Well, the day is here. It's time for you to pull up your sleeves and get to work. The first order of business is to get ready for the Women's March, and if you're in need of some inspiration, here are some powerful Women's March sign ideas that you can bring with you.
With all of the thousands of people marching, it may seem like your own sentiments will get lost in the crowd — but they won't. You're one person marching, and there will be countless individuals brushing shoulders with you all day. Each one of them will see your sign, and it will give them one more thing to think about, and one more thing to fight for. Right now, everyone needs all the messages of support that they can get.
Whether you'll be holding a sign supporting a specific group that the new president has maligned, a right that you now feel is endangered, or simply the whole community of marchers around you and around the world, just remember that your voice is important. Keep the sign in your bedroom and let it remind you not to stop fighting. No matter what the incoming administration might say or do, dissent is not un-American. So get out there, and dissent loudly.
1There Is No Force More Powerful Than A Woman Determined
This is something that the new POTUS had better remember during his time in office.
2Beauty And Strength In Diversity
This is something that most Americans should know — but it's never bad to keep on hammering the point in.
Hillary Clinton might not have won the election, but her campaign slogan still stands strong.
4Shepard Fairey's New Work
Artist Shepard Fairey, the man who designed Obama's Yes We Can posters, has come out with a new series for Donald Trump's inauguration. The series depicts a Muslim woman, an African-American woman, and a Latina woman, and you'll find them as full-page ads in the Jan. 20 edition of The Washington Post. Buy a copy and bring them along with you if you want a super easy and also beautiful way to show that you're an ally.
5The Future Is Female
There may be an assault on women's rights at the moment, but that will certainly not last forever.
This one is so simple, and yet oh so meaningful. It doesn't just apply for the march on Jan. 21 — the Trump administration should expect strong women to stand up to it at every step.
7I Won't Sit Down, Shut Up, Or Behave
It's 2017, and we're ready to cause some good trouble.
8Our Children Are Watching
For the last eight years, children have had Barack Obama as their ultimate role model — and now they have a man who is in many ways his polar opposite. It's up to the people, then, to give children models to emulate.
9What These Fourth Graders Said
Children get what's going on — and they know exactly what to say against it, simply and beautifully.
10Women's Rights Are Human Rights
Clinton's words from 1995 have never been more important than today.
11Love Trumps Hate
This is another one that you've definitely seen before, but that doesn't make its message any less powerful.
12The Time Is Always Right To Do What Is Right
Keep the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. going just a little bit longer.
13Who Or What You March For
Another simple but powerful one — what brings you out to march?
14I Criticize America Because I Love America
This is an important message, and one that blind patriotism too often ignores. Hate isn't the opposite of love; apathy is. Love of country is best expressed as a desire and drive to make it the best possible version of itself.
15Hear Our Voice
And hundreds of thousands of voices, when raised together, are quite loud. Let this be the beginning of a presidency, and the beginning of a movement to go along with it at every step of the way.
These are just a few of the inspiring slogans that you can bring with you to make your voice loud and clear. Use one of these, or make a sign that speaks to the most important cause that you yourself are marching for.
