The story of the #WomensMarch told in signs

The love and positivity of the throngs at the Womens March on Washington was an inspiring display of democracy. As if the “pussy hats” and chants did not make it clear enough, the signs made an unmistakable statement of anger, disgust and rejection of the policies and positions of the new Trump administration.

The wide range of signs were mostly home-made and handmade with great conviction and passion, or they were mass-produced and chosen carefully with the same determination. Scroll below to get a sense of the vibe at this historic event – stick with it to the end, I promise it’s worth it.

Here is a sampling of the signs on display at the rally and the wide diversity of today’s America that showed up with something to say:
