On Saturday 21st January, 2017, women marched in peaceful protest. Over 3 million people all over the world marched in solidarity with American women, and showed their love and understanding with some of the most clever, funny, and inspirational protest signs around. We have collected some of these signs from various protests- all bookish and literary inspired! On the right you can see the ACTUAL Margaret Atwood who joined the march.
Peruse this selection of our favourite signs, inspired by books and bookish characters… Let us know your favourite, or if you have seen any more!
