More Than a Million Women Worldwide Including Celebs Marched in Opposition to Donald Trump And It Was HUGE! [PHOTOS]

In a global exclamation of defiance and solidarity, more than 1 million people rallied at women’s marches in the nation’s capital and cities around the world Saturday to send President Donald Trump an emphatic message on his first full day in office that they won’t let his agenda go unchallenged.

“Welcome to your first day, we will not go away!” marchers in Washington chanted.

Many of the women came wearing pink, pointy-eared hats to mock the new president. Plenty of men joined in, too, contributing to surprising numbers. The Washington rally alone attracted over 500,000 people according to city officials — apparently more than Trump’s inauguration drew on Friday. It was easily one of the biggest demonstrations in the city’s history, and as night fell, not a single arrest was reported.

The international outpouring served to underscore the degree to which Trump has unsettled people in both hemispheres.

Madonna Thought About “Blowing Up The White House” After Donald Trump’s Presidential Victory

“We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war,” actress America Ferrera told the Washington crowd.

Around the world, women brandished signs with slogans such as “Women won’t back down” and “Less fear more love.” They decried Trump’s stand on such issues as abortion, health care, diversity and climate change. And they branded him a sexist, a bully, a bigot and more.

“We want a leader, not a creepy tweeter,” some marchers chanted in Washington.

It far surpassed the 60,000 people who protested the Vietnam War at Richard Nixon’s inauguration in 1973. Before Saturday, that was thought to be the largest such demonstration in inaugural history.

The marches were a magnet for A-list celebrities, unlike Trump’s inauguration, which had a deficit of top performers.

Alicia Keys sang “Girl on Fire” for the Washington crowd. Madonna gave a fiery, profanity-laced address to the gathering. Cher, also in the nation’s capital, said Trump’s ascendance has people “more frightened maybe than they’ve ever been.”

They Aren’t Allowed To Drive

Some people may try and lead you to believe that the fate of our world rests on who becomes President. The power of the Presidency is not unlimited. In fact, despite being in a very powerful position, the President’s abilities are surprisingly limited. Here are 5 things the President of the US can’t actually do.

Cannot Use An iPhone

The power to declare war actually rests solely with Congress. It is not shared with The President, though the sitting President must sign the official Declaration of War.

Emotional Johnny Depp thanks fans for standing by him through divorce drama at People’s Choice Awards

He has had a devastating past year that saw his beloved mother die and a bitter end to his year-long marriage to Amber Heard.

On Wednesday night, Johnny Depp took to the People’s Choice Awards to thank his fans for standing by him as he accepted the Favorite Movie Icon gong at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

‘I came here for one reason, and one reason only,’ the Edward Scissorhands star began. ‘I came here for you, the people, who through whatever good times or bad have stood by me and trusted me.

‘Thank you. You very graciously invited me here once again tonight. I appreciate it. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.’

‘I was very deeply affected by the kindness of your recognition and your well wishes to me and my family,’ he said with emotion in his voice.

Choked up: The 53-year-old accepted his award onstage, noting that the statue was blue before delivering an emotional speech

‘Why it is especially meaningful for me to be here in front of you is to say thank you and tell you that I truly feel the need to thank.’

‘Because in all honesty we all know that none of us, especially me, would not be standing up here if it wasn’t for all of you.’

He then looked heavenward and shouted a tribute to his late mother: ‘Give em hell Betty Sue.’

Victoria Beckham Allegedly Takes Legal Action To Block a Possible Spice Girls Reunion

Victoria Beckham has reportedly taken steps to prevent her ex-bandmates from performing classic Spice Girls tracks under the name GEM.

The 42-year-old fashion designer is said to have called on lawyers in a bid to stop Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Mel B performing the band’s classic hits, a claim which she strongly denied.

According to The Sun, Victoria has left the three members of the new group ‘devastated’ after resorting to using her legal team.

Speaking to the paper a source close to the group said: ‘The girls are devastated. It is an extremely sad way for things to end … Victoria was a huge part of their lives and now she is using lawyers to block their comeback.

spice-girls-2

‘Victoria is proud of her Spice Girls history but this suggests she wants to cut all links with the group which transformed her life.

