The “Million Women’s March” was held on January 21st 2017, where women and anyone else who supports women’s rights were invited to gather at the Lincoln Memorial, DC and march together to the White House. This was a protest against the president elect of Donald Trump, keeping in mind the sexist and racist remarks, he made during his presidential campaign. Several celebrities were a part of this march, here are some pictures.
BLAKE LIVELY – The Gossip Girl star was spotted at the march.
I marched for my daughters, for my friends, for strangers, for myself, for Phoebe here in this picture who I met as she motivated everyone she came across. My march wasn't driven by hate. It was rooted in a very simple fact– we are all equal. I believe everyone can agree on that. Thank you to everyone who marched all over the world. I felt so hopeful and deeply grateful. #whyimarch
