Anne Hathaway Joins Protest Over Nigerian Kidnappings

Actress Anne Hathaway attended a rally in Los Angeles on Thursday (08May14) to call for the release of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.

The teenagers were snatched from a school in northern Nigeria last month (Apr14) during a night raid by members of the Boko Haram extremist group, who want to deny them a Western education.

Oscar winner Hathaway and her husband Adam Schulman became the latest celebrities to back the cause, taking to the streets of Los Angeles in a Bring Back Our Girls rally to demand urgent action over the scandal.

Hathaway even used a megaphone to lead the crowd in chants to support the cause.

Documentary filmmaker Ramaa Mosley, who attended the rally, tells Entertainment Tonight, "She came and surprised us and her voice was louder than everybody else. They were yelling at all the cars (passing by)!"

Hathaway is just one of many stars to show their support for the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, which was first launched on Twitter.com.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs, Jada Pinkett Smith, Amy Poehler, Reese Witherspoon, Cara Delevingne, Anthony Kiedis, Alicia Keys, and Ellen DeGeneres are all backing the drive to pressure the Nigerian government to step in and rescue the missing girls.
