women’s march on chicago

Unity. Catharsis. Stories. Signs — satirical and heartfelt.

More images from yesterday’s Women’s March on Chicago.

Incredible to hear the stories especially of those a generation, or more, older than me talk about marches past: demonstrations to support the women’s movement in the early ’70’s, the anniversary of Roe v Wade, protests against Vietnam and Nixon.
