Hundreds of thousands of women joined together to protest President Donald Trump, and it included some of music's most influential female musicians.
More people showed up to the Women's March at the Capitol on Saturday than Trump's inauguration the day before. Artists including Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Cher, Madonna, Zendaya, Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony, Janelle Monae and others participated in the marches. CNN has photos of the crowds attending the inauguration versus the Women's March in D.C., and it's evident more are opposed to the newly-elected leader than for him.
Washington, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix, St. Paul, Minn; and many other cities around the country (and globe) partook in the organized opposition. Below is a roundup of women in music who are standing up to protect the rights and freedoms all people deserve (Bernie Sanders is in the mix too, because we <3 Bernie).
Thanks for standing, speaking & marching for our values @womensmarch. Important as ever. I truly believe we're always Stronger Together.

President Trump, you made a big mistake. By trying to divide us up by race, religion, gender and nationality you actually brought us closer. pic.twitter.com/U7deCCTFx9

Marching with SO many sisters today but my heart is most proud to march with my blood sister, Angela, who has always been my guardian angel. We should all be guardians for each other. I march today because I am not afraid anymore and I hope I can be an example of fearlessness and resilience. I will not let anyone suppress me, silence me or clip my wings. For a long time I misunderstood the true definition of being a feminist, but now that I know, I am empowered! I am indisputably a feminist. I am here today to break the cycle of suppression and inequality. I stand with you all! ❤#whyimarch @womensmarch
"An injustice done to my fellow sister is an injustice done to me." Today my thoughts are with the @womensmarch. The rhetoric of the election deeply hurt me and the people I love. On January 21 (tomm) I’ll be at the Women’s March as a woman and American (not artist) along with @Jidenna @stbeautyband and more marching in Washington making sure our voices are heard. I have always believed that, "Silence is our enemy. Sound is our weapon." #WhyIMarch #WomensMarch
Today... we march for our rights. Not just as women, but as human beings. We are entitled to equal rights like GENDER EQUALITY, EDUCATION, EQUAL PAY, REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS, FREEDOM FROM SEXUAL ASSAULTS... and the list goes on. Do it for your mother, your daughter, your little sister, your best friends because womens rights are human rights.
