Saturday, some 150,000 New Yorkers joined the Women’s March here to signal their solidarity in opposing the declared policies of the new Trump administration. Some reports put that figure as high as 400,000. And across the country, the protestors numbered in the millions.

These women—and many men—often displayed great ingenuity in sign-making, responding to specific statements by Donald Trump and by re-interpreting many traditional protest slogans to reflect their particular grievances with this President.

Consider this series of photos a tribute to the passion, creativity and solidarity of all who marched.
