n Friday., Jan. 20, the man who was caught on tape boasting about how he would "grab her by the pussy" was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. The next day, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced: "That was the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period." (According to Politifact, #45's inauguration numbers are estimated at 250,000 to 600,000 people. Former President Barack Obama's numbers were 1.8 million in 2009 and 1 million in 2013.)
Meanwhile, on Jan. 21, the Women's March became the largest protest in U.S. history, involving an estimated 3.3 to 4.6 million people in nearly 550 cities in the U.S. and 100 cities around the globe, according to The Atlantic.
Here in Bend, several thousand people took to the streets. The march brought out a host of colorful slogans, signs and pussy hats. The creativity was inspiring—but today, looking back at all that's transpired and the activism that's been rampant post-election, this one earns our nod for Best Sign from the Women's March.
Resist on, Benditas and Benditos!
