Instagram photos don't get more empowering than these...
Saturday 21st January saw the biggest international march in history as millions of women, men and children took to the streets across the globe in protest.
President Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration was the catalyst, with most people marching against his anti-female policies but protestors covered all manner of issues, everything from Brexit worries to women’s reproductive rights.
Over three million people took part across the world, with 100,000 people descending on London, sporting pussy hats and hilarious homemade banners as they marched from Grosnevor Square to Trafalgar Square.
With inspirational speakers from Gloria Steinem to Madonna and a performance in Washington by Alicia Keys, the worldwide marches weren’t short of A-Listers – in fact, the list of celebrity attendees was so long it could rival any award show guest list.
Even those who weren’t able to make the march posted their support and pride in their ‘sisters’ to their Instagram and Twitter feeds.
Ellie Goulding posted an Instagram snap with the caption ‘The pride I feel today is unreal. And this is only the beginning. Huge respect… Wish I could have been there with you all x’.
Victoria Beckham also took to the app to post a picture of herself and Harper watching from a balcony, writing: ‘Proud to support women everywhere today #womensupportingwomen #womensmarchlondon x VB’.
The empowering day was made even more powerful by the amount of high profile people speaking up and encouraging others to do so too.
Here are some of the celebrities who marched and posted it with pride on social media…
