After spending all day Friday surrounded by people celebrating the inauguration of Donald Trump, nothing was more needed (by the Jezebel staff included) than today’s Women’s March on Washington. The marchers were thoughtful, their spirits were high, and it was just the right balm to soothe our broken (now mended) hearts.

Here are some of our favorite, most funny, and poignant protest signs from the day:

Left to right: A protester is ready to become one of Donald Trump’s problems, a pithy reminder to protect your sisters’ reproductive rights, and a warning of what will happen to men who infringe on their reproductive freedom. Snip snip!

Intricate and brilliant signs abound! The woman in the photo on the right spent days cross-stitching her “PUSSY GRABS BACK” message and is rightfully proud.

“Somos las hijas de inmigrantes” or “We are the daughters of immigrants,” says one Chicago Bulls fan.

Inanimate! Objects! Support! Women!

A clean water activist comes all the way from Flint, a warning that Republicans are not worth your sexual healing, and a very fun way to resist.


BONUS: A sign I accidentally photographed that read “Donald Trump is an anagram for Lord Damp Nut and he is not my president.”

A glorious display of patriotism. A glorious sign calling Trump “Orange Hitler” and insulting his tiny hands.

Next time Trump tries to grab a pussy, he’ll hopefully encounter vagina dentata; this Broadway show that’s gonna be YUGE; an honest woman voicing our needs (because toilets were scarce).

Resist every day.

To those who marched: Thank you and don’t stop fighting.
