Emotional, powerful and monumental are just three words to describe this past weekend’s global Women’s March.

Millions of women gathered around the world to march for women’s rights, human rights and to let their voices be heard. Dozens of celebrities even attended marches in their respective cities and hundreds more took to social media in solidarity.

HipHollywood caught up with a few women in Hollywood to talk about why the march was not only life changing, but imperative. “It really moved me to write and I’m excited for what’s to come,” Kelly Rowland told us wile on the red carpet for Lifetime’s Love By The 10th Date premiere. “We are demanding to be heard. You are going to hear us.”

Actress and comedian Niecy Nash explained that Saturday’s event was “beautiful.” Nash also suggested, “It just goes to show you what we can do when we come together. So many TV shows showing women being divisive and catty and mean towards each other. But when you come together for a common goal … my God.”

Meagan Good, who stars alongside Rowland in the upcoming Lifetime movie, said we need “more of that.” She told us, “We need more support of each other, more of us that are like minded coming together, fighting back. We need each other. It’s an important time.”

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
