Your Complete Guide To The 2018 Women’s March

On January 21st, 2017, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, over 4 million people in the US marched in the largest single-day protest in American history: the Women’s March. Happy one year anniversary, ladies.

I want to recognize how far we’ve come in a year – I get a little choked up thinking about it. What started as #ImWithHer, became #NotMyPresident, then the Weinstein Effect spurred #MeToo, and now… #TIMESUP. This weekend it’s time to break out our pussy hats and brilliantly crafted protest signs once again for the 2018 Women’s March.

At last year’s march, we discovered our collective power. This year’s march is all about harnessing that into political power.

This year’s Women’s March is themed “Power to the Polls”

Women’s March organizers decided to host the main anniversary event in Nevada because it’s a swing state with the potential to vote blue for the 2018 Senate election. The #PowerToThePolls event will kickoff a national voter registration and mobilization tour focusing on 10 swing states across America. Vegas was also selected because of recent gun violence and sexual harassment. The 2018 Women’s March will address issues including “basic rights for women, immigrants, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, the religious and nonreligious, people of color, and even Mother Earth.” All genders and colors will stand together for equality, tolerance, and justice. Whether you’re male, female, alien, black, white, or purple… you should be there to support this historical movement. As the Women’s March site reads, “We are the leaders we have been waiting for.”

The 2018 Women’s March: When & Where

This weekend, starting Saturday, January 20th, Women’s March events span over 200 global locations. The events are also listed on Facebook. The events are free and RSVP is encouraged so organizers and police know what to expect.

Additional Women’s March events are scheduled for Sunday, January 21st – including the Las Vegas Power to the Polls kickoff event. The main Las Vegas event will also be live-streamed on the #PowerToThePolls website.

Protest Signs

I want us all to shine here, people. Check Pinterest for inspiration. (Be sure to take photos and tag @brainsoverblonde and #flexyourfemale. I’m lit DYING to see what you come up with!) Signs should be made of poster board, paper, or cardboard. You can’t use wooden or metal poles/handles – so if you want something to hold your sign with, make it out of a wrapping paper roll. As my friend’s mom aptly warned her, “there will be signs with vaginas on them!” So don’t be afraid to get a lil frisky (I know I am). Why are you marching? Share below!
