They will not stay silent.

Several Women's March demonstrators in New York City who were protesting near Trump Tower have been arrested.

The NYPD confirmed that 13 people were arrested on Wednesday afternoon, shortly after protesters made their way to the hotel.

According to reports, about 1,000 people — many who were women dressed in red — congregated on Fifth Avenue outside Donald Trump's Manhattan residence to demonstrate International Women's Day.

The protesters had planned on forming a wall around the hotel, but were arrested shortly after gathering in Columbus Circle. Many of the effort's national organizers were among those arrested.

She won't stand for bullshit.

New York City has been going through some monumental changes in the past 24 hours — and unlike the Statue of Liberty going dark last night, this change to Wall Street was no accident.

State Street Global Advisors, the world's third-largest asset manager and nearly $2.5 trillion investor, installed a bronze statue of a defiant girl in front of the iconic Wall Street bull on Tuesday morning.

The statue was installed to celebrate International Women's Day on Wednesday, and is part of the money manager's campaign to pressure companies to add more women to their boards.

State Street said it would vote against boards of companies that fail to take steps to increase its female board members, and plans on sending letters to 3,500 asking companies to act.

National Park Service officials are looking into the "unplanned" outage, and suspect it is likely related to "an ongoing project to activate a new emergency backup generator" in part of the last remaining Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts.

Of course, many pointed out the perfect timing of the darkness on Liberty Island, which notably occurred on the eve of A Day Without A Woman, a strike that a number of groups planned for Wednesday.

The Twitter account for Women's March, one of the bigger groups in on the strike, sent Lady Liberty their love for standing with their cause, tweeting:
