Women's March Signs en Español | Favorites

On Saturday, Women marched in Washington, DC, and cities across the nation to support women’s rights and protest President Donald Trump. It was the largest march in over a decade. Women felt they needed to be heard and they surely did! Some of the challenges facing women are wage inequality and health care and they are even greater for Latinas. During the march many Latinas were seen marching for women's rights. They felt they needed to give those women who are often ignored the voice they deserve. Many signs were made to express their feelings. They ranged from serious to funny, from small to large. Today I wanted to share with you all some of the signs in Spanish I saw online that I loved from this historical day. I'll also be including English translations for those who need help. 
The first sign said "Xingona y Xicana." That translates to, a really fuckin cool and mexican-american female. I've always loved that saying, it makes me feel really proud to be a mexican-american female. The second sign said "No te metas con mi CUCU." That translates to, do not mess with my butt/pussy. Many people know this saying from a really famous song from La Sonora Dinamita called Mi Cucu. Back in the days, it was the song played at every party and this particular saying was very catchy, so I immediately loved this sign. The next sign was hilarious and it said "Me quejo por que no soy PENDEJO!" That translates to, I complain because I’m not a dumbass. I remember as a child my parents would always tell me "Te quejas mucho," which means you complain to much. When I saw this sign it reminded me a lot of my parents. They would never call me or my siblings Pendejo but the concept of this saying reminded me of them. 
The next sign I saw that I loved said "COCHINA!" That translates to Nasty woman! If you don't remember during the third presidential debate, Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" while she was talking. Like many females, I was surprised he would call her a nasty woman in front of the Nation. I love how simple this saying is but it speaks volume. The next sign I loved said "Panocha Power!" which mean Pussy power. It's such a simple sign but with so much meaning. Women are power! Women are the future! 
The next sign said "Respeta mi existencia o espera resistencia." That translates to respect my existence or expect resistance. I get Princess Leia (may she rest in peace) vibes when I saw this sign. She would be very proud of us and I am sure wherever she is she is supporting us. The next signs was very powerful it said "Por cada frontera existe tambien un puente," which means for every border, there’s also a bridge. This sign reminds me that regardless of whatever obstacles we will be facing there will always be a way to overcome it. It's important to always remember that. Lastly and probably my favorite sign said "Ni santas, ni putas, solo mujeres." That means not saints, not whores, just women. Women are often seen as objects but at the end of the day we are women with our own bodies, our own minds, and our own power! 

There was so many beautiful signs made with such powerful sayings, it was hard to limit myself. After the Women’s March in Washington, DC ended, many women hung their handmade signs on the fence in front of the White House. There are tons of pictures online of these incredible signs, I suggest you should all check them out and read some of the incredible messages people had on this historical day.
