Three days before the International Women's Day March is set to take place in downtown Los Angeles (and around the country), several hundred marchers rallied in front of City Hall on Sunday to stand up for Women's Rights.

According to KNBC, the light rain did not stop the nearly 1,000 protesters who showed up.

Sunday's marchers carried signs announcing "The Future Is Female" and "Not My President" among others.

Wednesday's International Women's Day Rally LA is expected to draw a crowd of several thousand. What's more, a general strike is called for on the same day to highlight the contributions of women to the workforce.

On Sunday, the marchers took a stand on issues beyond Women's Rights, including LBGTQ Rights and Immigrant Rights.
