Beyonce endorses anti-Trump Women's March

Beyonce is no stranger to getting political, and now she's backing an anti-Trump event taking place this weekend.

The Women's March in Washington, D.C. was organised following the US election to challenge the views of Donald Trump, which many believe to be discriminatory against women and minorities.

Beyonce was a vocal supporter of his opponent Hillary Clinton, so it's no surprise she's encouraging her fans to voice their concerns about the new US president.

"Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists," she wrote on Facebook.

"As #GlobalCitizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change. #WomensMarch."

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend the Women's March on Saturday, the day after Trump's inauguration.

Organisers hope the peaceful protest will unite diverse communities in the "spirit of democracy" to "send a bold message to our new government".

Smaller events are also being planned around the world to support the Women's March.
