From Smearing Trump to Bashing Kavanaugh, These Women’s March Signs Suggested Conservatives Weren’t Welcome

Several thousand women (and a few men) came together for the third annual Women’s March to demonstrate in hopes to empower women.

Well … some women.

Looking in any direction, it appeared that the participants of this march wanted nothing to do with empowering conservative women.

The activists in attendance made highly political statements with their posters — many of which had little to do with feminism or empowering women. Several of the signs were targeted at President Donald Trump or other conservative figures like Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Several posters paid homage to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-Mich.) rant in which she vulgarly called for Trump to be impeached, as IJR previously reported.

Others skipped the signs and made their anti-Trump statement with their outfits. As expected, there were several women dressed as characters from the dystopian Hulu Show “The Handmaid’s Tale,” a show where women have no rights.

There was also a “resistance” band that was dressed up as Trump’s border wall. One marcher even dressed up as Jesus to make a statement about migrants.

Of course, there were plenty of signs like these:

It would have been difficult to look in any direction and not see a sign bashing Trump or Republicans for holding different political views even though the president has placed many strong women into places of authority in his administration.

As IJR reported earlier, the Women’s March was not the only march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. The March for All Women aimed to provide women with a rally where they could represent themselves without endorsing the anti-conservative rhetoric of the Women’s March.
