Kenyan-born Oscar-winning actress and women activist Lupita Nyong’o also took to her Instagram page ahead of the march to declare her support and participation in the anti-Trump protest. Nyong’o posted a picture of Gloria Steinem and Maya Angelou and quoted the late-author who said, “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

Nyong’o ended her post with the hastag #WhyIMarch: “Because I have decided not to be reduced by any events, social or political, that aim to rob me of my dignity.”
