Ok ladies, now let’s get in formation
This weekend, Team Stand was proud to have been part of global history as we joined London’s Women’s March and stood up for solidarity and against inequality.
We sang, chanted, celeb spotted, made new friends and even spoke to people on the tube. Knowing we were marching alongside 2.6 million people worldwide – all peacefully and energetically protesting against hate and oppression – was incredible.
While we’d rather the world’s most powerful person hadn’t made the misogynistic or racist comments he has – signage sure did show just how much people across the world are prepared to speak out in defiance against hate.
Here are Stand’s favourite moments from 2017’s best day yet…
And here’s our few of our favourite celebs that braved the cold to fight the cause…
