Emotional, powerful and monumental are just three words to describe this past weekend’s global Women’s March.
Millions of women gathered around the world to march for women’s rights, human rights and to let their voices be heard. Dozens of celebrities even attended marches in their respective cities and hundreds more took to social media in solidarity.
HipHollywood caught up with a few women in Hollywood to talk about why the march was not only life changing, but imperative. “It really moved me to write and I’m excited for what’s to come,” Kelly Rowland told us wile on the red carpet for Lifetime’s Love By The 10th Date premiere. “We are demanding to be heard. You are going to hear us.”
Actress and comedian Niecy Nash explained that Saturday’s event was “beautiful.” Nash also suggested, “It just goes to show you what we can do when we come together. So many TV shows showing women being divisive and catty and mean towards each other. But when you come together for a common goal … my God.”
Meagan Good, who stars alongside Rowland in the upcoming Lifetime movie, said we need “more of that.” She told us, “We need more support of each other, more of us that are like minded coming together, fighting back. We need each other. It’s an important time.”
