Scarlett Johansson makes Planned Parenthood plea

Scarlett Johansson has made an impassioned speech about Planned Parenthood, the sexual health charity, at a rally for women's rights.

"President Trump, I did not vote for you," the actress told the crowd in Washington DC, but she said she could still support him if he was willing to support all those who were "anxiously awaiting" his next move as leader.

The 32-year-old's speech was brought to an end prematurely after just seven minutes, but she appealed to the new president to think seriously about women's rights:

Support my daughter, who may actually as a result of the appointments you have made, grow up in a country that is moving backwards, not forwards, and who may potentially not have the right to make choices for her body and her future that your daughter Ivanka has been privileged to have.

– Scarlett Johansson