‘She is resorting to aggressive legal letters and it is an extremely sad way for things to end after all they have been through together.’

A representative for Victoria told MailOnline: ‘No legal letter was sent this is a fabrication by The Sun and this story is now being handled legally by Victoria’s lawyer.’

It was announced in 2016 that Geri, Emma and Mel would be reuniting under the name GEM for a Spice Girls reunion, with the trio heading into the studio to record new music as well.

However, the news that Victoria has resorted to legal action to block the reunion group performing the tracks comes shortly after Geri Horner allegedly put the group on hold.

Geri, 42, dashed fans’ dreams of a Spice Girls reunion earlier this week after she reportedly put GEM on hold to focus on her family.

The pregnant singer – who is already mum to 10-year-old daughter Bluebell – is expecting her first child with husband Christian Horner and is said to have changed her priorities.

A source told The Sun: ‘Geri’s priorities have changed. Her baby is due later this year and rather than force a reunion, she’s needs to concentrate on more personal matters.

spice-girls-member

‘Getting all the girls in the studio at the same time proved a tough task. What they needed was one main boss-style figure to pull the strings otherwise they would be constantly in limbo.’

While Geri had hoped to revive the trio – despite Victoria Beckham and Mel C choosing not to return – the group suffered another knock when Rolling Stones’ manager Joyce Smyth reportedly also stepped away from the project.

MailOnline have contact Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Mel B’s reps for comment.

Woman’s ‘medium rare’ chicken strip recipe disgusts the internet – but she insists it ‘tastes better’

A viral post of ‘medium rare’ chicken strips has left the internet baffled.The nauesating picture of the raw chicken quickly gained notoriety online

The Facebook post by Australian Morgan Jane Gibbs shows a plateful of very pink pieces of chicken with the caption: ‘Just made chicken medium rare chicken strips.

‘They’re so good can’t believe I’ve never tried it like this before. Can’t wait to dig into this with my homemade salad and veges. #healthy #newyearsresolution #clean #cleaneating’

Unsurprisingly the post has gained notoriety online as people try and figure out if Ms Gibbs is being serious with her nauseating dish.

‘Salmonella poisoning dude!’ one outraged user posted.

Ms Gibbs replied: ‘It’s not salmon though it’s chicken.’

The Australian woman even encouraged friends to try the recipe for themselves, a suggestion they quickly declined.

The post was even subject to a bit of thievery, when Texas woman Dakota Jean posted the image and caption word-for-word a few days later, with the addition of #vegan.

Her post sent the internet into further frenzy, being shared over 2000 times.

And while many again expressed disgust at the raw chicken dish, others quickly picked up that the image is in fact a joke and quickly joined in.

‘You should only cook it this way if you’re 100 per cent sure the chicken wasn’t vaccinated. Because that gives them autism and autistic chickens get salmonella,’ one user chimed in.

Another added: ‘Medium rare chicken is the best, I don’t know how people eat it any other way!’

While the posts by Ms Gibbs, Ms Jean and countless others are definitely jokes, the controversial image itself appears to be legitimate.

It originally comes from a blog promoting tourism in the Japanese region of Shizuoka and the recipe for chicken tataki; chicken seared over hot coals and served raw.

Chicken sashimi is another Japanese dish where the bird is served raw, chefs manage to avoid the issue of pesky food poisoning by serving the meat as fresh as possible and raising the chickens in a hygienic environment.

Mariah Carey admits she would confide in Prince in times when she “really needed somebody”

In April 2016, the world lost a musical legend.

And in a preview clip for Sunday’s upcoming episode of Mariah’s World, Mariah Carey is seen nearly breaking down as she announces Prince’s passing to concertgoers.

The E! reality show will revisit the day the 46-year-old singer-songwriter admitted to fans that she wasn’t sure if she’d be able to continue her performance.

