The 2017 Tony Awards were a celebration of Broadway’s best and brightest, and for Tony-nominated actress Sally Field, it was also a celebration of Planned Parenthood

On Sunday night, Field, who was nominated for Best Leading Actress for her role in “The Glass Menagerie,” tweeted a picture of herself pointing at a gold PP pin on her dress. 

“Sick of hearing actors talk re: politics?” she asked in the tweet’s caption. “Too bad, I won’t stay silent while politicians attack our rights. Proud to #StandWithPP.”

Later on Sunday night, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards tweeted that the feeling was mutual: 

Field has long been a vocal advocate for the women’s health care organization. 

In an April New York Times interview with Misty Copeland, she called the GOP’s plan to defund Planned Parenthood “disgraceful.”
