With 578 demonstrations in 82 countries (408 of which in the United States), the Women's March was a huge worldwide protest in support of the women's rights and other causes including LGBTI rights, religious and ethnic minorities and people with disabilities. The march was an inclusive event: everyone who cared about these issues was welcome. Over 500,000 people participated in the Women's March in Washington - three times as many as President Trump's inauguration ceremony.
Protest Signs and pussy hats
The Women's March was a positive, peaceful protest. Two things specifically caught our eye: fantastic signs and pink knitted 'pussy hats' - a reaction to Trump's widely covered statement "grab' em by the pussy". The signs are now collected by libraries and museums, among which the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
