Women's March: How Hollywood Documented the Demonstrations on Social Media

Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, Ana Navarro and Michael Moore were among the stars who took to Twitter to share how they were participating in the D.C. protests.

The day after Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, hundreds of thousands of women (and men) took to the streets in Washington, D.C., and at sister marches across the country and abroad to declare their support for women's rights.

Numerous Hollywood stars were among those participating in the demonstrations, documenting their experiences at the march in D.C. and elsewhere on social media.

America Ferrera was one of the first people to address the crowd at the D.C. march, speaking out against Trump, who she said was "waging a war."

"The president is not America," added the actress. "We are America, and we are here to stay."

By early Saturday morning, as the march was just beginning, city officials said organizers of the March on Washington had more than doubled their turnout estimate to 500,000, as numerous tweets and photos indicated that the subways were overflowing with participants.

Stars who indicated they were participating in the D.C. march included Michael Moore, Janelle Monae, Scarlett Johansson, Debra Messing, Ashley Judd, Patricia Arquette, Padma Lakshmi, Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Zendaya, Amber Tamblyn, Katy Perry, Olivia Wilde, Jessica Chastain and Julianne Moore.

On Saturday, Dunham, Perry, Moore, Zendaya and Ana Navarro were among those sharing their experience at the D.C. march on social media. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, whose name earned cheers when cited by speaker Gloria Steinem, also tweeted her support for the marchers, writing, "Thanks for standing, speaking and marching for our values @womensmarch. Important as ever. I truly believe we're always Stronger Together."

Read on to see how the stars documented their experiences at the women's marches.
