The Women’s March is set to take place on January 21, the day after President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated and women, men, and celebrities all over the world will be walking in sister marches.
There’s already 170,000 people signed up to march at the main rally in Washington DC this Saturday, AKA the day after Donald Trump‘s inauguration, and people from all over the world are set to join in sister marches around the world to show solidarity for the cause.
The women’s march is to support women’s rights, and according to the official Facebook page, it’s meant to ‘send a bold message to the new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights.’
And, it seems that it’s not just American women who are stepping forward, but women – and men – from all over the globe, and British celebrities have stepped forward to show their support of the London’s Women’s March, too. In fact, more celebrities seem to be planning to attend the march than they are set to attend the US Presidential inauguration. And, there’s also a strong set of Irish women fighting for women’s rights, as well.
Loads of impressive names, like Rebecca Lenkiewicz (the first living playwright to have a play on the main stage of The National Theatre with ‘Her Naked Skin’ about the Suffragettes), Citadel author Kate Mosse, environmentalist Naomi Klein and poet Eileen Myles have already expressed their support across social media – and they’re not the only ones…
The comedian retweeted the below Tweets in solidarity…
The Catastrophe actor has been a huge supporter for the cause.
Join Team Marie Claire on Saturday 21st as we march for our rights and the rights of women around the world in the face of such adversity.
