The Women’s March on Washington is underway. Hundreds of thousands of people — men, women and children alike — gathered in the nation’s capital on Saturday morning to protest President Trump’s inauguration the day after he was officially sworn in, as well as call for equal rights for women.
Designers like Rachel Comey have expressed support for the march in the days leading up to it, and today, some even hit the streets to take part. Jennifer Fisher, Zac Posen and Comey were among those designers who used their social media platforms to share messages of encouragement.
'Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. We must create a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.' – @womensmarch Regram @vanityfair 📸by @derekblasberg #nastywomenmakehistory
Celebrities have also been vocal about the Women’s March. Earlier today, America Ferrera, Ashley Judd, Scarlett Johansson, Madonna and Alicia Keys spoke at the rally. Janelle Monae and Jidenna were among those who performed.
It’s shaping up to be quite an eventful weekend in Washington D.C.
