Protest Chants From The Women's March On Washington & From Sister Marches (January 21, 2017) (2022)

Edited by Azizi Powell

This pancocojams post provides a compilation of some protest chants that were heard at the Women's March On Washington and/or at sister marches and rallies that were held that same day (January 21, 2017).

If you attended one of these marches or rallies or if you've read about or watched videos/news reports of these marches/rallies, please add to this compilation for the historical record.

I'm particularly interested in documenting chants from sister marches/rallies outside of the United States as I have no examples of those chants.

The Addendum to this post showcases several additional videos of the Women's March On Washington & sister marches throughout the world.

The content of this post is presented for historical, cultural, folkloric, and political purposes.

Thanks to all those who organized and attended these women's marches/rallies. Thanks to all those who are quoted in this post and thanks to the publishers of these featured videos.

Note that I used the tag "African American protest chants" to refer to the 1960s civil rights protests and don't mean to imply that only African Americans used those chants then or now.

..."Alicia Keys revved up the crowd shortly before 2 p.m., leading marchers in a chant of “feet on the ground, not backing down” and singing a few lines from her hit “This Girl Is On Fire.”...

Later, Madonna energetically addressed the crowd, exclaiming, “welcome to the revolution of love! To the rebellion. To our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny.”

“The revolution starts here,” she also said.

“My question to you today is, Are you ready?” she continued. “I said, Are you ready? Say, Yes, we’re ready!

....One crowd of marchers making their way across the Potomac River from Virginia chanted and sang as they walked: “All I want to say is Trump don’t care about us. All I want to say is Trump don’t care about us.”...

Other marchers chanted in sing-song: “Hands too small, can’t build a wall.”"

"Hands too small" refers to the meme that Donald Trump's hands are very small in proportion to his body. "The wall" refers to the proposed wall between the USA and Mexico that Trump has pledged to have built and -eventually- paid for by the Mexican government.

An estimated 5,000 people sing, chant, demonstrate at Baltimore's sister Women's March by Lorraine Mirabella
..."We are the ones who make change happen," organizer and retired pastor Donna Martin yelled into a megaphone, fighting to be heard as part of the crowd sang "We Shall Overcome."* "We are here to say that we are not going back. We are here to say that we want a kinder, gentler functioning government."...

Terrace Brooks, a 15-year-old sophomore from Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts, came to the demonstration with his mother and then felt compelled to take a turn at the megaphone, leading chants of "Immigrants are welcome here. No hate. No fear."."..

*"We Shall Overcome" is considered to be the anthem of the 1960s United States civil rights movement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rp1FyjB8WXQ&t=9094s Women's March on Washington 2017 (FULL EVENT) | ABC News (towards the end of that live stream) includes an adapted version of that song that was sung by some protesters at the Women's Washington March included a verse about Donald Trump. The transcription of that song is included in the pancocojams companion post about the Women's marches whose link is given above.

Also, certain other videos of these marches document "We Shall Overcome-and not any other civil rights song- being sung by January 21, 2017 Women's march protestors.

**I wonder if that chant actually begins with the "No hate. No fear". Those words beginning the chant would fit the protest chant pattern better than the longer words beginning the chant. Also, note the similar chant given in Source #5.

We went up to the Ellipse, where there was small fence (with openings) creating a barrier between it and the Mall, and a fairly large crowd. We hung out by the fence and watched the marchers come in, did some more chanting. “Whose House, Our House,” “This is What Democracy Looks Like.” We went inside the fence and decided to get up closer to the White House before it got more crowded.

After chanting a bit more, we decided happily to call it a day and head to Union Station to get dinner.

But leaving the march might have been the best part. As we were walking down the street, a man was chanting, Her Body, Her Choice, and then all the women would chant back, My Body, My Choice. It was the most moving part of the event for me."...
