Anti-Trump protesters have staged a counter Inauguration of sorts as the Women’s March on Washington drew massive crowds to the National Mall.
The Washington Post reported that more than 600 marches are simultaneously scheduled throughout the nation and world to protest the incoming administration of Donald Trump, who was sworn in as the 45th American president on January 20.
Celebrities from feminist icon Gloria Steinem to filmmaker Michael Moore to Madonna addressed the crowds, as many people held up protest signs. Early estimates said the turn out in Washington could reach record numbers and was up to at least 500,000 people.
In her speech, Madonna cursed and said she thinks about blowing up the White House.
The anti-Trump protest signs have become almost an art form, first emerging in earnest after the election, and continuing on Inauguration Day and now at the march. The signs often reference events in the news, or accuse Trump of authoritarianism, although many of them focus on Trump’s record toward women.
Here are some of the most interesting protest signs from the Women’s March on Washington:
