Among the thousands who hit the streets of New York to participate in the nationwide Women’s March and protests the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Saturday (Jan. 21),
Rihanna was getting her feminist on.
Spotted by protestors, the singer, who wore a pink sweatshirt that read “My P***y Grabs Back,” joined the chorus of chants like “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go” and even hit the dab dance in front of President Trump’s Fifth Avenue tower — which a fan caught on video.

Rihanna took to Instagram herself to share a photo from the scene of the Trump Tower protest.”So proud to be a woman!!,” she captioned a shot of herself standing amongst an array of signs. “So proud of the women around the world who came together today for pro-choice.”
New Yorker and Cinderly cofounder Laura von Holt, who spotted RiRi in the protests, told Mashable,
“She danced along to the crowd’s chants and chanted along to ‘My body, my choice’ and ‘Black Lives Matter,’ … She was laughing and chatting with the other protesters, commenting on signs and T-shirt slogans. She seemed very happy to be a part of it. As she left, she waved to all of us and many of us thanked her for coming.”
She also tweeted about the encounter:
