Cynthia Nixon says she’s “scared for her daughter” under a Donald Trump government.
The “Sex and The City” actress celebrated International Women’s Day by attending a benefit for Afghan Hands, which supports careers for women in Kabul.
But Nixon, who has joined protests against President Trump, said: “Being a female . . . I do feel added pressure. Because I feel like when you have a benevolent presence in the White House, it is one thing, and you take a lot of stuff for granted. But when you have Donald Trump in the White House, you have no choice but to step up.”
She added, “I am not just afraid for my daughter’s future, I am afraid for us all. I am not afraid [what will happen] four years from now, I am scared for next month.”
But Nixon further said at the Gabriel & Co. event that there’s an “upside” to the new administration. “People are really coming out . . . all around the world,” she said. “It is amazing and very inspiring. You wouldn’t think it would matter, but it matters what we see people doing, saying and protesting on TV.”
