Following the election of Donald Trump as President on Wednesday, those who voted for Hillary Clinton reacted to the devastating blow in a variety of ways. Some immediately took to social media or donated to organizations like Planned Parenthood online, while others marched in the streets of New York City and Berkeley, California. Female creatives gathered to share ideas and express themselves visually, and many visited museums, galleries, and theaters to escape into the art world for a few hours or simply put on their headphones to tune out.
