On Saturday, an estimated 2.9 million people all across America banded together for the Women's March. The march was filled with loud but peaceful protest in which many people—including some of our favorite artists—spoke out against the current threats to women's rights and human rights.
We’ve put together a gallery of some of the very strong and brave female artists who dedicated their time to peacefully marching in conjunction with many of the marchers in America. From Rihanna to Demi Lovato to Katy Perry, women of all walks of life came together to continue to fight for equality and equal representation in this new era of America. With millions of people, a lot of celebrities, and even more support from those who were unable to be there from around the world the march could very much be deemed a success.
The protest had no arrests or reported acts of violence throughout its duration, and is currently the largest protest to ever be seen in American history. America wasn’t the only country celebrating the protest as women in India, London, Kenya, Paris, Belgrade, South Africa, Melbourne, Peru, Macau and more marched in solidarity with the women of the United States. We're extremely grateful for all of our vocal artists and friends who braved the cold, stood together and began a movement.
We are also extremely grateful Nick Offerman aka Ron Swanson exists to remind us all that there are many men who stand in solidarity with women.
And how can we forget that Sir Ian McKellan managed to include his good friend Sir Patrick Stewart in the most perfect fashion at the London March across the pond.
Thank you to all the women and men who marched and stood together on Saturday January 21, 2017. Women's rights and feminsim remains a global movement and we are honored to have seen artists on the front lines.
