Over the weekend, millions of women and men across the nation took to the streets to march for women's rights. Besides the march possibly being the largest demonstration in U.S. history, something else other than the high attendance numbers stood out. It was the signs being carried by women, men and children of color. Although marches for women have not always been inclusive nor advocated for intersectionality, Black participants made sure their presence was seen and felt. Here are a few signs from the march that paid homage to Black women who fought for a better future for us all.
To the young girl on this picture, thank you for being so kind to me today, thank you for your smile, thank you for inspiring, thank you for letting me march with you, thank you for being you. #WhyIMarch #WomensMarch in Chicago #WomenTogether #WomensRightsAreHumanRights and girls, too! #StrongerTogether #BlackGirlMagic
First women I saw at the march. If our feminism isn't intersectional, it's just a pep rally. If we want to know how to move forward- we should follow the women of color. They've been leading the march toward justice fiercely wisely tirelessly for ages. @latashamorrison @austinchanning @luvvie @tamikadmallory @aliciakeys @janetmock @oprah
