It’s estimated that 2.5 million people across the world marched in solidarity for the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday (Jan 21).
Social media platforms were dominated by coverage of these events and if you watched any of it you probably saw some pretty clever signage. Let’s highlight some of the best of the best starting with the next generation!
Young and old alike took part in these Women’s Marches, which was mobilized by the U.S. presidential election but was about so much more.
“My favorite sign from yesterday's DC women's march.” <Photo via Reddit. From comments on Reddit> “That's my dad, and it took an hour the day before the march to convince him to go. The sign was his idea. He just wasn't sure if he should go and take any of the spotlight away from the women who should be getting the attention. I told him that, for better or for worse, people tend to listen to people who look like him. This is his email to me after the march: "I was more popular today than any other time in my life, including when I won the Canadian tennis tournament. ...I hadn’t protested since the Vietnam War.” #womensmarch 🇺🇸 Share your story at: elephantjournal.com/submit (all perspectives welcome, elephant is about dialogue, science, empathy & facts—but not one point of view)🐘
There also wasn’t a shortage of pop culture references!
