These are the famous women and men who joined #WomensMarch 2017
On the 21st of January, Women's Marches across the world saw thousands take to the streets against Trump, against the rise of the far right, brought together by a shared fight for women's rights and futures. The March is London is believed to have been 100,000 protestors strong, and the Washington March had an estimated turnout of over 2 million. That's not counting marches in L.A, Paris, Berlin, Auckland, Dublin, Barcelona - just about every major city in the world was today faced with a thousands-strong protest led by women.
The marches have had their flaws; the rhetoric has been dominated by phrases like 'My pussy grabs back' (this heavy focus on vaginas can be exclusionary of trans women) and there's been little attention paid to causes that affect women of colour, like Trump's Islamophobia & the racial profiling of black Americans by police. On these fronts some of the marches have failed, though they seem to have motivated a huge number of newbie feminists to become more active in the feminist movement - perhaps this will be the beginning of bigger and better direct action. It certainly provides some comfort that the anti-Trump, pro-women movement has such mass mainstream support. On top of the many thousands of women that showed up, a few famous women turned out to protest too. These are just a few of the bunch!
