t may have been a year since last year's record-smashing 2017 Women's March, but the protest fever hasn't lessened. In the year that's passed, we've seen the #MeToo movement blossom, Time's Up, and intersectional feminism has begun to make its way onto the map.
And the fight isn't over. Women and their male allies showed up in droves today, all across the country. There were more than 200,000 protestors in New York, according to the New York Times and Los Angeles boasted a crowd of 500,000.
Will all of this in mind, it can be a somber day thinking of all the ways that women, people of color, and LGBT+ people have been marginalized throughout history, but don't be fooled — this is not a day a mourning.
These 10 signs from marches across America tell us that despite the circumstances, protestors still definitely have a sense of humor...
"Bring back full sentences"
Trump continues to speak to the American people like a reality TV show star, in short, often completely nonsensical bursts of words strung together with confusing non-truths. If all we manage to do is bring full sentences back in 2018, that will be a start.
"I wish men believed in women as much as they believed in bitcoin"
This is just a solid burn. Good job.
Celebrities, dealmakers, and fans at the Sundance Film Festival didn’t miss out on their chance to march this year either. With Jane Fonda at the helm, the Sundance “Respect Rally” gathered a crowd of close to 8,000 people, despite the snowy conditions.
"Where the f*ck do I start?"
This sign speaks to me. Yes, girl. Yes. Where do we even start?
"God is coming and SHE IS PISSED"
This is really turns the tables on you. You start thinking this is a religious sign and then BAM. We love a good twist ending.
