Women's marches 

We are living in historical times. These manipulated photos make up a quilt that demonstrates a variety of views and issues, expressed in a peaceful manner, the day after the U.S. Presidential Inauguration of 2017.






















And there are a lot more like those. 
Comments welcome below.

It was so heartwarming to see all the women marching for equality and respect of all citizens. The marches were massively peaceful and without incident. The little hats knitted to represent women are strong and will not let their representation be ignored. This is a grassroots movement that will reverberate much longer than one day. Women are the natural peacemakers of the world.

I like seeing expressions of democracy, whether it's people attending a polling booth or a peaceful demonstration. I don't like riots and violent revolutions where innocent people get killed.

There were peaceful marches and protest marches in Australia today. It's 26 Jan, Australia Day, but people are asking for the date to be moved, to respect the Aborigines that were here before the British. The Aboriginals call 26 th Jan Invasion Day. There have been petitions and editorials asking for a new date for a national celebration of identity.
