With more women running for office than ever before, it's time for women and nonbinary people to bring their power to the polls to get these leaders elected, which is the theme for the 2018 Women's March. If you're marching, these 22 creative Women's March 2018 sign ideas can inspire you whether you're making the trek to Las Vegas, or showing up in your hometown.
The 2018 Women's March: Power to the Polls will launch a voter registration tour to "channel the energy and activism of the Women's March into tangible strategies and concrete wins in 2018," according to the Women's March website. And, if we've learned anything from the 2016 presidential election, it's that every vote counts. Women all over the country are taking active steps to dismantle a deeply ingrained patriarchal culture that permeates every part of U.S. society.
"From the first openly transgender woman of color winning an election to public office," the website states, "to the first Asian American woman elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, to first Sikh American to be elected mayor of the city, to the first-ever Latina women elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, to seven cities electing their first Black mayors, and so many more — Women’s March aims to convert the groundswell of momentum and activism into direct electoral power."
While "we are the resistance" is as relevant as ever, after a year of resisting, the standard for creative protest signs will be all that much higher. If you're adding your voice to the conversation, but have a bit of writer's block when it comes to making your Women's March sign, here are some ideas creative ideas to get you started.
