Thousands of Chicagoans gathered at Grant Park last year for the third Women’s March following Trump’s election. In a year in which crowds and marches aren’t possible, we instead take a look back at some of our highlights from 2020.
The Women’s March first began on January 21, 2017, the day after President Trump was inaugurated. The official march took place in D.C., and many other cities around the globe have since taken on the day as an annual tradition, including Chicago.
While the organization behind the march has faced criticism at times, the movement continues to host one of the nation’s largest protests every year.
The Women’s March is also known for powerful, poignant, and sometimes hilarious protest signs. Here are some of our favorites from last year’s march.
