AceShowbiz - Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry and Amy Schumer are going to participate in a planned protest to follow Donald Trump's presidential inauguration. They will join other Hillary Clinton-supporting celebrities that are participating in the Woman's March demonstration in Washington D.C. on January 21.
According to The Associated Press, Johansson will "make my voice heard and stand up for what I believe in." The "Captain America: Civil War" actress says the president-elect and his administration have been "attacking" women's reproductive rights with their opposition to funding Planned Parenthood.
America Ferrera has been selected to chair the march's "artist table," confirm organizers. "Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard," the 32-year-old actress says in a statement. "As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities."
Comedienne Chelsea Handler, who promised to flee the country if Trump won the presidential race before, will lead a solidarity march in Park City in Utah which is one of more than 150 solidarity marches planned that day, organizers say.
"I'm honored to join the Women's March on Washington Artist Table," the comedienne says. "By hosting a sister march in Park City, our Women's March on Main will help send a message to the incoming administration that attacks on Planned Parenthood and our fundamental human rights are unacceptable and if we have to re-fight for rights we have already fought for and won, we will do it louder and stronger, with men by our side."
Julianne Moore and Jessica Chastain have confirmed that they will be pounding the pavement for the demonstration that will be held just a day after Trump's presidential inauguration. Also participating in the Washington march are famous names like Cher and Debra Messing as well as young actress Zendaya Coleman.
