Description
A collection of Women's March protest posters from the marches held in Sacramento, California 2017 and 2018.
Background
The Women's March was a worldwide protest march held on January 21, 2017 (and again in 2018) to advocate legislation and policies regarding human rights and other issues, including women's rights, immigration reform, healthcare reform, reproductive rights, the environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, and workers' rights. The protests were heavily aimed at Donald Trump, immediately following his inauguration as President of the United States, due to his statements and policy positions which were regarded by many as anti-women, offensive, or corrupt. The 2017 march was the largest single-day protest in United States history.