‘I didn’t know if I was gonna be able to make it through this show tonight,’ the We Belong Together songstress began.

mariah-satge-10

‘We lost one of the greatest, most incredible geniuses that we’ve ever had in music.’

Mariah explained that her decision to ultimately take the stage stemmed from knowing that Prince would have encouraged her to do so, rather than wallow.

The mother-of-two went on to open up about her friendship with the Purple Rain singer, which spanned decades.

She said, teary-eyed: ‘He was a friend to me, too. He talked me through some times when I really, really needed somebody.’

To commemorate her late confidante, Mimi asked the audience for a respectful moment of silence, and later on sang the singer’s hit One Sweet Day in his honor.

Prince’s friendship was meaningful to Mariah, and she took his advice above anyone else’s. It was he who convinced Carey to serve as a judge on American Idol in 2013.

Sunday’s emotional episode will also see Mariah getting her final wedding dress fitting ahead of her nuptials to ex-fiance James Packer.

The voluptuous beauty can be seen doting on her daughter Monroe as the five-year-old tries on her matching dress and current boyfriend Bryan Tanaka looks on.

A 10-year-old girl allegedly raped and murdered by her mother and her boyfriend had a sexually transmitted disease at the time of her death.

An autopsy report into the death of Victoria Martens has reportedly confirmed the cause of death was strangulation following sexual abuse.

Tributes to Victoria were paid at a memorial service in August where more than 600 mourners dressed in purple – the youngster’s favourite colour.

Fabian Gonzales

Ms Bobbs has supported Victoria’s family throughout their ordeal.

She appeared alongside Victoria’s grandparents John and Pat Martens, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, in their first television interview on KRQE 13 News after the tragedy.

The couple, who retired to take care of Victoria and her younger brother, said they are standing by their daughter despite the allegations against her.

Michelle Obama Thanks Her ‘Silver Fox’ Husband Barack For ‘Not Being A Lame Duck’ As Presidency Draws To A Close

It was a bitter-sweet moment for Michelle Obama as she made her last TV appearance as First Lady.

Speaking with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show in New York City on Wednesday, she paid tribute to her husband Barack as his Presidency draws to a close.

Fallon and Obama reminisced about their first time seeing each other at the White House, which involved Fallon wearing a headband and spandex in a potato sack race.

In a sketch where she penned a letter to her husband and outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama, the first lady wrote, “Thank you Barack, for proving you’re not a lame duck, but my very own Silver Fox.”

It is understood it was Michelle Obama’s last appearance on a talk show as First lady.

It comes after Barack Obama tearfully thanked Michelle during an emotional final speech as President on Tuesday night.

Wiping his eyes, Obama told the First Lady: “Michelle – for the past twenty-five years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children but my best friend.

“You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humour.

“You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody.”

“And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud.

“You’ve made the country proud.”

In a poignant moment, Obama also made a point of thanking his two daughters.

“Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion,” he said.

“You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily.

“Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad.”

Girl, 15, charged with murder of seven-year-old Katie Rough in York

A teenager has been charged with the murder of a seven-year-old girl in York.

Katie Rough died after her throat was slashed in playing fields – as her desperate mum raced to the scene crying: “No, no, it’s my little girl.”

A 15-year-old girl was arrested and later charged with murder, police confirmed.

She is also charged with the possession of an offensive weapon, North Yorkshire Police said.

The girl will appear at York Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning.

Only two weeks ago, Katie stole the show as a bridesmaid at her parents’ wedding. She was stabbed on Monday afternoon an hour after school finished.

The little girl’s mum was alerted to the horror and raced to the scene in a car. But after seeing her wounded child, she dropped to her knees sobbing: “No, no, it’s my little girl. Help get an ambulance.”

Katie died after the attack which took place around 4.30pm.

Her dad Paul Rough arrived at the fields in the affluent Woodthorpe area of York, North Yorks, shortly after his wife, Alison, 38.

Seven year old Katie Rough

The attack took place just over half a mile from the Rough’s home in Foxwood, York.

As medics worked on their daughter, the distraught mum paced back and forwards from the field where her daughter lay stricken in the mud while the dad stood slumped against a wall in despair.

The couple, who married two weeks ago, comforted each other as she was stretchered away with an oxygen mask on.

Katie was declared dead at hospital.

It is believed the horror was witnessed by several locals walking their dogs.

They are thought to have alerted police and paramedics to the horror after seeing a wound to Katie’s neck.

Tracey Ralph, head teacher of Westfield Primary School, said: “Katie was a kind and thoughtful child who was well-liked by both pupils and staff. She was hardworking and showed a particular talent for creative writing.

“Her death is a terrible loss which has deeply saddened our school community and we send our profound sympathies to her family.

“All members of our school are being offered emotional support at this distressing time.”

Thug Filmed Rape Of His Girlfriend Then Puts Photos Of The Injuries He’d Inflicted On His Facebook

A woman has recalled the horrific abuse she was subjected to by her former partner – who boasted of his attacks by putting photos of her injuries on Facebook.

Atlanta Hammond, from Braintree, Essex, says she was subjected to daily physical abuse, banned from socialising and forced to quit her job by her ex-boyfriend.

And when the mother-of-one plucked up the courage to leave him, he threatened to publish a video of himself raping her while she slept and post it online.

The 21-year-old, who has a two-year-old son, says her former partner exerted control over her from the time they met in 2013, when she was just 18.

She said Halil Cetinkayali, 30, made her ‘feel like a princess’ – before things quickly turned sour.

Halil, who Atlanta described as a staunch Muslim, made her quit her job as a carer ‘out of respect for his faith’.

And after Googling friends’ names on the internet one day, she found he was using an alias and was wanted by police.
However, when she confronted him, he turned violent, grabbing her throat and said he would post the footage of the two of them online.

The pair stayed together, with Halil abusing her every day.

She told The Sun: ‘I didn’t have to do anything to get hit. Say the wrong thing, answer back, talk to the wrong person.

The abuse finally became too much for Atlanta one night when she attempted to escape Halil’s clutches as he slept and go to her mother’s house.

However Halil caught Atlanta as she was about to get into a cab outside their home, viciously assaulting her and stabbing her in the hip as a result.

It was after this final attack that a brave Atlanta plucked up the courage to tell the police of the abuse, and he was arrested for wounding with intent.

But such was the power he had over his victim that Halil was able to convince Atlanta to retract her statement and he was released with an electronic tag in July 2014.

It was at this point that Halil showed her the video he had taken off himself raping Atlanta while she slept.

It was this threat that proved the final straw for the mother of one, who sent a final text to Halil with pictures of the cuts and bruises she has suffered at his hands.

Incredibly, Halil would himself post the images onto Facebook, along with the caption ‘This is the girl I beat up and cheated on for two years’.

Atlanta broke off all contact with Halil afterwards, and wouldn’t see him again until she returned to her home one day to find him lying on her bed.

He chased her into the street and viciously attacked her in broad daylight, leading neighbours to call for the police.

It was after his arrest that Atlanta finally told police officers the whole story of her physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her partner.

Halil was sentenced to 19 years and eight months in prison.

 

Menstrual Leave Is Now A Thing! Should Women Have 1 Day Off Per Month During Their Periods?

Ladies, we have probably all experienced that ‘time of the month’ when your stomach is in knots and riddled with unbelievably painful cramps that mark the arrival of ‘the little red train’.

The experience may sometimes make it hard for you to focus and having to go to work can be torture in itself.

That being said, Zambia has set a well-received precedent dubbed ‘Mother’s Day’ which gives ladies 1 day off per month to deal with their menstrual cycle.

Women in Zambia do not need to make prior arrangements to be absent from work, but can simply call in on the day to say they are taking Mother’s Day.

 

Government ministers have made it clear that the practice is only entitled for those who are ill.

An employer who denies female employees this entitlement can be prosecuted.

However, not everyone is so supportive of Mother’s Day, and there are many women among the critics.

Mutinta Musokotwane-Chikopela is married and has three children. She has a full-time marketing job but never takes Mother’s Day, arguing that it encourages laziness in working women.

“I don’t believe in it and I don’t take it. Menses are a normal thing in a woman’s body; it’s like being pregnant or childbirth,” she says.

READ; Ladies, Here Are The 5 Reasons You Keep Getting UTIs

Some argue that the reality is bad for business.

Harrington Chibanda, head of the Zambia Federation of Employers says “Imagine a company that has a number of employees and six or seven take Mother’s Day on the same day. What will happen to productivity?” he asks.

But perhaps even more than the practical benefits, it is the intention and the spirit of the legislation that many Zambians support.

As Linda Kasonde, a senior lawyer, states;

“The reason why mother’s day is important within the Zambian context is that it recognises that women are the primary care-givers in our society – regardless of whether they are married or not.”

Should Kenyans think about doing the same?

George Michael ‘haunted by family suicides’ after his mum found her father and brother had gassed themselves

Suicide had previously cast a grim shadow over George Michael and his family after the deaths of his uncle and grandad.

It is believed that the pop star, found dead on Christmas Day, lived in fear of history repeating itself.

His uncle Colin, who was believed to be secretly gay, killed himself on the day George was born in 1963. It is thought George’s heartbroken grandad then also committed suicide, and in the same way.

George once said: “They’d both put their heads in the gas oven. And, lucky old mum, she found both of them.”

The deaths prompted the singer to hide his sexuality from his mom, Lesley until he was 29. She lived in terror that he would inherit the “gay gene” and would suffer the same fate.

George revealed in an interview in 2007: “My mother had this fear of me being gay.

“She had this definite fear that I was going to be like her brother. She thought it meant I wouldn’t cope with life.”

George did have demons. He openly battled depression for decades, leaving him hooked on prescription drugs.

He was arrested several times for drug offences.

The star, who was supposedly “checking the door” of the vehicle, was airlifted to hospital.

Queen Elizabeth Almost SHOT By Her Own Guardsman After He Finds Her Strolling Buckingham Palace Gardens At 3am

The Queen was once found strolling palace gardens at 3am by a guardsman, who told her: “Bloody hell, Your Majesty . I nearly shot you”, it has been claimed.

According to an account of the astonishing encounter, Her Majesty quipped in response: “That’s quite all right.

“Next time I’ll ring through beforehand so you don’t have to shoot me.”

The Queen is a fan of late night walks and when she struggles to sleep, she will walk around the palace grounds wearing a winter coat.

A guardsman apparently came across The Monarch in the small hours and asked her: “Who’s that?” before he realised it was the Head of State.

Buckingham Palace

It is thought that the encounter, reported in The Times, happened at the Monarch’s official London residence Buckingham Palace.

It is also believed that it happened several years ago and that the 90-year-old Queen is now unlikely to be found on similar expeditions.

In 2013 Prince Andrew was mistaken for an intruder and confronted by armed police as he walked in the same gardens.

Police said no weapons were drawn but issued an apology to the prince.

Managing Editor of Majesty Magazine Joe Little said about the tale of The Queen and guardsman: “What a great story.

“While wanting to take it with a pinch of salt, if Prince Andrew’s identity can be challenged by a policeman in the same garden in broad daylight then there’s no reason to think that something similar couldn’t happen to his mother in the dead of night.”

The Queen spends the working week at Buckingham Palace which has been the subject of several security breaches in recent years.

In August 2016 police a 22-year-old man was arrested just after 4am after climbing over a security fence and being spotted by officers monitoring CCTV.

And in May 2016 Denis Hennessy, 41, climbed over barbed wire and roamed freely in the palace grounds for 10 minutes while The Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew were in residence.

When he was found by officers he repeatedly asked them: “Is Ma’am in?”

Mother’s heartache after she put her twin baby girl down for a nap on New Year’s Eve but she never woke up

When mum Monique Davey cuddled her daughter Harper on New Year’s Eve, she had no idea it would be the last time she did so.

The mum-of-five, from Townsville, Queensland, held five-month-old twins, Harper and Hudson, close to her on January 31 before putting them down for a nap.

The plan was for the babies to be awake when the time came for the whole family to attend midnight fireworks by the water in celebration of New Year’s Eve.

Mum Monique Davey (right) has shared her heartbreak after her daughter Harper (left) died on New Year's Eve

However only an hour later Ms Davey realised that Harper’s foot was very pale. When she checked, her little girl wasn’t breathing in her cot.

The mum told her partner, Darren Stephens, to call an ambulance, and started giving CPR to the baby until paramedics arrived.

‘I was just screaming, they came and whisked her away. We raced down the hospital friends met us there to take the kids,’ Ms Davey wrote in an emotional post about the tragedy on GoFundMe

’15 minutes later, The doctor came in and told us it’s unsuccessful. I was begging to tell them to give me an answer why did she die? WHY WHY WHY?’

However only an hour later she realised Harper was pale and not breathing so her mother started to perform CPR

Despite all her efforts, and that of the paramedics, Harper was unable to be revived. She passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

‘I had laid down with Hudson and Harper, little did I know that it would be our last cuddle,’ the devastated mum told The Townsville Bulletin. 

The family had only recently been able to come home from the hospital after the birth of the twins, who arrived 10 weeks early.

‘Premature babies have a higher risk of SIDS but I read a thousand pamphlets and heard a thousand stories but I never thought it was something that could happen to us,’ the mum said. 

Harper's older siblings know she is in heaven but don't understand how she went to sleep and didn't wake up

The heartbroken mum said that she wished she could understand why it happened.

‘I was begging [the doctors] to find out why or what it was that killed her,’ Ms Davey said. ‘She just went to sleep and never woke up.’

Now the family is trying to deal with their insurmountable grief of losing a child so young, and Hudson will grow up without his twin sister.

The couple’s older children, Logan, seven, Logan, six, and Jacob, one, have been told that Harper is in heaven, but don’t understand why she simply went to sleep and didn’t wake up.

Muhammad Ali’s multi-million dollar will settlement to spark ‘World War Three’ among his family

Muhammad Ali ’s multi-million dollar will has been finalised­ at last – with the settlement set to spark “World War Three” among his family.

The boxing legend’s widow Lonnie is allegedly getting double what his children­ will receive, which is likely to inflame an already poisonous atmosphere.

“Once the money is there, expect the biggest war yet,” said an insider.

The siblings, said to hate each other, have maintained­ a fragile truce not to risk their slices of Ali’s $80million (Ksh 8 billion) estate. Ali died in June, aged 74, and the money is yet to be handed out.

An attorney for the Muhammad Ali Trust, which governs the distribution of his estate, said: “It was crafted to reflect his specific wishes and to protect his legacy.”

But now the family have been told what they will get, that legacy could include a bitter family fallout. His nine children­ are each set to pocket around $6million (Ksh 600,000). Ali’s only sibling, brother Rahman, whose feud with the boxer’s widow was well documented­, gets no money.

His seven daughters and two sons, including biological son Muhammad Ali Jr and adopted son Asaad – are expected to let their true feelings be known after being told the legal process is over.

Bitterness lingers over how their father was buried and the fact Will Smith, Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson were pallbearers, not his sons.

The insider added: “They all play nice-nicey now, but simmering tension goes back decades. None of the kids trust Lonnie, all are from different mothers and hate each other.

“Lonnie is said to get double what the kids have which has left many seething. They didn’t like her before their dad passed away accusing her of preventing them from seeing him.

“When he died some sucked up to Lonnie just to get as much as they can, but the truth is that they all did it – then accused the other siblings of doing it.

“Once money is in the bank it looks like they will cut all ties with each other but not before their true feelings are aired. But it’s not just the inheritance. There is a lot of bitterness between the family’s strict Muslims and non-believers for the way the funeral was conducted.

“They were disgusted he wasn’t buried within 48 hours as the Koran states, and that Will Smith and Mike Tyson were pallbearers. Some of the children are appalled it was more about a celebrity list than his own flesh and blood.
