Powerful photos show just how big women’s marches were around the world

  • Hundreds of thousands of marchers gathered to make their voices heard at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday — but they weren’t the only ones marching.
  • Sister marches, hundreds more of them, were held in cities around the globe. See more photo from the ground

Stayed up ‘til 4 in the morning working on this bad boy– a submission to the Women’s March on Washington call for art.

White men didn’t win the election for Trump — white female misogynists did

According to exit polls, 53% of white women, many of them college-educated and many of them young, chose Trump. In doing so, they didn’t just turn their backs on the opposing candidate; they stood on the backs of others — people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ people — to maintain a social order in which they too are second-class citizens. Feminist writer Ariel Levy has a blunt, 3-word term for these women.
