One year after Trump’s very small, very limp, impotently-attended inaugural address, protesters once again took to the streets en masse as part of the nationwide women’s march that remains the largest, mainstream resistance protest in response to Trump’s election.
And while the protests are steeped in the annals of history, Rutgers wants to make sure women’s march iconography doesn’t dissolve into the ether.
The Rutgers University Special Collections and University Archives is asking any New Jersey residents who participated in the protests Saturday to consider donating their posters to collection.
According to its website, The Women’s March Archives Project is collecting these materials to document these historic events for future scholars and students.
“Last year, we collected signs, buttons, pamphlets, newspapers, stickers, and one embroidered goose patch from Women’s March participants. The Women’s March Archives Project is collecting these materials to document these historic events for future scholars and students.”
So make sure your iconography doesn’t end up in the recycling bin of history. Preserve it for future generations to explore. Here’s how.
