As with January’s Women’s Marches, thousands of women took to the streets on Wednesday to both celebrate International Women’s Day and participate in A Day Without Women, a solidarity strike for equal rights. Naturally, there was a lot to say, but some of the most memorable statements were made without uttering a word. Just as they did during the marches, the signs women (and a few good men) carried did the talking. Here, we’ve gathered some of our favorites. Prepare to be inspired:

2. Ovary Office: We mean… they DO both start with “OVA!”

3. Immigrant Rights: These women marched for both immigrant AND women’s rights, saying, “You’ve built a world on our backs, the foundation will crack when we rise.”

4. Body Canvas: This woman didn’t need paper to make her voice heard, using her baby bump as her canvas instead.

5. Old Patriarchy: The sign on the left gets right to the point. This patriarchy business? It’s getting a little stale.

6. New Narrative: This sign holder changed the narrative on rape culture, taking victims out of the equation and holding perps accountable instead.

7. To Those Who Care: For many, like this woman, today was a time to celebrate female heroes on a personal level, giving a nod to those who’ve inspired us.

8. Be the Solution: This protestor made some strong feelings about President Trump known, vowing to be part of the solution in the process.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - MARCH 08: Thousands of demonstrators attend a rally for International Women's Day on March 8, 2017 in Melbourne, Australia. Marchers were calling for de-colonisation of Australia, an end to racism, economic justice for all women and reproductive justice, as well as supporting the struggle for the liberation of all women around the world, inclusive of trans women and sex workers.

10. Go-Getter: This sign showed what women REALLY dig for that starts with a “G”: GOALS.

11. Spelled Out: This little boy broke it down for us in terms he could relate to, and we wholeheartedly agree: “Witches ARE as good as wizards,” yo!

12. Respect My Existence: Seen on many various signs, this quote became something of a battle cry for the day.

13. Supportive Partner: Our favorite sign of all was not, in fact, held by a woman, but by her husband on her behalf: “I’m marching for my wife, she is taking the day off.” A man after our own hearts!
