Celebrities including Katy Perry, Amy Schumer and Charlize Theron took to social media to share their women's march stories on Saturday.

Katy Perry, who marched in Washington D.C., posted a childhood photo of she and her sister Angela and wrote an emotional message to her 60 million followers.

"Marching with SO many sisters today but my heart is most proud to march with my blood sister, Angela, who has always been my guardian angel," she wrote.

"We should all be guardians for each other. I march today because I am not afraid anymore and I hope I can be an example of fearlessness and resilience. I will not let anyone suppress me, silence me or clip my wings."

She finished her long post with a rallying cry: “I am here today to break the cycle of suppression and inequality. I stand with you all! #whyimarch.”
