Approaching faster than we could have even imagined, the Inauguration of the President-Elect will be happening in a few short days. As we watch more and more of our elected representatives on both sides of the aisle insist that they will not attend the proceedings in light of hacking allegations, what’s drawing more attention is Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington — a grassroots campaign that started on Facebook and has become a rallying cry for people across the country to come together not only to protest Donald Trump, but to voice support for women’s rights in light of GOP promises to dismantle the systems we have to protect us. Here are some of the celebrities we’ll expect to see this weekend in DC (and the incredible pro-women art and words they’ve shared pre-protest), which should give us inspiration to rise up in support this weekend whether we’re in DC or not.
1. Uzo Aduba: The Orange Is the New Black actress will be protesting on Saturday, and shared this pic on her Instagram account, saying, “Unity. Protection. Power. Progress. WOMEN RISE UP. Join us at the @womensmarch on Jan 21. Solidarity. Now. #WomensMarch”
2. America Ferrera: The actress shared an incredible piece of art by Elina Tuomi to voice her support and let her fans know she’ll be marching in the protest this Saturday.
3. Amy Schumer: The comedienne shared some scary statistics about crimes against women, declaring, “Women’s rights are human rights.”
4. Olivia Wilde: Wilde shared a glorious and uplifting quote by Maya Angelou to share why she’ll be marching this weekend. It’s a good reminder as to why we should all support each other.
We’re also expecting to see Chloë Grace Moretz, Jessica Chastain, Solange and many more at the big march, with other celebs expected to be at their local marches. Whether you’re able to make it to DC or not this weekend, there are sister marches happening across the country and throughout the world, making this one of the biggest protests we can think of in recent memory.
Will you be attending a march in solidarity this weekend? Tell us about it @BritandCo!
