US President Donald Trump sure seems popular, but not in the way he wants, as yesterday’s Women’s Day March around the world attracted huge crowds to protest the current administration’s one-year anniversary. It’s been a long year for many of us, and the streets were full with the signs of creative resistance, including over 500,000 people in Los Angeles, 300,000 protesters in Chicago (which was more than last year), 200,000 in New York, and 80,000 in San Francisco.
Creativity was on full display, and we gathered some of the best we found from our friends, colleagues, and readers from around the world. Feel free to post your own sign in the comments.
