Family led Women’s March in own home with help from 4-year-old daughter’s dolls

Mark and Wendy Redfern stayed home with their 4-year-old daughter during the Women’s March on Washington, choosing instead to lead a protest out of their own home – with a little help from their daughter’s dolls.

In images the couple shared on Facebook, Wonder Woman, Tiana, Cinderella, Supergirl and Poison Ivy can be seen carrying cleverly designed signs that both protest Donald Trump’s election and remain true to the doll’s character — Cinderella, for instance, holds a sign reading: “Forget the Glass Slipper … What about the Glass Ceiling!”

“We all watched some of the news coverage and we told [our daughter] the basic idea that women were marching around the world for peace and women’s rights,” said Mark in an interview with Buzzfeed.
