The spectacle of thousands of feminists rallying for abortion rights in U.S. cities Saturday would be hard to put into words — but thankfully many of the protesters captured the vibe with over-the-top signs.
If you don’t scroll down, you’re a misogynist.
The women and their “allies” gathered at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and New York City and at a number of smaller rallies elsewhere to #resist Texas’ recent ban on most abortions and the tightening grip of the patriarchy on “bodies with vaginas.”
- “No matter where you live, no matter where you are, this moment is dark — it is dark — but that’s why we’re here,” Alexis McGill Johnson, the president of Planned Parenthood, told the D.C. rally-goers outside the Supreme Court, which will consider a challenge to Roe v. Wade in its session that started Monday.
- The same Manichean mood was on display across Saturday’s protests, as you can see in these photos of participants’ slogan-emblazoned placards, costumes and effigies.
They’re not joking, so please try not to laugh.
Washington, D.C.: “F*ck them kids!!” 👀:
Somewhere, a riot police officer is wondering where his shield went.
Is he saying men can’t get pregnant?
New York City: Who says the left can’t meme?
A “Handmaid’s Tale” reference, very edgy.
A little on the nose, but OK.
Atlanta: Even the dogs are “pro-choice” here.
Austin, Texas: When you couldn’t afford a bigger sign.
Wait, is this cultural appropriation?
