Amy Schumer called on other women to join her in a protest march against president-elect Donald Trump.
Tuesday, the 35-year-old comedian shared a post on Instagram with her 5.5 million followers. In the post she shared a photo of the “Women’s March on Washington” poster scheduled for January 21, 2017. She captioned the photo, “January 21 I’ll be there. Who’s coming with me? Thanks for posting @bust_magazine and @amberrosetamblyn.”

Even though the event’s website doesn’t name Trump specifically it does reference the “rhetoric” of the election and the message they want to send to the “new administration.”
“The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us– immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault–and our communities are hurting and scared,” the statement on the website reads. “We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.”
