A post-inauguration protest may pack more A-listers than any awards event this season. The Women's March on Washington, a protest of Donald Trump's inauguration, is expected to attract more than 100,000 participants. 


Among them are celebrities such as Katy Perry, Amy Schumer, Scarlett Johansson, and Zendaya.

Johansson supported Hillary Clinton in this year's election and voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. In October, she told Variety that she feared Trump would endanger funding for Planned Parenthood — an organization close to her heart. Republicans have already announced their intentions to cut federal funding to the women's health organization.

Schumer spoke out against Trump throughout his campaign. An audience even booed her during a performance in Florida for expressing her views. Perry, meanwhile, campaigned heavily for Clinton. After the election, she turned her attention to protest efforts.

"WE WILL NEVER BE SILENCED. #LOVETRUMPSHATE," she tweeted after election day. "Do not sit still. Do not weep. MOVE. We are not a nation that will let HATE lead us."

The January 21 march will "send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world, that women's rights are human rights."

Other celebrity attendees include Cher, Julianne Moore, Debra Messing, Uzo Aduba, Olivia Wilde, Constance Wu and Zendaya, according to a press release. America Ferrera will chair the artist's table at the march, and Chelsea Handler will host a sister march in Utah.

Notably absent from the list of attendees, however, is outspoken feminist Lena Dunham.

Dunham has maintained a low profile after her comments about wishing she had an abortion sparked outcry last month. The "Girls" creator is not named alongside the other celebrities in the protest's official press release, and has made no mention of attending herself. Her Lenny Letter newsletter hasn't mentioned the march either.

Mark "seeing if Lena Dunham turns up" as yet another reason to attend the Women's March next week.
