Hundreds of thousands of people marched in Washington DC this weekend to promote women's rights and equality, contesting the overtly misogynist attitude of the new American president, Donald Trump. They were joined by many more in the US and across the world, with Vox estimating the turnout in the US alone to be 3.3 million people — possibly the biggest protest in American history.
Celebrities also ignored their usual fear of crowds to join the marchers, from Miley Cyrus to Kristen Stewart and Scarlett Johansson. While some used the opportunity to make speeches or give a performance to the enormous crowds in attendance, others were simply happy to share the good news of the incredible turnout.
Meanwhile, many who couldn't attend still took to social media to share their support for the cause with their millions of followers.
