As 100,000 people turn out for the Women's March in London, we look back on the most badass banners helping to spread the women's equality message
Words by Rosie Benson
On Saturday, 100,000 women, men and children took to London’s street to stand up for women’s rights. They marched, they chanted and they brandished awesome banners to show solidarity with women around the world facing their reproductive and healthcare rights being reversed by the new US president.
The message of the march struck a global chord, so much so that protests took place in seven continents, from Washington in the US to Antarctica. Essentially – there isn’t a land on earth that hasn’t felt the impact of this movement.
Marie Claire was in the thick of Saturday’s Women’s March in London to shout about our #handsoffourrights campaign and we’ve rounded up our favourite protest banners.
