Anne Hathaway shares Roe v Wade message as she marks The Devil Wears Prada’s 16th anniversary

‘See you in the fight,’ posted actor

Glastonbury 2022: Every performer who used their platform to criticise Roe v Wade

Anne Hathaway has used the 16th anniversary of her film The Devil Wears Prada as an opportunity to comment on the overturning of Roe v Wade.

Last Friday (24 June), the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of a Mississippi law that criminalises abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy while also overturning key precedents established by the 1973 decision in Roe v Wade.

On Thursday 30 June, which was the 16th anniversary of the movie, the actor shared stills on Instagram.

Hathaway captioned the post: “Looking back on photos of this beloved film that shaped the lives and careers of so many – mine included – I am struck by the fact that the young female characters in this movie built their lives and careers in a country that honoured their right to have choice over their own reproductive health.”

She added: “See you in the fight.”

Her post follows another from 24 June, in which she had shared a New Yorker article titled "We’re Not Going Back to the Time Before Roe. We’re Going Somewhere Worse”.

The actor had written: “So much to say, but let’s start here.”

Many celebrities have spoken out against the overturning of Roe v Wade, including Jane Fonda and Selena Gomez.

A number of musicians at Glastonbury also used their platform to speak out against the decision: Kendrick Lamar said “Godspeed for women’s rights” and Phoebe Bridgers led chants of “f*** the Supreme Court”.
