On January 20 and 21, 2017, thousands of people across the world joined a global protest – Women's March – to fight for those whose rights were violated for a long time. The participants of the movement advocated for policies and legislation regarding all kinds of issues: from workers' rights to healthcare and immigration reforms.

A year later, activists and supporters of the movement gathered together once again, celebrating the anniversary of the largest single-day protest in the U.S. history. Among the people marching down the streets, there were many famous and influential representatives of the entertainment industry.

America Ferrera, who was a chairwoman at the previous Women's March on Washington, shared a photo from a year ago.

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis, in her turn, shared a powerful photo of a little girl from this year's march.

“Don’t know whose brilliant picture this is,” reads the caption, “but am sharing in the spirit that the picture speaks truth to power.”

Another actress, Helen Hunt, actually joined the procession and even made a sign for the occasion.

In total, around 250 marches, rallies, and actions dedicated to the movement took place in different parts of the world.
