THE FIRST EVER WOMENS MARCH WILL MAKE YOU PROUD TO BE A MILLENNIAL

22.1.17

This weekend, hundreds of thousands of men and women took to the streets in Washington D.C. and other cities around the world to send an emphatic message to President Trump that his stand on issues such as abortion, health care, gay rights, diversity and climate change will not go unchallenged over the next four years.

The message reverberated around the world at more than 600 “sister marches” in places such as New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, Paris, Berlin, London, Sydney and Auckland.

Famous faces who attended #womensmarches around the world today included Scarlett Johannson, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Jessica Biel, Pink, Rooney Mara, John Legend, Elizabeth Olsen, Julianne Moore, Katy Perry, Chelsea Handler, Jessica Chastain, Suki Waterhouse, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chance The Rapper, Emma Watson, Jennifer Aniston, Zendaya, Jane Fonda and Miley Cyrus.

But it wasn’t the stars who made this event so incredibly special, it was the boys and girls just like us. The millennials who felt compelled to march in solidarity because they believe that their safety and their freedoms are on the chopping block. They believe that if we do not stand together, march together and fight together for the next four years, then we will lose together.

. We are not the negative stereotypes that are so often handed to us. We are who we choose to be.

And, more often than not, we choose kindness.
