The millions of people who took to the streets all over the world this weekend in a show of solidarity for women’s rights (and, really, human rights) left me feeling energized and incredibly inspired. The fact that the Women’s March protests were peaceful and charged with positivity makes them even more powerful.
I got lost in the deepest depths of the internet looking at photos from marches all over the world and had to share some of my favorites. While there were plenty of giggle-inducing jabs at Donald Trump, I decided to leave them out (well, except for the Supergirl one which doesn’t make fun of him as much as confront him). I truly believe that not resorting to spewing hate and name calling makes the message so much stronger.
Like Michelle Obama said “When they go low, we go high.”

One thing I love about the photos I’ve seen is that they truly look like America. Men and women from every age, ethnicity, and religion showed up in droves to have their voices heard. I hope we continue to build off this momentum and prove that we will not sit back idly, but we will fight for the things we believe in.
