Over the weekend, millions of people from across the U.S. and around the world took to the streets to stand up for women’s rights, human rights, and resistance against a questionable administration. From Washington D.C. to our hometown of Rochester to Los Angeles to Sydney to Nairobi to London and Antarctica, there was an outpouring of dedication, passion and female empowerment. But what was impressive (besides the fact not ONE arrest was made ANYWHERE) were the signs that were being held up my women, men and children all over. The ranged from simple statements of facts to images that made you cry to straight up hilarious ones. Here are some of our favorites from the history-making #WomensMarch.
Very Good Dogs Against Trump
“Good boys against misogyny.” “Even I understand no means no”
“I march for my moms.” We Rate Dogs gave this Very Good Dog a coveted 13/10.
Arts Are Important
The fantastic Uzo Aduba: “What Meryl said.”
Also spotted: “Meryl is properly rated.”
Couldn’t be more accurate: “You’re so vain, you probably think this march is about you.”
A Hamilton/Lin-Manuel Miranda selection: Rise Up!; #Immigrants: we get the job done! and Love is Love is Love is Love is Love.
So many people paid tribute to the badass Princess Leia and the even more phenomenal actress/advocate Carrie Fisher. “We are the resistance,” “A woman’s place is in the resistance,” and Princess Leia in the style of the Rosie The Riveter “We can do it.”
and now an iconic combo photo. carrie fisher AND hamilton.
Coffee Talk with Linda Richman: “Donald Trump’s blind trust is neither blind nor a trust. Discuss.”
Do the trolls even WATCH Game of Thrones? “If progressives are snowflakes then winter is coming.”
Because the scariest thing is ANTM-era Tyra being disappointed in you: ” None of us were rooting for you! How dare you!”
Some hard numbers for you: “CBS:Donald Trump approval rating: 32%. Rotten Tomatoes: Paul Blart – Maul Cop: 33%”
We knew Bey would be represented, but so was Jay: “I’ve got 99 problems and white heteronormative patriarchy is all of them.”
An awesome art reference: “Ceci n’est pas un president” in the style of the iconic Magritte pipe painting, The Treachery of Images.
Beloved feminist Ian McKellen needed no words – his poster was a picture of Spock face-palming.
We take orders from Beyonce, not that orange guy: “Okay ladies now let’s get in formation.”
a fun one for the hollywood type.
Time to reboot the DA: “Dumbledore didn’t die for this.”
“Es Feminista. No Feminazi”. wingardium levi-OH-sa, you dumb dumbs
Donald… urine danger, girl. Ghost puns FTW.
Favorite reference to The Office from the marches: “I feel God in this Chili’s tonight”
Because there’s only so much we can take: “I will not normalize 3 Doors Down.”
Not a sign, but they worked so hard and aren’t women just the VERY BEST?
“why are you so obsessed with me?” regina george and mean girls quotes are always applicable. stop trying to make trump happen.
“Don’t try to grab my pussy it’s made of steel.” when supergirl takes the streets
Things We’re Willing To Believe About Donald Trump
Drag him, Denver: “Trump skis in jeans”
It’s worse than we thought: “Donald Trump uses Comic Sans.”
Other assaults on good taste spotted on signs: Trump doesn’t even read, Trump eats ketchup on steak, and Trump listens to Nickelback.
“I make the best signs. Really terrific signs. I have the best signs. Everybody says so.” SAD!
“Free Melania” (No seriously Melania, do you want us to come get you? We can come up with a signal.)
“Trump, I’ll pee on you for free.”
Things We Definitely Believe About Trump and His Administration
“I’ve seen smarter cabinets at Ikea.” I’d also like to note that I’ve spent longer putting together Ikea cabinets than Trump has assembling his executive cabinet.
“Sex offenders cannot live in government housing.”
“Donald J.Trump will lie about this.” Done and done.
i am forever michelle.

“Never underestimate the power of a faggot with a tambourine.” I not only saw tambourines, I saw dudes with bongos.
“Not gay as in happy. Queer as in fuck you.”
“Shed walls, don’t build them” on a picture of a cartoon uterus. 20 bucks says there are men in DT’s cabinet and sitting as Republicans in Congress who don’t get this one.

I love this kid’s style: “Trump is a butt.”
“You’re fired! 2020” – Love how you can tell this little lady KNOWS she nailed it with this sign.
A respectful cutie named Atlas: “Never too young to respect women”
“I’m marching for our future” She’s even got her superhero cape on. And tutu for good measure.
“Tiny Hands – Yuuuuuge mistake. Sad!” – Some of the coolest middle schoolers I can imagine.
Beautiful British understatements: “ugh,” “This is very bad,” “I’m really quite cross,” “I am very upset.”
Some delightful Sister Suffragettes in Edwardian-style outfits: “same shit, different century.”
A nasty woman in front of the Eiffel Tower: a Trump “Nope” in the style of the Obama Hope posters.
Just the Facts

Current mood: [Middle finger illustration]
Basically me whenever That Guy is pictured near any lady, even those I don’t necessarily know or like: “stay the fuck away from my friends you rapist nazi fuck”

On Trump with a slightly amended hairdo: “Not Today Satan.”
Every. SINGLE. Time. : ” “Screw it. I’ll do it. – Black Women”
When you’d LOVE to be home with Netflix: “So bad even introverts are here.”
Our exact thought process w/r/t sign-making: “UGH where do I even start.”
