Attending the Women's March? Agency Barker is back with new signs to help you show your discontent
The annual protest returns and the agency continues to support with its art
Jan 17, 2020
The fourth annual Women’s March takes place in more than 200 cities around the world on Saturday, Jan. 18. While turnout will likely be smaller than the first march, which saw hundreds of thousands of people don pink “pussy” hats to flood streets and protest against the Trump administration—inaugurated the day prior—organizers have made a conscious effort to be more inclusive than in previous years. The triple themes of this march are climate change, reproductive justice and immigrants' rights.
And for the third year running, New York agency Barker has created a library of eye-catching posters that marchers can download and print out to take with them. More than 30 posters bear familiar slogans like “Girls Just Want to Have Fundamental Rights” and “This Girls Is On Fire,” as well as visual innuendo like “You’re Not the Boss of V” and a “Baby Yoda” from “The Mandalorian” sitting in the Oval Office.
A few tips for anyone planning use the posters this weekend: Print two and staple or tape them back-to-back to make a sturdier, double-sided sign that will stand up to the wind. Add a cardboard roll or strip for a handle, but avoid wooden dowels that might be confiscated. Good luck out there.
