The 2017 the Women’s March inspired hundreds of women to run, millions more to vote, and dozens to win elected office. The 2019 Women’s March marks two years of protests in cities and towns around the world to advocate legislation and policies regarding human rights and women's rights.
The marches were in reaction to the recently inaugurated President of the United States and his potentially harmful agenda. It was the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history. Over 5 Million humans worldwide and over 1 Million in Washington, D.C., assembled to demand equality and human rights for all.
While this event was widely covered by the media, the D.C. office of Syncro Studios wanted to showcase it in our own style and from our own perspective. Also, as anyone who attended can attest, the march presented something of a physical challenge in that there were so many people the entire march route was completely packed, making it difficult for us to weave through the crowd.
We opted not report from the sidelines—our team got into the middle of things to film and take photos of the protesters, offering a unique point of view of the march.
The Women’s March kicked off an era of sustained activism, with additional demonstrations and a record number of women running for office in the 2018 mid-term elections. As for Syncro Studios, our collection of photos of the event was our most viewed, engaged with and saved on Instagram.
Thanks for stopping by the studio journal. In the spirit of a personal diary, this is a peek inside the creative process were we share project ideation, production tips and inspiration from our travels along the way. Enjoy!
