Jennifer Lawrence teamed up with Adele and Cameron Diaz to protest at the Women's March

Yesterday, tens of thousands of people took to the streets across more than 250 cities in the USA to protest the inequality of women and other minority genders. Huge rallies in Washington DC, New York, and Chicago involved organized speakers and events to discuss the matters brought to light by the Time's Up campaign; and, in LA, Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, and Scarlett Johansson were amongst dozens of celebrities who addressed the crowds.

However, not all of the famous faces taking part in the march were up on stage.

In a post on Instagram, British singer Adele expressed her support for "all the women in [her] life," and added a picture of herself with Jennifer Lawrence and Cameron Diaz. All three appear to be holding handmade placards, and look ready to take on the crowds.

They weren't the only badass famous women to take part, though.

Drew Barrymore also rocked up to show her support, and posted a video with an emotional message about why the march mattered to her, personally. “I am here in the march and today I march for women,” said the 50 First Dates actress. “I have two daughters and its emotional to be in these places and in this time in the world and all I can say is do it for her and fight, fight like a girl.”

Model and actress, Christie Brinkley, also made her way through the march as part of the crowd, and brought her daughter along with her.

“Today we March for LOVE! Equality! Human Rights! For every person and our environment to be treated with respect and LOVE! It’s all about respect and love!” she wrote on Instagram.

This is the second year of marches, and were deliberately held on the anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration.

Many people turned up to the protests last year wearing pink cat ear hats - a reference to the president's "grab them by the p***y" remarks. Since then, Trump's misogyny has become even more startling, with growing allegations of sexual assault piling up against him, and a recent revelation that he cheated on Melania Trump with a porn star after the first lady had just given birth to the couple's son, Barron.

Trump, however, did his best to ignore the fact that the protests were started because of him, and tweeted to express his support for those taking part in the marches. Well, it appeared that way at first.

In reality, he tried to re-brand the march as one that was in support of the economic success of the last 12 months. He also included a not-so-subtle dig about female employment rates in the US, as if that is supposed to make up for the blatant sexism which is still rife in the states and the ongoing female inequality that continues to exist worldwide.

Understandably, many people were quick to point out his hypocrisy.

If Trump really wants to make it look like he cares about his citizens, he should take a leaf out of the books of all the people - famous or not - who took time out of their days to show their dedication to one another.
