On January 21st, hundreds of thousands of women gathered in various cities in the US and around the world to march in support of women’s rights.

The march in Washington, D.C, which kickstarted the movement drew an enormous crowd.  Chimamanda Adichie, a feminist icon of note, was there to lend her support.

She shared photos of her time at the march on Facebook and highlighted a few of her favorite protest posters.
