Cree Summer and her daughters, Brave and Hero, were three of many stars to partake in the nationwide Women’s March this past weekend. The star mom and her girls met up with Lisa Bonet’s oldest daughter, Zoe, and Willow Smith during the event.
The purpose of the Women’s March was to celebrate rights that women have attained over the years and further the mission of gender equality in America. The gender wage gap is around twenty percent, which places women beneath men on the pay scale in every occupation even though they do the same amount of labor. Men still attempt to regulate women’s reproductive health without having full knowledge of the subject. The Women’s March shed light on these issues and more on Saturday.
Cree Summer vowed to join the movement last week. “I look at their strong, powerful little bodies and I’ll be damned if anyone’s going to deny them the rights to themselves,” the celebrity mom said in reference to her daughters who joined her in an impromptu promotional video on Instagram.
The event’s organizers – Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour – also bolstered such determination by sharing their event’s mission online.
“The Women’s March on Washington is a women-led movement bringing together people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations and backgrounds in our nation’s capital … to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our bold message of resistance and self-determination.”
Cree Summer is the proud mother of two kids. Her oldest daughter, Brave, celebrates her birthday in March. Hero turns 4-years-old on Thursday.
