25+ of the Most Creative Protest Signs From the 2019 Women’s March

For the third year in a row, people across the world participated in the Women’s March to advocate and support equality for all walks of life. The demonstrations were noticeably smaller this year—in comparison to the over five million people in the inaugural march—but the essence of the event was not lost. “I came two years ago [to Washington, D.C.]. It’s definitely smaller, but the spirit is very much alive,” a demonstrator told The New York Times. In keeping with the original event, those walking were armed with funny and poignant protest signs.

Popular culture plays a big role in many Women’s March protest signs, and this year was no different. In 2018 there were superheroes, but 2019 broke away from that imagery. Recording artists Ariana Grande and Cardi B were an inspiration to many people marching. Grande’s hit song thank u, next and Cardi B’s recent social media posts voicing her concern over the government shutdown were quoted on many posters.

The 2018 midterm elections saw the most women elected to Congress—and the most diverse, too. It demonstrated that when groups of people band together, they can affect change in a meaningful way. Posters at the Women’s March reflected this positive outlook while also paying homage to those women who are helping to lead the way.

While there is hope for the future, it only comes through engaged citizens; make sure you’re registered to vote. If you’re over 18 and not registered to vote in the U.S., see how to do so here.

Scroll down to see some of the best Women’s March protest signs from 2019.
