This is a collection of photographs taken around the world on 21st January, 2017 when millions of people came together for the Women’s March. It was one of the largest political demonstrations to have ever happened in history. This is a documentation of people coming together for one cause regardless of age, gender or race putting aside all of their differences to fight together against a common problem. I absolutely love that they decided to collect the pictures and put them all in one book. They also listed down all the places that people assembled for the march on that day even though there is photographic evidence in the book. I think the wit that came with some of the signs was impressive and to have a collection of many of them in one place is good. There were a lot of funny ones in there but also some that were thought provoking. It really sucks knowing that women have been trying to get their rights for so many years but they still keep getting held back.

There also some quotes thrown in a couple of times which was great but I wish there was a lot more of that or some paragraphs talking about the issues people were protesting.

All the proceeds from this book will go to Planned Parenthood.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.
