This book features 500 of the signs carried at the Women's March in 2017. It highlights their anger, eloquence, provocation, and most of all their hope for the future.
The Women’s March held on January 21, 2017, in cities across the United States and around the globe brought together people of all stripes for a massive demonstration in response to the election and inauguration of President Donald J. Trump. Today’s political demonstrators arm themselves with symbols from poster history, borrowing the power of their ideology while crafting new meaning. Our exhibition 20/20 Insight: Posters from the 2017 Women’s March looks at this phenomenon within this larger context, both to understand what came before and to encourage participation in the future of our democracy.
