By now, more than 200,000 people are planning to attend the Women’s March on Washington taking place on January 21st, the day after Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. With more than 600 sister marches across the country and across the globe, the March is arguably one of the biggest inauguration-related mobilizations the United States has ever seen.
The March was organized in response to Trump’s election. But it goes beyond rallying up against Trump, the man. It’s to protest the misogynistic, divisive and prejudicial rhetoric that permeated the campaign season. The event organizers thus call on people of all identities and backgrounds to come together, fight for equal human rights and bring issues like family leave, healthcare, women’s health and access to abortion and birth control at the forefront of policy making. Marchers’ message is, in a nutshell, women’s and civils rights cannot and should not be ignored.
With all protests comes a call for change. And with all calls for change come inspiring posters. If you are planning on attending the march -- for all the women, all the mothers, all the little girls and all the marginalized people you know -- and still need to make a sign, we want to help get your creative, activist juice flowing.
