Why We March: Signs of Protest and Hope -- Voices From the Women's March (2017, Artisan; 264 pages)
This is a book dedicated to those who marched and those who continue to march, and it is a book about the voices from the Women's March, a historical event that happened on January 21 of 2017, when millions of women and men gathered and marched in all fifty states in the U.S. and in different places in the world on all seven continents. All the marchers together formed one of the largest demonstrations in political history. This book is a compilation of photographs of the signs they carried, which quickly circulated around the globe.
The signs offer a unique answer to the question “Why do you march?” The examples are fantastic and inspiring. Grandmothers, mothers and daughters, immigrants, women and men of color, boys, dads, grandfathers. They all had a reason to march, and they all had a message to send on their signs, or with their outfits, with thousands of pink hats sending it.
“I march for my future,” “You can try to divide. We will rise and unify,” “1968 is calling, don’t answer,” “Nope”, “No more nice kitty,” “Celebrate diversity, Love is Love,” “Healthcare and Justice for All,” “USA Expats in Solidarity with Sisters Everywhere,” “Hear US,” “Welcome to the Resistance Day!,” “I march for equality,” “Love looks pretty on you,” “I am You,” “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun-Damental Rights,” are a few of many messages that the book brings along to serve as a testimony of many powerful voices.
The book is delightful and interesting even for those who may find the idea too political.
