Alyssa Milano's 2018 Women's March Speech Was Rousing and Beautiful
'We formed a movement that is unstoppable and when time comes time to vote, you're gonna prove that it's also unbeatable,' the 'Charmed' actress said.
Supported by friends like Viola Davis, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, and many more, Alyssa Milano delivered a rousing speech at the Women's March on Saturday.
On the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration, the Charmed alum reminded listeners that while the #MeToo movement is the product of years of sexual harassment gone ignored, it has also brought women together like never before — and there's nothing more powerful.
"I want you to look around and I want you to realize, that this, this right here is what democracy looks like," Milano said during the protest. "It doesn't happen automatically. It demands our action and participation. It challenges us, but it also empowers us because at the end of the day, it is us.
"With those two words," she continued, "we regained our dignity and #MeToo connected us through our pain but it also connected us —and this is very important — it connected us, each one of us, to our own power, and by saying #MeToo, we formed a bond that is unbreakable. We formed a movement that is unstoppable and when time comes time to vote, you're gonna prove that it's also unbeatable.
"Voting is how we prove that our country is so much bigger and kinder than one man that is in the White House," she said. "The good news is that in a democracy like ours, the real power is not with him, it is with you. Let me tell you, we've got a whole lot more love and hope on our side than they have a**holes."
Women marched on Saturday not only to raise awareness for women's rights, but to support the immigrants and "Dreamers" Trump has turned his back on since he took office.
Milano has been outspoken on these issues since Trump targeted the DREAM act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act), an Obama-era initiative that protects young undocumented immigrants from deportation.
See you at the polls.
