The Women's March Defines Protest in the Facebook Age

A rushing river of protesters flooded downtown Washington, DC, today, pink hats stretching as far as I could see. But it’s the signs that stayed with me. “I’m With Her” and “Love Trumps Hate” posters from Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Signs mocking President Trump: “Keep your tiny hands off my rights” and “Can’t build the wall. Hands too small.” People waved “Science is Real” signs and “Stop gun violence” signs, “Black Lives Matter” signs and at least one proclaiming “Grab him by the tax return.”
