Among the thousands of people who flocked to Washington, D.C. for Saturday’s incredible Women’s March were Emma Watson and her mom, whose presence at the demonstration warmed our hearts and ignited our activist spirit for the many years of resistance ahead of us.

The actress, U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador and founder of the feminist HeForShe campaign, joined the crowd of around half a million people in D.C. — her first march ever.

Below, check out some of the photos Watson shared from the march of herself and her mother, Jacqueline Luesby, who was decked out in a pink “pussy hat.”

Watson also shared photos and videos of the massive crowds at the event, stopping to meet fans and fellow marchers.

Watson first “came out” as a feminist in 2014 when she announced the launch of HeForShe in a speech at the U.N. headquarters in New York.

“I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me,” she said in the now-famous speech.

She has since gone on to launch a feminist online book club, called Our Shared Shelf, and in 2016 announced that she was taking a year off of acting to expand her knowledge of feminist theory and history. All we have to say is: You go, girl!
