not just about gender equality and women's rights:

To be sure, the predominant theme at Women's Marches big and small across the nation and globe Saturday was that "this pussy bites back" and "love trumps hate." But a noticeable subset of marchers also called for strong climate science, a stand against environmental rollbacks, better environmental education, and a fix for environmental injustice.

Here's a sampling of that theme on display on the Mall Saturday in Washington, D.C.
