The 2017 Manif des Femmes took place from 11am to 2pm on January 21st 2017 at Place Des Arts in Montreal. Thousands of men, women, children of all ages arrived at the event to show solidarity with the marches happening in Washington D.C. and in countless other cities around the continent in wake of Donald Trump’s Inauguration as the 45th President of the United States. I had the opportunity to speak to many of the protesters, many of whom were very excited to be vocal about their concerns. In the middle of this event, I even managed to find a pro-Trump marcher.
The signs and posters that people brought with them caught my eye. From the serious, to the hilarious, people demanded to be heard.
