150+ Terrific Feminist Slogans for Your #WomensMarch Protest Sign

Thinking about the Trump presidency and the regressive politics coming with it can torpedo any sensible person’s sense of humor.

But who wants to spend a whole day at the #WomensMarchOnWashington, or anywhere else, waving a sign saying “Oppression is Depressing“? We need some clever, catchy, expressive slogans for our signs if we want to “make protest signs great again.”

Luckily, groups around the US are rising to that challenge. Our friend Rhea Beddoe and her co-activists at Executive Women For Hillary got together over the weekend to make signs. They pooled their google skills and their creative resources, and put together the list, below, of over 150 great slogans. I added a few of my own, and we’d love to see yours!

As Rhea reminded me, “The best messages (1) Can be seen from far away, (2) Are succinct and pithy, and (3) Draw impact & power by tapping into emotions.”
