Beyoncé And St. Vincent Endorse Women's March On Washington Like True Queens
A plan has been made, for all humans and not just women, to take a public stand in favour of good values — those concerning women, LGBTQ and immigrant rights. Named Women's March on Washington, the demonstration takes place the day after Trump's inauguration on the National Mall… and apparently stretches to over 57 different countries who're holding over 600 sister-marches. Incred!
Janelle Monae, Maxwell and Angelique Kidjo are set to perform, and organisers are saying Questlove and Grimes are joining the march's "artist table" while speakers include Ilyasah Shabazz (Malcolm X's daughter), Scarlett Johansson, Maryum Ali, (Muhammad Ali's daughter), Gloria Steinem, and the mothers of Eric Garner, Jordan Davis, Dontre Hamilton and Trayvon Martin.
With such a pleasing set of names attached, it's little wonder that other legends are publicly supporting the march. Most recently it's our bae Bey, who shouted out on Facey a huge endorsement: "Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists. As #GlobalCitizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change. #WomensMarch." Yes!
Stoic angel St. Vincent also worked to spread the message, urging "Women's rights are human rights. Go to the Women's March on Washington on Saturday to make sure the new administration hears it. #WomensMarch #WhyIMarch @womensmarch" on her Instagram.
