On Saturday, thousands of people gathered in Washington D.C. for the Women's March on Washington to stand up against a presidency that seems to threaten our basic human rights. And while the march itself is something that should be taken seriously by everyone, some of the protesters have been able to muster up a sense of humor with their clever Women's March signs. From referencing Donald Trump's hair to highlighting how we've essentially transcended backwards in history, protesters around the country are proving that speaking up for what we believe in can be both serious and seriously clever.
