Social media was abuzz following her speech with many supporting her remarks. The first march held a year ago took place in cities around the world the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration.

"Beautiful weather all over our great country, a ideal day for all Women to March", he wrote.

Crowds in the North Carolina city of Charlotte heard an address from its first black female mayor, while Washington protestors rallied at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial and marched to the White House, speaking out on a raft of issues ranging from immigrant protections to racial equality to sexual assault.

The Palestinian American Women's Association cited in a post on Facebook Johansson's "unapologetic support of illegal settlements in the West Bank, a human rights violation recognized by the global community whose calls only led to a reaffirmation of her position, sending a clear message that Palestinian voices and human rights for Palestinians do not matter". "We must take responsibility not just for our actions, but for ourselves".

Scarlett Johansson spoke about what #MeToo means to her, and why she believes it matters.

"It is very simply the ability to empathize with the visceral realities of this condition".


I want my pin back, by the way.

"I want to show my face and tell my story", Farrow told "CBS This Morning" last week.

Franco faced major backlash following a Golden Globes appearance in which he wore a pin from Time's Up, later prompting five women to speak out about inappropriate behavior they had witnessed from the seasoned actor over the years.

She started her speech by thanking the women who helped organize the march and the Time's Up movement before explaining that the reckoning taking place in Hollywood has made her step back and think: "How could a person publicly stand by an organization that helps to provide support for victims of sexual assault while privately preying on people who have no power?" She also added that she's still working on forgiving herself, describing her younger self as "heartbroken and confused". "And that men would feel entitled to discuss and objectify my body, to my great discomfort".

This included film critics, who felt it appropriate to talk about her "budding breasts" while discussing her film.
