The ensemble reiterated their support for the international charity, which supports women entering the workforce, on program inserts and at the end of the Tony Award-winning show, when several cast members took to the stage in red feminist tees. Thousands of women across the nation also sported the revolutionary color for the “A Day Without A Woman” strike, which aimed to build upon the monumental Women’s March on Washington.
