All around the world this past weekend, people of all walks of life took the streets of major cities for the 2018 Women's March. In Los Angeles alone, 600,000 protestors came out to show their support – while New York City had over 200,000. But that's not all – Washington D.C., Philadelphia and many other locations were filled with women, men and even children standing up for equal rights. With the Time's Up and Me Too movements being a very popular focus this award show season, tons of celebrities have been speaking out about the need for change in today's world – as sexual assault has been swept under the rug for far too long. And so, we use our voices to inspire change.
Tons of celebrities showed up to the Women's March last year, and there were countless highlights. Shake It Up stars Zendaya and Bella Thorne finally reunited. Once famously feuding Disney Channel stars Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus had a very friendly run-in. And who could forget Girl Meets World actress Rowan Blanchard's powerful speech?
While a handful of your fave stars attended this year, some of the celebs that were spotted marching last year weren't in attendance. Camila Mendes, Miley Cyrus, Zendaya and Yara Shahidi seemed to have other things going on this time around. Miley, for one, is currently in Australia. And as for Camila, Zendaya and Yara – they were all sure to show their support on social media. Z applauded actress Viola David for her emotional speech via Twitter, while Yara shared a special moment from last year's march on Instagram. And if the Riverdale cast wasn't in the midst of filming, Cami wants fans to know she would've been marching as well.
"If we weren’t filming today, I would be marching on the streets of vancouver just as I was last year, arm in arm with my riverdale sisters ?? scream as loud as you can, ladies, we’re sending all our love and support," Camila captioned the poem she shared on Instagram.
Now, join us as we take a look at this year's celeb highlights from the inspirational day of #GirlPower rallies.
