Mira Sorvino, Caitlyn Jenner, Marlee Matlin And More Rally At L.A.’s Women March

Downtown Los Angeles was taken over by thousands of people on Saturday afternoon as they took part in the fourth annual Women’s March.

The day included musical performances as well as speeches from women such as Marlee Matlin, Rosanna Arquette, Alicia Arden, Yvette Nicole Brown, Michelle Rodriguez, Raven-Symoné and Mira Sorvino.

Sorvino, one of Harvey Weinstein’s many accusers, paid credit to those who have spoken out.

“Predators who previously enjoyed immunity and the ability to hurt and destroy all people’s opportunities to work in safe and fair environments are historically being brought to justice,” Sorvino said. “Because of the bravery of hundreds of women, men and children who told the truth, the Harvey Weinsteins, Jeffrey Epsteins, Bill Cosbys, and R. Kellys are finally realizing that we as a society have stopped tolerating their predation, no matter their popularity.”

Meanwhile, Matlin got political as she spoke through a sign language translator.

“Are you ready for four more years of racism and bigotry? No! Are you ready for four more years of environmental destruction and deregulation? No! Are you ready for four more years of children in cages? No!” she said.

Caitlyn Jenner was also at the march where she told the crowd this was her first time. “Together as women, trans women and cis women, we have the power to influence our communities, our families, our friends, and colleagues, and turn this country around,” Jenner added.
