Angel Olsen, Michael Stipe, Madonna, and more participated in Women’s Marches (pics)

It appears Trump has finally responded to the series of Women’s Marches that drew over 2 million participants worldwide this weekend. As CNN reports from Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s first official White House briefing:

When asked how Trump felt about the Women’s March on Saturday, which drew hundreds of thousands across the US, Spicer said Trump “has a healthy respect for the First Amendment.” He also pointed out that some people were marching for issues, rather than against the president.

We’ve already posted pictures from the Women’s Marches in Washington DC, New York City, and Chicago. Above you can check out a second set of pictures from Saturday’s huge march in DC.

Among the participants in the marches included many musicians, like Best Coast, members of The National, Haim, Amanda Palmer, Merrill Garbus of tUnE-YaRdS, Grimes, Michael Stipe, Tegan & Sara, Madonna, Janelle Monae, Regina Spektor, members of Wilco, Perfume Genius, Kim Gordon, Chelsea Wolfe, Britt Daniel of Spoon, Eleanor Friedberger, Torres, Mary Timony, Angel Olsen, Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak, Dan Deacon, and more. Check out pictures of them marching below. David Byrne also went to Washington, and while we don’t have his picture, he did write something about the experience, which you can also read below. Update: thank you Sara for sharing a picture of David Byrne at a march with us.

I went to the Women’s March in Washington on Saturday. It was glorious, I’m still high from the experience. Two thoughts:

1. The question is sometimes raised, “what good do demonstrations do?” Especially one’s like this, that cover a whole range of issues; i.e. broad target and focus. I’d respond based on Saturday (and past experiences) that these kinds of demonstrations are sometimes not as much about one specific issue but about solidarity and affirmation. They allow participants to actually see one another–very different than online–and to confirm common hopes and concerns: we are here, there are a LOT of us, we are not going away. We vote!

(I fully expect that resistance around specific issues will follow, and will be re-watching “Eyes on The Prize” for tactical lessons!)

2. There was a LOT of humor in this march. I don’t know if this was because there was less testosterone, but it’s a super effective tactic. Comedians and comics can say things that break the ice and are acceptable where blunt angry statements hit walls. There were so many hilarious signs- a huge part of the experience was laughter and smiles. A resistance with laughs is irresistible. (via David Byrne’s journal)
