These Ladies on Their Way to the Women’s March in Washington Will Inspire You to No End
As Donald Trump’s first day in office comes to a close, many are looking ahead to a new day: Namely, tomorrow, when an approximate one million women (including some of Brit + Co’s very own!) will be taking Washington — and other cities around the world, for that matter: Australia already had their march being a day ahead — by storm.
Yet, this is set to be a very different protest than the ones currently making headlines at the moment, with women (and men!) alike already feeling plenty inspired as they make their way to what will be protest ground zero.

1. @shanek808: This group of ladies was all smiles aboard their “#JetBluePink” flight.
Unbelievably proud, MY cousin is going to march on Washington DC with a plane full of other proud, dedicated women https://t.co/AnFesc7I0o

My flight to D.C. right now could almost double as a private jet for Women's March attendees 👏🏼👯

My flight from ABQ was mostly women, heading to the WOMEN'S MARCH ON WASHINGTON 2017. maybe 80%. Amazing.

6. @kpmagnolia: Making the trip even more special were both the flights and the crews — Southwest airlines went so far as to change its lights to pink for a flight from Chicago to Baltimore on Thursday, as @kpmagnolia gave us a glimpse of. “When your Southwest flight crew celebrate a plane full of kickass women and men going to the Women’s March by lighting it up!” she wrote.

7. @artistforever: One attendant showed her appreciation in a more personal way, giving this handwritten note to a passenger.

10. @Flor Blake: Yet another attendant on Spirit Airlines asked for a round of applause for all the “Nasty Women on board,” saying, “Just remember, we don’t take no *ish from no man.”
Amen to that, sister!
