Beyoncé Shares An Inspiring Message Ahead Of The Women's March On Washington

"We raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists."

Beyoncé is known for her many feminist rallying cries in songs such as "Run the World (Girls)" and "Formation," and this week she shared yet another empowering message on her Facebook page in support of this Saturday's Women's March on Washington. 

The march, which takes place a day after Donald Trump's inauguration as president, will see hundreds of thousands of people making their voices heard with the message that "women's rights are human rights." Outside of D.C., hundreds of sister marches will take place on the same day in cities around the world.

"Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists," Beyoncé wrote on Facebook, along with a poster for the event. "As #GlobalCitizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change."

Chime for Change and Global Citizen are charitable organizations with which Beyoncé has been involved over the past few years, as the singer remains an outspoken voice for political activism. Her music and performances regularly address issues such as police brutality and women's empowerment, and last year she urged young people to get out and vote

Although Beyoncé has lent her support to the Women's March, it's unclear whether she will actually be in attendance. She does, however, love a surprise performance, so we'll be looking out for her.

Ahead of the march, many participants have been expressing themselves through artwork, including signs and posters to be displayed during the event. At the same time, several other public figures are also lending their support, including 9-year-old Amariyanna "Mari" Copeny, better known as Little Miss Flint. Celebrities such as Katy Perry, Amy Schumer, and America Ferrera will also be in attendance.

We're looking forward to witnessing this historic display of activism when it takes place this Saturday, January 21, beginning at 10 a.m.
