Founded in the United States following the election of Donald Trump, on January 21, 2017, people took to the streets to protest against his regressive political agendas threatening women’s rights. An estimated five million people marched worldwide that first year.
Spreading to Australia, the march is now in its third year. The 2019 installment focused on bringing awareness to violence against women in light of the recent rape and murder of young Israeli student Aia Maasarwe in Melbourne.
Attracting thousands to the streets of Sydney, a few famous faces were also spotted in the crowd. Check out the Aussie celebs who showed up to support the sisterhood!
