Today, pictures from valued commenter randy khan.

These are photos of my favorite signs from this year’s Women’s March in Washington. It was a pretty decent crowd, although nowhere as big as 2017, and the mood was festive, with lots of young women and teenage girls (which made me happy).

    That was pretty awesome. She was being interviewed by NBC News when we saw her. I don’t know if it aired or not.

    The signs are great. I’m glad there was still a significant turnout despite all the controversy.

    Love the signs. Apparently we have a double-secret spell check for protest signs but the other side doesn’t. :-)

    Now that you mention it, I don’t recall seeing a single sign with a spelling error.

    Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed those photos. I had a similar experience at the San Francisco march. The crowd was not as big as the last two years, but still a good turnout and the mood was hopeful.
