Originally spurred by the election of President Donald Trump, the Women’s March has become an annual event involving tens of thousands of women showing up to demonstrate over a range of issues, including calling for racial equality, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, health care access and protections for the environment, to name a few.
As women took to the streets, they carried some really clever, poignant and sharp signs. Here are some of the best we’ve seen.
