Our Top 10 Banners from the Women’s Marches

by | Jan 22, 2017

Our favourite signs from  the global Women's Marches

Yesterday millions of people across the world joined together to show solidarity with the Women's March on Washington in D.C. Womens' marches were staged on all contintents, in a total of 616 cities, supported a rallying call to protect women's rights and bodies, diversity, gender equality, the future of our planet and humanity. It was a respectful, but fierce, heart felt plea from all over the world for compassion, unity and tolerance.  The rallies were protests statements against the feared normalisation of the rampant misogyny and racism expressed in the presidential campaign, by the then candidate Mr. Trump, who was inaugaurated as POTUS only on Friday. As one of the top world leader's his power and influence is immense. Importantly, there was a pledge to resist.

Yet, despite the seriousness of the message there was goodwill and humour. We saw pink 'pussy' hats, plane cabins lit up in support and of course brilliant slogans and placards.

Here are our favourite banners and messages from the women's marches from all over the world:
