Russell Crowe led the celebrity tweets, reflecting on his own experience as a parent.

“I have two beautiful sons. I wasn’t lucky enough to have a daughter,” he wrote. “If I had, I’d wish her to have courage like yours. Nobody’s daughter should ever be told she doesn’t have authority over her own body.”
