10 Female Celebrities Who ~Supported~ the Women’s March, But Didn’t Go

by: on | in Celebrities | No Comments

The Women’s March was something to behold. In Washington, D.C. alone, nearly half a million marchers descended upon the nation’s capital — that’s three times more people than the amount at Donald Trump‘s inauguration! (Those aren’t “alternative facts,” folks — look it all up.) And that’s only a fraction of the amount of humans that participated in the event. Across the world, nearly three MILLION people took to the streets, united in the name of women’s rights. One person who wasn’t here for it? Our new president, Donald Trump:

Umm… “these people” did vote. (Remember, Trump lost the popular vote by roughly three million, so…) And the celebs who supposedly “hurt the cause” are still fighting the good fight, making their voices heard during the Women’s March on January 21. Female celebrities, including, but not limited to, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Shailene Woodley, Rowan Blanchard, Chloe Grace Moretz, Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Emma Watson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Blake Lively, walked alongside their fellow supporters, doing the nation an incredible service.

HOWEVER, due to varying circumstances, some famous sistahs couldn’t attend. Some had work, others… well, who knows? But at least they vocalized their support on social media:

1. Taylor Swift — The singer was originally hit with a ton of backlash for not attending one of the marches, and not voicing her support. It wasn’t until after fans berated her with comments about how she says she’s a feminist only when it fits her agenda that she wrote the following:

2. Gigi Hadid

Though, not everyone was pleased with Gigi’s words of support:

3. Kendall Jenner

There are moments and milestones in every movement, and when we get there, I feel as though this will be a day to remember. I've been in an instagram hole, which is pretty standard lol, but this time around i'm overwhelmed reading all the signs, watching all of the videos and am jealous I could not be there marching. Thank-you to each and every person who took the time to march today, it is amazing to see so many people supporting each other all the way from Africa! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ‘­πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸšΆπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸšΆπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸšΆπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸšΆπŸΏβ€β™€οΈβœŠπŸ½βœŠπŸ»βœŠπŸΌβœŠπŸΎβœŠπŸΏ #womensmarchinspirit

9. Troian Bellisario

169 years ago a woman named Elizabeth Cady Stanton asked some of her female friends (and some women she didn't know, she advertised the meeting in the local paper) to join her for tea to discuss "women's rights in America," their conversation in Seneca Falls was one of the first of its kind in the country and it sparked a revolution. After all America had fought hard for its independence and for its citizens to have their rights, but these rights were only being extended to a portion of its inhabitants, white males. What about the women? What about their right to vote, own land, get an education and have their INTERESTS REPRESENTED BY THEIR GOVERNMENT. From the suffragettes to the civil rights movement, and still today we march. Still today we must be vigilant and demand to be taken seriously. To be heard. To be recognized. To the women and men around the world who marched (because this is not only an American issue but a global one): thank you. I am with you in spirit. WOMEN'S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS. #powertothepeople πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΏ

10. Kate Hudson

A lot of celebrities are not fans of Taylor Swift’s version of feminism. See here:

Troian Bellisario

After the Kimye-Taylor feud broke out, Cosmopolitan asked the Pretty Little Liars star which side she's on. She said, "Oh god, I have such an aversion to the Kardashians because I literally don't understand people's obsession with them and I don't want to accept them as our closest thing to a royal family, so I guess I would be Team Taylor Swift?" Sounds promising, right? Well...

"However, I'm so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism," she continued. "It seems like she's this person who's like, 'Sisterhood!' and then she does nothing but tear down the women that were once her friends."

She ended her statement, saying, "So is it possible to just be, like… this is a two-party system that I don't want to be a part of? Can I just say that? Can I say that I would choose the Green Party in this?"

Demi Lovato

Some people praised Taylor for her $250,000 donation to help support Kesha's legal fight against the music producer who allegedly raped her; others slammed the singer for not voicing her thoughts on the matter. Demi Lovato is one of those people.

At first, her side eye was a not-so-subtle Twitter comment, saying, "Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak about something, then I'll be impressed."

But it got way worse during a later interview on the matter. "There are women that I don't get along with, and that's fine," Demi began. "My thing is, don't brand yourself a feminist if you don't do the work. I have an immense amount of respect for women like Lena Dunham... or BeyoncΓ©, who make amazing political statements through their work." And she feels like T.Swift doesn't do that.

Katy Perry

The beef between Taylor & Katy is a longstanding one β€” Tay's "Bad Blood" was even inspired by it β€” so it's no surprise that the "Roar" crooner is not a fan of Taylor's views on feminism.

In an almost indecipherable tweet, Katy said, "Finding it ironic to parade the 'pit women against other women' argument about, as one [im]measurably capitalizes on the takedown of a woman."

Yung Skeeter, who joined Katy on tour, echoed her sentiments. "Using a group of women to take shots at another women," he tweeted, followed by "let's be good to each other."

Camilla Belle

The actress, who is said to be the reason for Joe Jonas' breakup with Taylor, is definitely on Team Katy. After Katy's tweet about pitting women against other women, Camilla responded, "Couldn't have said it better."

Remember, Taylor wrote "Better Than Revenge" about how Cam stole Joe from her.

Chloe Grace Moretz

CGM is a self-professed feminist herself; one who is not for women rising above men, but about being on the same playing field. "[Feminism is] about equality," she said. "And it's not just about women being powerful. It's about races being powerful; genders being powerful."

The one thing she does not consider to be a good example of feminism is a squad. "They appropriate exclusivity," she exclaimed. "They're cliques! I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!"

When the interviewer asked her if she was aware of Taylor Swift and if she was invited into her squad, Chloe responded yes to both, but simply stated that Tay's talented and left it at that. K.

Rowan Blanchard

Another person who's not living for the #squadlife is the Girl Meets World star. "Of course female friendship is a beautiful thing," she told Just Jared, Jr. "It's insanely powerful. Sisterhood is something so valid and important when you are growing up that I literally think the essence of it should be taught in schools. But, the 'squads' we see in the media" — Taylor's being the most prominent — "are very polarizing. Feminism and friendship are supposed to be inclusive, and most of these 'squads' are strictly exclusive."

She continued, "It makes feminism look very one dimensional. Feminism is so multilayered and complex that it can be frustrating when the media and the celebrities involved in it make feminism and 'squads' feel like this very happy, exclusive, perfect thing. There's so much more than that. 'Squad goals' can polarize anyone who is not white, thin, tall and always happy."
