The fight continues. 

Bryan Cranston, Evan Rachel Wood, Connie Britton and Sarah Hyland were just some of the celebs who turned out to fight for women's rights and protest the policies of President Donald Trump across the country at the 2019 Women's March on Saturday. 

Cranston made a big impact with the crowd in New York City, as he emerged from his balcony at the Belasco Theater, where he's currently starring in Network, to cheer them on. The 62-year-old actor shared a video from the electric moment to Instagram. 

"The Women’s March from my balcony at the Belasco Theater in New York! Exciting to witness and support these powerful women of all ages, colors and creeds. Change is coming! #womensmarch #womanempowerment #theatre #networkonbroadway," he captioned the clip. 

At the march in Los Angeles, Wood shared a photo of herself with several famous ladies, including Britton, Ingrid Michaelson and Lea Thompson. 

Felicity Huffman and her husband, William H. Macy, also participated. "Proud to march alongside people who demand better for all women. We all deserve better and we are not going away silently. Here’s to the future! 💪🏼💖👭 #WomensMarch," the actress captioned a slideshow on Instagram. 

Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui took the stage to deliver a speech about speaking truth to power, as well as to perform her song, "Expectations." 

Hyland attended the event with her boyfriend, Wells Adams, while other stars, like Marisa Tomei, Lance Bass, Stephanie Sigman, Ricki Lake, Adam Rippon and more also turned up.

I was so honored to get to attend and speak at #womensmarchla today. It was wonderful to see and meet so many of you and feel your energy.the backlash is real and happening but you showed up and showed out. Thank you! An excerpt from my remarks today: ... The achieving of basic human rights, dignity, justice or equity for one group of people does not mean that something is being taken from another group. That's scarcity thinking and scarcity thinking will always drive us further from each other. Divide and conquer is one of the primary tools of the oppressor to control marginalized people. And when I say oppressor let me be clear, each and everyone of us has the capacity to be an oppressor,  no matter who we are, where we are located on social hierarchies or how we identify. And each of us has the capacity to be liberators for ourselves and each other.  We have seen the tool of divide and conquer be used to attack this very march... Mary Pipher in her book "Reviving Ophelia" so beautifully writes, "Social change is a million individual acts of kindness.  Cultural change is a million subversive acts of resistance." It is subversive to choose love in this fear mongering cultural environment of us vs. them. It is a subversive act of resistance to choose love today. #TransIsBeautiful #womensmarch #love #resist

Missing from this year's event was scheduled speaker Laura Dern, who explained to her followers on Instagram that her flight from France was delayed, but urged them to keep marching. The Big Little Lies star wasn't the only one that skipped out on the event this year, however. According to The Washington Post, marches across the country experienced lower turnouts than in past years, in the aftermath of negative press for the organization. 

The Women's March was recently on the receiving end of accusations of anti-Semitism amongst the leadership, following a December report by Tablet, a Jewish news magazine. All of the accusations have been denied.
