On Saturday, January 18, for the fourth year in a row, women and their allies will gather in cities across the country to argue for “transformative social change” at the 2020 Women’s March. Whether you’ve already got your marching posse together or are still determining where to peacefully protest, it’s time to start prepping your posters. Need some inspiration? Here are 14 Women’s March sign ideas to get your started.
A few tips, though, before you pull out the construction paper. Remember, clarity is key. Make sure your message is straightforward. Puns are great, but they won't stick the landing if they don't make sense. Second, as Shakespeare famously wrote, brevity is the soul of wit. Keep it short and sweet and your clever poster will send the right message.
Finally, borrow a page from your favorite crafter and make your Women's March poster bright, big, and easy to read. DIY is best done with the right materials so spring for the fancy poster board, giant markers, and, hell, why not throw on a little glitter? Just because you're demonstrating doesn't mean you can't have a little fun. (Pro tip: you can find event locations at womensmarch.com)
