Visualizing the Women’s March with Legos

 

The series of women’s marches that exploded into being the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration were an overwhelming display of civic protest. Comprehending the numbers of people who protested is difficult to understand just by the numbers.

That’s where Legos come in.

Understanding how many people actually showed up to the women’s marches is an intimidating prospect, as photographs only tell so much. Comparing the women’s march protest numbers, compiled by Professor Jeremy Pressman of the University of Connecticut and Professor Erica Chenoweth of the University of Denver, to the numbers of Hillary Clinton votes in each city’s county illustrates civic engagement in each city after the inauguration.
