Donnie isn't the only one preparing a very bigly speech for inauguration weekend. The Beyoncé-endorsed Women's March on Washington has announced the full lineup of speakers taking the stage on Saturday to rally the troops with inspiring words and coherent sentences. The legend-heavy list includes radical activist Angela Davis, trans rights advocate Janet Mock, Women's March co-chair Gloria Steinem, and Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood.

Rounding out the powerful lineup are the Mothers of the (Black Lives Matter) Movement, Malcolm X's daughter Ilyasah Shabazz, and filmmaker Michael Moore, while actresses Scarlett Johansson, America Ferrera, and Ashley Judd will lend the march some further star power. The march's previously announced Artists' Table features the likes of Amandla Stenberg, Hari Nef, Grimes, Lupita Nyong'o, and everyone's favorite anti-Trump tweeter Cher.
