A number of stars are slated to take the stage at this year’s Women’s March in Los Angeles on Saturday. The date will mark President Trump’s first year in office, and will serve as a commemoration of the first Women’s March last year.
Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Eva Longoria, and Mila Kunis are among the top-name actresses scheduled to speak, Page Six reports. They will be joined by Viola Davis, Laverne Cox, Paris Jackson, Adam Scott, and director Rob Reiner, among others.
Scarlett Johansson, who spoke at the 2017 Women’s March, will return this year. Catt Saddler, the longtime E! anchor who recently left the network after learning co-host Jason Kennedy had a higher salary, will also participate.
In addition to the speakers, the event will feature musical numbers by Idina Menzel, Andra Day, Maxwell, and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles.
The lineup at the original Women’s March included America Ferrera, Katy Perry, Cher, and Madonna–who stirred controversy by saying she often thought of “blowing up the White House.”
Actress Ashley Judd electrified the crowd of feminists and liberals with an anti-Trump poem, which included a line that the president has “wet dreams” about his daughter, Ivanka.
Approximately 750,000 people attended last year’s Women’s March, many of them wearing pink “pussy hats.” Saturday’s event will place an additional emphasis on the upcoming 2018 midterms, with voter registration being offered on-site.
Women’s March describes its mission as being to “to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.” Its declared causes include “reproductive rights,” “LGBTQIA rights,” and “immigrant rights.”
The event is also seen as a protest against the Trump presidency. Last year, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore took the stage and ripped up a copy of the Washington Post that described President Trump’s inauguration speech.
Thanks to the Trump-supported GOP tax cuts, American companies are giving their employees bonuses and raises.
And to think, left-wing celebrities still haven’t figured out why mainstream America doesn’t like them.
