Actresses Elizabeth Perkins and Frances Fisher were among those who came out Sunday morning to participate in the Take Back The Workplace March and #MeToo Survivors March & Rally in Hollywood.

Hundreds turned out for the march, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Big and Weeds star Perkins marched at the front of the line alongside former local Fox News reporter Lauren Sivan who is among the women who allege they were sexually harassed by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

As she marched along, Perkins, 56, at one point held up a handwritten sign that said: 'James Woods #MeToo.'

It's not known why she chose to carry it. 

DailyMail.com has reached out to reps for both Perkins and Woods seeking comment.

Perkins, who currently has a role on the hit NBC drama This Is Us, is very vocal on social media in her support for the women who have spoken up and shared their own experiences of being shamed and sexually abused.

She has previously disputed with Woods on Twitter for his political stance on issues such as gender. When he tweeted a photo of parents holding signs to support their gender creative child and criticized them, Perkins responded on her own Twitter feed, describing him as a 'misogynistic hatefully vile human being.'

In September, before the current scandal, actress Amber Tamblyn called out Woods on Twitter claiming he'd tried to pick her up when she was just 16.

The House and Joan Of Arcadia actress responded on social media after Woods criticized the film Call Me By Your Name for having a love story between two gay 17-year-old and 24-year-old characters. 

She tweeted: 'James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. "I'm 16" I said. "Even better" he said.'

Responding, Woods accused Tamblyn of lying.

Twitter user Amanda Kendall linked the movie's subject and Tamblyn's accusation by asking Woods a question about the morality and legalities of underage relationships: 'What makes a 24yo/17yo gay relationship inherently indecent but skeevy old guys trying to pick up a pair of 16 year old girls is okay?'

Woods responded with the tweet: 'The first is illegal. The second is a lie.'
