Taylor Swift is a true female icon. One of the most powerful musicians EVER in history, she’s been ruler of the pop world since her self-titled was released in 2006.
The Women’s March was carried out all over the world, with the aim of proving women’s power and importance to Donald Trump. More than 2 million people, men and women, are supposed to have marched in Washington D.C., L.A., Chicago and New York – and that number’s just for the American marches!
Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Zendaya and Bella Thorne were some of the celebrities who attended, but fans were pretty surprised that Taylor, a self-proclaimed feminist chose not to go. However, she did later tweet her support of the march.
So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched. I'm proud to be a woman today, and every day. #WomensMarch

@taylorswift13 you got a bad leg or something? Why didn't you March?

@BAHjournalist but she really should have done more, march? Maybe say something during the election?

@taylorswift13 but where were you during the entire election?

@MorganWanserski Nah. Twiddling your fingers on Twitter and marching are two very different things.

But some faithful Swifties stuck on Team Taylor:

What do you think? Was Taylor morally obligated to attend or should people mind their own business? Let us know in the comments below!
