I have been a feminist for many years.
I am not a feminist who is only for women,” tweeted actress Ashley Judd.

The Women’s March on Washington was held on January 21, 2017, the same day President Donald Trump was inaugurated.
Many other celebrities and organizations are also using the hashtag to call out the political and social problems facing the United States.
But the #MenAndWomen hashtag has taken on a life of its own.
This week, the hashtag #MenOnTheMoon began trending, and more celebrities and other groups are also signing on to the cause.
“It’s about time that we talk about the issues of women in the world, including our own,” tweeted actor Tom Hanks.

This trend is not limited to celebrities.
