Jessica Chastain honors Women’s March in powerful ‘SNL’ monologue

Saturday Night Live/YouTube


Only hours after the second-annual Women’s March around the country ended, Saturday Night Live host Jessica Chastain had her own take on what it all meant to her.

And she explained it all while singing and dancing to Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” along with Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong.

Although Chastain lamented the fact she always has to play the role of a strong-willed woman instead of the nagging girlfriend—jokingly, we might add—the women had no problem asserting their opinion when SNL castmembers Beck Bennett and Pete Davidson tried to join along.

Watch the entire monologue here.
