MYX NEWS MINUTE: MADONNA At The Women's March In Washington
Alicia Keys - who was part of the list of influential women that marched to the White House - made an empowering speech in front of thousands of Americans. She then proceeded to perform "Girl On Fire" to uplift the spirits of women who gathered together to support the vision of this historical movement!
“Thank you so much for your womanliness. Thank you so much for your strength. Thank you so much. Let us continue to honor all that is beautiful about being feminine. We are mothers, we are caregivers, we are artists, we are activists, we are entrepreneurs, doctors, leaders of industry and technology. Our potential is unlimited. We rise," she said.
"We will not allow our bodies to be owned and controlled by men in government — or men anywhere, for that matter. We will not allow our compassionate souls to get stepped on. We want the best for all Americans — no hate, no bigotry, no Muslim registry. We value education, healthcare, and equality. We will continue to rise until our voices are heard, until our planet’s safety is not deferred, until our bombs stop dropping in other lands, until our dollar is the same dollar as a man’s, and we continue to recognize that yes we can, until everyone respects mother energy and everyone with a bellybutton must agree," she continued.
