Millions of people all over the world joined forces this past weekend in the worldwide Women's March on Washington. Attendees gathered in support of women's rights, protesting against important issues such as healthcare cuts, discrimination and Donald Trump.
A number of celebrities showed their support for the movement by either marching or posting on social media. Among those was Mark Hamill, who'd noticed a large amount of #StarWars fans amongst the protesters:

It seems like the legendary #CarrieFisher has posthumously continued her noble work as rebel leader, becoming an icon in the modern women's rights movement. And it's certainly a fitting image, considering Fisher's strong stance against Donald Trump:
Fisher was incredibly outspoken on social media during the election last year, frequently posting snarky quips about her least-favorite presidential candidate, who she once referred to as a "UFO- unbearably freaky ogre".
In fact, upon being asked by one of her Twitter followers if she thought Trump might be a "coke head", the actor replied, "I'm an expert & ABSOLUTELY".
Looks like Fisher was equally as sassy both on-screen and off:

Star Wars' strong message of political dissidence and defiance have made for an apt theme following Trump's presidential win. Check out some of these Fisher fans representing the spirit of Leia during the Women's March:
