Female Comedians Take On The Women's March
by Katie Conway - 0




 Youd have to be living under a rock - or cowardly hiding in the White House - to not know about the historic Womens March on Washington that took place this past Saturday, along with fellow Sister Marches across the country and around the globe. The March was in reaction to the elected - now President - Donald J. Trumps misogynistic and sexist remarks towards women, as well as threats towards womens health care, immigration reform, LGBTQ rights, fair wages, racial injustice, etc. The March on Washington itself had over 500,000 attendees (almost 3x as many people that showed up to Trumps Inauguration), and an estimated 2.5 million marchers worldwide! With massive crowds like these, its no surprise when you see a celebrity or two exercising there right to protest for women everywhere. Here are a few funny females who made their voices heard on January 21, 2017.

Lauren Lapkus
Along with musical genius Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow comedian John C. Reilly! The trio met up across the pond in London, supporting womens rights an ocean away. Lapkus is best known for her role as Susan Fischer on Orange is the New Black, as well as Comedy Bang! Bang! and The Earliest Show.


Amy Schumer
Amy looked badass in her bright orange NASA suit during the March on Washington! Not only did she recently wear the suit to an interview with the amazing Neil DeGrasse Tyson, but she also wore it in support of gun control - something she has passionately advocated for after two women were shot during a screening of her film Trainwreck. Schumer also caught up with fellow feminist celebrities at The March, such as pals Madonna and Gloria Steinem.

Mindy Kaling
The Mindy Project star and The Office alumni advocated at a Sister March in Los Angeles, CA, with some awesome friends!

Fran is also a healthcare advocate who started the Cancer Schmancer Movement - an organization that aims to help women with cancer diagnosed in Stage 1.


Chelsea Handler
The Sundance Film Festival wont stop these awesome ladies from marching! On a cold and snowy evening in Park City, Utah, actress and comedian Chelsea Handler lead The Womens March on Main - with more than 8,000 participants, including Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart.
