Rihanna attends Women’s March, dabs in front of Trump Tower

Grimes, Miley Cyrus, and Yoko Ono were also spotted at the weekend’s protests

This weekend, hundreds of thousands of people from across the world took to the streets for a Women’s March. The demonstrations, which took place in around 616 cities, were a reaction to the sexism that has been sweeping through modern politics in recent months. Although not officially against Donald Trump, the marches were staged a day after his inauguration, and ended up being taken over by people who were angry about his misogynistic campaign and backward approach to women’s rights. 

The main march took place on Washington D.C’s National Mall, with an estimated 500,000 in attendance (nearly double the amount of people who turned up for the previous day’s inauguration). Embarrassingly, while Trump struggled to secure celebrities and artists to perform at his swearing in, the feminist demonstration had the opposite problem. Alicia Keys, Lena Dunham and Madonna were all spotted in Washington campaigning against the Republican, with Janelle Monae and Maxwell performing at the D.C event. 

The sister protests that took place across the other U.S cities also drew in some impressive names. Grimes was spotted patrolling Portland, Miley Cyrus was seen in LA, and Yoko Ono was marching in New York. Rihanna, who was a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton, was also captured dabbing outside Manhattan’s Trump Tower. “So proud to be a woman!!” she wrote on Instagram just after the march. “So proud of the women around the world who came together today for pro-choice!”
