Taylor Swift criticised for calling herself a feminist yet not attending anti-Trump march

Taylor Swift tweeted her support for those taking part in women's marches over the weekend - but this has only brought trouble for the pop superstar.

The singer did not attend a women's march, the day after Donald Trump's inauguration, despite claiming to be a feminist on numerous occasions. 

Many felt that she was only backing feminism when it suited her and her brand because she was not actively campaigning enough.

Millions of people took part in a march in Washington on Saturday, whilst other marches took place around the world.

Other stars such as Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Amy Schumer, Ariana Grande and Madonna participated in marches across the country. 

Unlike many other celebrities, Swift did not back any party or endorse a candidate during the election campaign, only posting a photo of herself after she had voted.
