Shailene Woodley spoke up loud and proud at the We Stand United Rally outside Trump International Hotel & Tower in New York City last night (January 19).
The Big Little Lies star joined Alec Baldwin, Mark Ruffalo, Cher and more at the rally, which brought together citizens from across the country who will work in solidarity with people fighting to advance the causes of racial, social, environmental and economic justice.
During her speech, Shailene referenced her time and efforts in Standing Rock: “What they were able to accomplish is what we need to learn from.”
“The narrative surrounding ‘us against them’ does not ever work. Violence does not work. Aggression does not work,” she added about peaceful protests. “They did it in North Dakota when no one was watching … We can do it across the country.”

Shailene Woodley grabs our attention in an eye-catching orange coat during ELLE’s 2017 Women In Television Celebration over the weekend in Los Angeles.
Just after attending the Winter TCA panel with Big Little Lies co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Kravitz, and Nicole Kidman, the four headed to the event, which celebrated their February covers.
“She’s very, very responsible. She’s good at keeping her boundaries and standing up for herself,” Nicole shared in her interview about Shailene. “If she doesn’t believe in something, she says so.”
Nicole adds, “I could probably have learned from that at her age. I don’t think I stood up for myself in the same way she does.”
FYI: Shailene is wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo coat.
Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz starred together in the Divergent series and now they are reuniting on the small screen for the upcoming HBO limited series Big Little Lies!
The ladies sat next to each other while on a panel for the show at the 2017 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Saturday morning (January 14) at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, Calif.
Shai and Zoe were joined by their co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.
Reese opened up on the panel about why it’s so important to tell female stories on screen. Read what she said on
FYI: Shailene is wearing a Bottega Veneta outfit. Reese is wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Jennifer Meyer jewelry.
As far as the US Presidental Election goes, Shailene Woodley is over her grieving period.
The Big Little Lies actress, who shares the February 2017 cover of Elle magazine with her co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Zoe Kravitz, opened up about politics in the glossy, and how she knew exactly why Donald Trump was going to win the election.
“It’s hard to talk about politics in a Hollywood world. I learned that really quickly,” she shared. “But after the California primaries, when Bernie Sanders lost—and I’m not saying he should have won—I knew that Trump was going to win.”
“Because I’d been on the ground for months, and we would be in small cities in America and big cities in America, and Bernie would get tens of thousands of people at his rallies. And then Trump would come and he’d get the same numbers,” Shailene adds, “But Hillary would only have a few hundred people at her fundraisers.”
She continued, “It doesn’t matter how much more you have in your bank; if 50,000 people show up to your opponents’ rallies and you only have a few hundred people, it says a lot about what the people of America are ready to do. I grieved all of this months ago, where- as most people are grieving it now.”

We’re fresh off the third viewing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, watching Jyn Erso pretty much save the world. Nope, the galaxy.
It got us thinking, this year had some pretty kick-ass heroines.
From fearless Tris (Allegiant) to otherworldly Jaylah (Star Trek Beyond), fabulous femmes definitely had a moment on the big screen this year.
We know we know Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens can’t make the cut since the movie premiered two weeks before the start of 2016, so we’ll start with our other favorite female warrior:
Actress Felicity Jones gave us chills as the ultimate rebel, with her brooding and epic performance of a girl on the ultimate mission in the Rogue One: A Star Wars story. Her valor and her never-ending passion had us on the edge of our seats when we saw her take on her fair share of Storm Troopers and climb the tower, we knew it was going to be one of our favorite Star Wars films to date.
Rowan Blanchard is a ray of light. Many people think 2016 has turned out to be a stale potato chip: hard to swallow, chewy, and altogether just worse than it was supposed to be. Still, despite being a year that historians may cringe at, there are a number of people who have fought to change the world for the better this year.
If you are an activist at heart, or just support people who want to make the world a better place, here are 12 stars you need to know in 2017.
From standing with the Sioux Reservation in protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline to breaking gender barriers, we end the year celebrating these stars.

1. Shailene Woodley
This past year, Shailene Woodley proved herself to be far more than an actress, using her fame and her platform to raise awareness for and to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, a crude oil line that may taint the water supply for Standing Rock, a sacred Native American site. Shailene not only posted about the injustice on Instagram, but she also went to North Dakota herself to protest, getting arrested in the process, but coming back stronger than ever.
2. Rowan Blanchard
Rowan Blanchard has been hailed a feminist icon, and for good reason: she uses her Instagram to post about causes that are meaningful to her, from the election to the patriarchy, and she speaks out whenever she can about what feminism means to her and its impact on the world. Rowan is a hopeful indicator that the new generation is smart, thoughtful, and progressive — and that our future may be bright after all.
