Madonna, Demi, Alicia & More: Celebs Join in Women's Marches Around the World

As millions of people took to the streets around the world yesterday to show support for women’s rights, scores of Hollywood stars joined them. While the sheer numbers of non-celebrities marching together is incredibly powerful on its own, having actors, singers, and more join their ranks only helps to draw attention to women’s empowerment. 

In Washington, a handful of stars took the stage to address the throngs of people. Scarlett Johansson spoke about the importance of access to healthcare for women while America Ferrera spoke about immigration. CHIME FOR CHANGE Advisory Board member Madonna offered a stinging rebuke of President Trump while Ashley Judd delivered a poem called "Nasty Women."

Elsewhere, stars joined the ranks of marchers in LA, NYC, London, and Park City, Utah, where the Sundance Film Festival is happening.
