Over the weekend, nearly 3 million protesters against Donald Trump made their voices heard in cities across the country . From Washington D.C. to Los Angeles, from Chicago to New York City, women and their male allies came out in hordes to preach for humans rights in the wake of Trump’s inauguration.
Many celebrities were vocal parts of the movement, including Madonna, Cher, Ashley Judd, Laverne Cox, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys. Madonna’s words were especially resonant. “The revolution starts here,” she told the crowd. “The fight for the right to be free, to be who we are, to be equal. Let’s march together through this darkness.”
Rainbow flags littered the march routes, with many signs preaching for LGBTQ rights to be upheld during this new administration. Here are some of our favorite Instagrams that we spotted over the weekend.

Today I marched for my cause. For my LGBT friends, family, neighbors, classmates, and everyone that is unable to have a voice. I’m so proud to be a gay woman, and from my experience today I can truly say that LOVE TRUMPS HATE ?️??️?

Today I spoke at the #womensmarch in Washington DC. ✊? Here’s some text to my speech: Our approach to freedom need not be identical but it must be intersectional and inclusive. It must extend beyond ourselves. I know with surpassing certainty that my liberation is directly linked to the liberation of the undocumented trans Latina yearning for refuge. The disabled student seeking unequivocal access. The sex worker fighting to make her living safely. Collective liberation and solidarity is difficult work. It is work that will find us struggling together and struggling with one another. Just because we are oppressed does not mean that we do not ourselves fall victim to enacting the same unconscionable policing, shaming, and erasing. We must return to one another with greater accountability and commitment to the work today. By being here you are making a commitment to this work. Together we are creating a resounding statement, a statement that stakes a claim on our lives and our loves, our bodies and our babies, our identities and our ideals. But a movement – a movement is so much more than a march. A movement is that difficult space between our reality and our vision. Our liberation depends on all of us, all of us returning to our homes and using this experience and all the experiences that have shaped us to act, to organize, to resist. #girlslikeus #feminist #iresist
So wet @womensmarch love and honor all the incredible women in our lives
