Hundreds of thousands of women across the US and the rest of the world today took to the streets for the 2018 Women's March.

It comes a year after the first such event was held in opposition Donald Trump's election as US president.

Like the 2017 march, participants brandished signs with their reason for demonstrating.

While many took a light-hearted stance to the issue at hand with puns and sarcasm, others made serious political messages.

Here's our selection of the most memorable signs.

A young protester made her generations' stance to "walls," likely referencing Donald Trump's campaign promises to build a wall on the US' border with Mexico.

One participant referenced the popular series show Black Mirror, which shows a dystopian version of society.

This woman added a twist to the song lyrics "Anything You Can Do" from the musical "Annie Get Your Gun" for her sign.

Two others dressed up as characters from the TV adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale, based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, in which the world is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.

A four-legged attendee wore his opposition to sexism on his collar.

One man took it upon himself to call out his gender with a sign that read "men must do better".

"Introverts" made their presence and dislike of being in large crowds known.

Jordan , 23, from Atlanta had a strong message for women who voted for Trump.

YouTube personality Lilly Singh quoted actress Emma Watson and wrote: "If you stand for equality then you're a feminist."

This protester in NYC used a pun to get her message across.
