These are the celebrities that attended the 2018 Women's March

The Women's March took place over the weekend and it again had a monumental turnout. It's the second Women's March event, following the one organised last year in Washington which came about after President Donald Trump was inaugurated. Rallies were organised all across the country, and marches sprang up worldwide in cities including Munich, Osaka and Melbourne.

People came together to protest with signs in a bid to draw attention to gender inequality and other issues women face today, as well as some of Trump's more questionable policies. Particular emphasis was put on messages about sexual harassment and assault - a hot topic of late following the many sexual misconduct scandals coming out of Hollywood and the subsequent #Me Too and Time's Up movements.

Men, women, children, as well as politicians, activists and celebrities, marched together in the thousands this year. So who of the rich and famous rocked up this year to join the crowds on the streets?
