One celebrity who was conspicuously absent from the 2016 election — never speaking out, never choosing sides, apart from a very subtle Instagram post — was self-declared feminist and mega pop star Taylor Swift. While millions of women — and numerous celebrities — marched against the newly sworn-in commander-in-chief in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, and in other cities across the U.S. and the world, Swift was once again nowhere to be found.


Her only acknowledgment of the massive protests for gender equality came a little after 4 p.m. on Saturday, when she tweeted, “So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched. I’m proud to be a woman today, and every day. #WomensMarch.” However, there has been no word on why she chose not to join the protesters, which included members of her “girl squad” such as Lena Dunham and Blake Lively.
