Anyone who was at the sprawling massive Women's March on D.C. last Saturday could only see a small sample of the tens of thousands of creative signs that were made and carried by the hundreds of thousands of marchers. Here are a few of the favorites that crossed my path (most of these photos were taken from a precarious perch on top of a temporary seven-foot tall fence near the Hirschhorn Museum).
