Grande attended the Women's March in Los Angeles with her grandmother, as well as other family members and friends. For the "Side To Side" singer, the movement inspired her. 

"We are so much stronger and louder than hatred, ignorance, sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, body shaming, slut shaming, prejudice, discrimination of all kinds, patriarchal conditioning and the backwards expectations of what a woman should be!" Grande wrote.

She ended her note with a final sentiment: "Let's keep our voices loud, passionate & peaceful! Let's continue being strong for each other and to build each other up! Let us stay connected to our divinity."
