The best signs from today’s Women’s March in London
‘I wish my boyfriend was as dirty as your policies’
Today women gathered in their thousands to march for equality and against bigotry in London, just as they’ll do in a few short hours in New York and DC and all across the UK and US. It’s fair to say that after yesterday’s inauguration the mood was low. People were angry. People were disheartened. People were afraid. But at today’s march the mood couldn’t have felt more different.

And apparently all that anger and activism translated into some really great creative signs. Here are some of the best.

Your hometown’s greatest hits

But since that straightforward premise brings everybody home at…
This girl just invented the most genius way to sneak snacks into the movies, and I’m truly in awe of her intellect
Thomas Edison could never
by Katie Way
I've said it before and I'll say it again: women are smarter than men. And now, thanks to Twitter user @AngelaBrisk, next time I say that and some dude tries to challenge me I'll have definitive proof that I'm right. If you've ever tried to bring outside food into a movie theater, you know that…
