Thousands of Coloradans turned out today, January 18, for the fourth annual Womxn's March, bringing signs and chants and a yearning to be heard. Every year of the Trump presidency has seen citizens from all communities band together to protest the policies of the current administration, and while the numbers have diminished since that first year, when the Trump era was new and shocking and people were more worried than weary, the wills and voices of the participants have grown stronger. "The first year was all about outrage," said one marcher. "Now it's all about commitment."

Most of the messages come through the homemade signs that marchers pour their hearts into — and so we've profiled those signs in all their powerful glory in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Some years were nerdtastic (Carrie Fisher's untimely passing right before the first march has made her — and Princess Leia, and Star Wars' Rebellion — a face for both feminism and opposition to political tyranny), and others were more solemn. In 2020, there was a decided mix of both the sarcastic and the serious, the pop culture and the political. So without further explanation, we happily offer the protesters — and their beautifully expressive signs — the spotlight.

So, yeah, just a small point of pride that no one in the crowd was carrying torches, threatening any other citizens of either America or the world, or, you know, being Nazis.
