The grassroots movement supporting women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and equality in the wake Trump’s inauguration began with the single march on Washington, but went global to include 151 cities in 58 countries outside of the US. In New Zealand, thousands of women, men, boys and girls rallied in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

Here are some of our favourite placards from on the day:

My pussy, my rules: 10/10 sign. 15/10 hashtags.

 

Mana magazine editor Leonie Hayden couldn’t make it to the march, but was there in spirit.
