So this weekend, we saw another stand being made for equality, but this time it was for the Women’s March 2018.
Protest fashion was big last year, but in 2018 it’s gaining serious momentum. The #TimesUp blackout at the Golden Globes gave new meaning to the term “power dressing” and proved that fashion is indeed a mighty tool for promoting social change and gender equality around the world.
So let’s take it back to last year, when political fashion came in the form of pink pussy hats. The hand-knitted caps quickly became a symbol of the Women’s March and of women’s empowerment in general.
As expected, women kept up this tradition to ensure that they were both seen and heard!
All around the world, millions of people took to the streets at the weekend for the Second Annual Women’s March, to fight for equality in all aspects of life.
In response to the protesters signs, Donald Trump tweeted out his support for the march (despite the fact that many of the protests were directed squarely at him!).
As the majority of you will know, it has been a tough year for many of these protesters, who have seen attacks on their reproductive rights, the rise of far-right movements and an immigration reform that is dividing families as well as the nation as a whole.
To prove that this movement is here to stay, thousands of women turned out to voice their displeasure with the current administration in Washington D.C. and just like last year, they held their signs with pride! It appears with each march, these signs are just getting better and better.
Here are some of the wittiest signs spotted from the Women’s March 2018:
As well as the signs, celebrities also voiced their stories and opinions on the ongoing matter. Here below is Natalie Portman speaking for women’s equality:
