This weekend, bad-ass women all over the world marched to prove that we’re not going anywhere, and it was awesome. While the girl power was inspirational all around, we also got some much needed laughs from some of the incredible signs. Here are some of the baddest betches that were out marching.

Rihanna didn’t even need a sign to kill the game.
Given my lack of creativity and staying woke even after being supremely lazy, this is my favourite sign from the #WomensMarch pic.twitter.com/NadsIzZtvj

This is our desired level of effort.

Harsh, but probably accurate.
I asked some sign makers at the #WomensMarch to pose with their creations, and then tell me about them. https://t.co/sgi7SdR38W pic.twitter.com/uJDHp9n14q

A day after the beginning of the end, i.e. Trump’s inauguration as President, women and people who care about women are marching on Washington D.C and cities around the country. Yeah, you’ve probably heard about it and/or received a Facebook invite to a similar march in your hometown. But ew, marching = exercise = work, so you should just stay at home. Right? As our now president (*screaming internally*) would say, WRONG. Here’s why you need to give a shit.
So WTF is the Women’s March?
Crowds are planning to march along the National Mall, like majorly big crowds, too. Hundreds of thousands are expected to turn out and turn up in D.C. alone, and probz millions more in marches organized around the country. You can find your local march here.
Probably the most important thing to note is that the marches aren’t being called “protests” for a reason. Organizers and marchers are saying they are a way to “promote women’s equity and defend other marginalized groups”. So, yes, even if you voted for the screaming cheeto as President, you can still march and support equality. I’m p sure the two aren’t mutually exclusive.
Though, to stand up to the pussy-grabbing POTUS, women are making a buying “pussyhats”—pink knit hats with cat ears, naturally. If you don’t look good in hats, you can just come up with a shirt or a sign or some other clever thing to wear.
Why should you care about women’s issues and this march?
UH because you are one, or at least, were birthed by one. Also, if you like your insurance to pay for your birth control, want access to female health care, think men and women should be paid equally for the same job, and don’t want to end up as a tribute in the Hunger Games, you might want to start standing up for yourself, fellow betches, and the future. Just sayin.
