Book Review: Artisan Books Why We March Signs of Protest and Hope--Voices from the Women's March


Blurb:
Celebrate the Women’s March with this inspiring collection of 500 images of the most powerful, uplifting, clever, and creative protest signs carried by marchers across the United States and around the world. Organized thematically, the photographs in Why We March--featuring messages about reproductive rights and immigration, cabinet picks and police violence, climate change and feminism--together paint a striking portrait of the hope, defiance, anger, and passion that sent more than 5 million people into the streets to protest. “Women’s Rights = Human Rights.” “Love Trumps Hate.” “Nasty Women Unite.” “Build Bridges, Not Walls.” These messages are a rallying cry for this burgeoning movement, and this collection will serve as both a valuable encapsulation of this unprecedented moment in political history and a powerful reminder of why we march. All royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

My Review: 5 *****
Why We March was such a beautiful collection of powerful and uplifting moments of the march and the protest for women's rights. I stand with Why We March for many reasons and will not get into the political stance because I believe that is march was more than just that. It was a time in our society that women finally took the stand. Artisan Books did a wonderful job in capturing these images of what is happening in our country inline with not just women's rights but with climate change, police violence and more.
