Empowering, Feminist & Funny Poster Ideas for the 2019 Women’s March

Controversy won’t slow the Women’s March down. In spite of accusations of anti-Semitism, bullying, and improper management, the third annual march will take Washington, DC on Saturday, January 19. A second march, born out of dissension among the national march’s organizers, will take place in New York City on the same day, along with marches in major cities across the country, like Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and more.

Since confirming that the march would, well, march on in 2019, two of the the national organization’s co-chairs have been accused of making anti-Semitic comments on more than one occasion, which were detailed in a December investigative report by Tablet. The Women’s March said it “[denounces] anti-semitism, and there should be no confusion about that,” but still several organization, including the Democratic National Committee, have withdrawn their support. Regardless, the march is taking place as planned this weekend.

In New York City, the Women’s March Alliance (not affiliated with the national organization) has put together its own march, set to begin near Columbus Circle at 11am. The march will compete with The Women’s Unity Rally, organized by the grassroots group behind the 2017 march in DC, that’s taking place in Foley Square at 11am and running until 1:30pm. Is your head spinning yet?

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Those who wish to participate in demonstrations who are unable to travel to DC or New York are in luck. According to information on Women’s March, Inc.’s website, there are planned demonstrations in just about every state. Most of the events are independently organized, while others were put together with the help of the national organization. We recommend finding dedicated social media pages and checking for updates on your own local march.

If the drama hasn’t put you off attending a march (and it shouldn’t!), you’ll need a sign to carry with you that asserts your stance. Some marchers opt for powerful signs, others take a more feminist route while some go for just plain funny ones. Whatever you decide on, carry that sign with pride and conviction.
