The Women’s March wasn’t just a push for diversity, unity and understanding. It was a way for progressives — alienated by the inauguration of President Donald Trump and the success of far-right movements around the world — to show they’re still moving forward through uncertainty and fear.
The Washington movement also sparked 673 “sister marches” in cities and countries around the world, from Chicago, Illinois to Jos, Nigeria and Moscow, Russia, and participants numbered in the millions.
To capture the Women’s March, Scopio, a team led by #WomenInTech, created a microsite with relevant hashtags and keywords related to the event. Brilliant results popped up on the page in real time over the weekend.
We’re proud to show some of the most poignant posters we saw at the Women’s March. Each photo was posted on Twitter or Instagram, showing the power social media sites to connect us all. Girl power!
