Women’s March Returns With Rousing Speeches, Righteous Posters, Celeb Cameos

Featured, Politics  

The second annual Women’s March produced a number of memorable moments — and signs! Some of our favorites:

“I’ve seen better Cabinets at IKEA!”

“This is my resisting bitch face.”

“Super Callous Fragile Racist Sexist Not My Potus”

“Anything you can do, I can do bleeding”

“Tide pods for Trump”

… And the universal and elegant “My mom is pissed!!”

As this year’s themes were resilience and empowerment — a natural evolution of last year’s themes of resistance and anger — many celebrities came out to lend their voices to the march’s inspirational message of change.

In addition to the usual freedom fighters (Alyssa Milano, Ashley Judd), there was our very own Cher imploring women to vote in the upcoming 2018 midterms. She even opened up about her own experiences with sexism as a young girl (which we will hopefully learn more about in the upcoming Cher musical!)

After describing herself as young and carefree as a young girl, she continued, “I got married, and I lost of a lot of my power through marriage. It was really my fault, but I was young.” She added, “It took me a long, long time to get back the power that you see that I have.”

There was also Grand Dame Adele, who posted a picture of herself hanging out with Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lawrence of all people. (This doesn’t make sense at first, but then it makes a LOT of sense after you think about it.)

“The most influential people in my life have always been women. My family, my friends, my teachers, my colleagues, and my idols,” she wrote on Instagram. “I want what’s best for people, I think we all do. We just can’t agree on what that is. Power to the peaceful, power to the people.”

And then, presumably, Adele, Cameron and Jennifer combined their Power Rings to create Captain Feminist, who soared into the heavens and smote all her enemies with her Powers of Wokeness. And then they got fries or whatever. Hello?
