In an unprecedented manner, celebrities and non-celebrities gathered for a global ‘solidarity’ march in the wake of the inauguration of Donald Trump as US president.
Many of the protesters arrived wearing hand-knit pink ‘p***yhats’ -a message of female empowerment aimed squarely at Trump’s demeaning comments about women.
Some women carried signs saying ‘nasty woman’ as they tried to reclaim the name that Trump gave Hillary Clinton during the final presidential debate in October.
The march attracted significant support from celebrities including Chimamanda Adichie, Katy Perry, Madonna, Scarlett Johansson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Emma Watson, Ashley Judd, Cher, America Ferrera, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Whoopi Goldberg, Cynthia Nixon, Charlotte Church, Yoko Ono, Helen Mirren, Julia Roberts, John Legend and Amy Schumer.
According to reports, over 2.2 million marched in solidarity against Trump from Paris, London, Spain, Prague, Delhi, Amsterdam, Canada, Berlin, Edinburgh, Rome, Prague, Stockholm, Athens, Copenhagen, New Delhi, Brussels, Mexico City, Barcelona, Manila, Toronto, Madrid, Geneva, Cardiff and Sydney to United States of America.
They all have one voice against the 45th President of the USA, Donald Trump, who didn’t get the mandate of about 60% of the American populace but was fortunate to get the mandate of the electoral college.
