Diana writes:  There are SO MANY reasons to march today. Stand with: women, dreamers, transgender people, scientists, public schools and public libraries, national parks, reproductive justice, disabled people... Basically, if you have any empathy and care for your fellow human beings, join the @womensmarch. • Unfortunately I have to work, but I’m there in spirit. • I haven’t had time to create new art, but this #illustration is still appropriate. • #signofresistance #womensmarch #womenwhodraw #womenwithpencils #womensrights #togetherwerise #feministart #womenofillustration #dianatoledano #reproductiverights #plannedparenthood Happy weekend!
