10 Female Celebrities Who ~Supported~ the Women’s March, But Didn’t Go

By  | 

The Women’s March was something to behold. In Washington, D.C. alone, nearly half a million marchers descended upon the nation’s capital — that’s three times more people than the amount at Donald Trump‘s inauguration! (Those aren’t “alternative facts,” folks — look it all up.) And that’s only a fraction of the amount of humans that participated in the event. Across the world, nearly three MILLION people took to the streets, united in the name of women’s rights. One person who wasn’t here for it? Our new president, Donald Trump:

Umm… “these people” did vote. (Remember, Trump lost the popular vote by roughly three million, so…) And the celebs who supposedly “hurt the cause” are still fighting the good fight, making their voices heard during the Women’s March on January 21. Female celebrities, including, but not limited to, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Shailene Woodley, Rowan Blanchard, Chloe Grace Moretz, Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Emma Watson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Blake Lively, walked alongside their fellow supporters, doing the nation an incredible service.

HOWEVER, due to varying circumstances, some famous sistahs couldn’t attend. Some had work, others… well, who knows? But at least they vocalized their support on social media:

1. Taylor Swift — The singer was originally hit with a ton of backlash for not attending one of the marches, and not voicing her support. It wasn’t until after fans berated her with comments about how she says she’s a feminist only when it fits her agenda that she wrote the following:

2. Gigi Hadid

Though, not everyone was pleased with Gigi’s words of support:

3. Kendall Jenner

169 years ago a woman named Elizabeth Cady Stanton asked some of her female friends (and some women she didn't know, she advertised the meeting in the local paper) to join her for tea to discuss "women's rights in America," their conversation in Seneca Falls was one of the first of its kind in the country and it sparked a revolution. After all America had fought hard for its independence and for its citizens to have their rights, but these rights were only being extended to a portion of its inhabitants, white males. What about the women? What about their right to vote, own land, get an education and have their INTERESTS REPRESENTED BY THEIR GOVERNMENT. From the suffragettes to the civil rights movement, and still today we march. Still today we must be vigilant and demand to be taken seriously. To be heard. To be recognized. To the women and men around the world who marched (because this is not only an American issue but a global one): thank you. I am with you in spirit. WOMEN'S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS. #powertothepeople ??????????
