Stars from around the globe turned out in force on Saturday at many of the huge gatherings held around the world to support womens’ rights - in a show of force on the first full day of Donald Trump’s presidency.

An estimated 2.2 million people took to the streets across the world for the Women’s Marches, held one day after Friday’s inauguration ceremony in Washington.
