The collection consists of posters, flyers, pussy hats and other ephemera collected by librarians in USC Libraries Special Collections in the aftermath of the Los Angeles Women's March of January 21, 2017. The collection also includes a few items created for the Women's March on Washington.
Background
The Los Angeles Women's March, one of hundreds of such marches that took place around the country and the world on January 21, 2017, the day after Donald Trump's inauguration, was one of the largest of such marches in the United States. The march wound its way from Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles to City Hall and beyond. LAPD estimates put attendance at 100,000 people, but march organizers estimated closer to 750,000 people.
