It’s January 20th, so you know what that means: It’s time to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Trump taking over the White House. Haha, just kidding. It’s the day of the second annual Women’s March. The tradition for women (and male allies) to take to the streets to advocate for progressive ideas began last year in dozens of cities as a counterpoint to the far-less attended Trump inauguration, one of the first strikes in the ongoing “Resistance.” This year, people came out in huge droves once again in cities around the world, uniting as one to protest and speak out against the callous, sexist, and destructive policies of Trump and Trump-like entities.
Among the most indelible and memorable images from the marches across the country are the signs. Marchers really outdid themselves, using their limited amount of space to get across messages that were pointed, poignant, incendiary, compassionate, truthful, or funny—or sometimes all of the above.
Here are some of the best signs caught by photographers.
