I was in Austin over the weekend, where I couldn't help but notice 1,500 people holding a rally for women's rights on the Capitol building's south steps. It was one of dozens of events across the country Saturday organized by Unite Women to protest legislation affecting women's health, abortion access, and equal pay.
It's debatable, of course, whether a rally is any match for conservative Texas lawmakers and their keen interest in all things uterus-related. But one thing is certain: the longer this goes on, the funnier (and filthier) the protest signs get. Here are the best and weirdest signs of the weekend.
