    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’.

    Ariana Grande

    today filled my heart with so much hope !! got to meet many beautiful, passionate people and march alongside my loved ones. the sun came out for us. we are so much stronger and louder than hatred, ignorance, sexism, racism, agism, homophobia, transphobia, body shaming, slut shaming, prejudice, discrimination of all kinds, patriarchal conditioning and the backwards expectations of what a woman should be! I'm so proud of / inspired by everyone who marched today and thankful that there are so many people on this planet currently celebrating how brilliant and magical women truly are! let's keep our voices loud, passionate & peaceful! let's continue being strong for each other and to build each other up! let us stay connected to our divinity. ?♡?

    Ashley Benson

    We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls: ‘You can have ambition but not too much. You should aim to be successful but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors, not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are. Feminist: a person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes. – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
