15 Most Creative and Powerful Signs From the Women’s March in Honolulu

These local women want R.E.S.P.E.C.T.


“No hate in our Aloha State.” “Wāhine power.” “Pussies United.”


That’s the message that Hawai‘i women and their allies wanted to send to the new administration. Thousands of people united in Downtown Honolulu on Saturday, Jan. 21 for the Women’s March O‘ahu to make a point that women’s rights are human rights. 


Marchers joined in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington, a grassroots movement that took place in cities across the U.S. and abroad. The Women’s March is being dubbed as the largest demonstration in U.S. history attended by at least 3.3 million people


Below are some of the powerful signs that stood out from the 1,444 Instagram posts tagged #WomensMarchOahu.

At current count, the worldwide #womensmarch is 3.5million, but it HAS to be more, since we had sister marches in every single US state and major cities across the globe: Auckland, Sydney, New Delhi, Brussels, Berlin, Paris, Nairobi, Cape Town, London, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Toronto, Montreal... Antarctica! This phenomenon isn't something to scoff at and dismiss, Kellyanne Conway and Trump. We will not continue to be silenced. The #resistance has begun, the Empire will see us rise. — (Sorry for the Star Wars talk. I'm a nerd.) — #womensrightsarehumanrights #humanrights #thefutureisfemale #womensmarchoahu @womensmarchoahu @womensmarch #nastywoman #nastywomen #nastywomengetshitdone #getnasty #strongertogether #imstillwithher #pussygrabsback #girlskickass #dosomething
