    The "Les Miserables" actress, 31, grabbed a megaphone and roused the crowd during the rally.

    The Nigerian schoolchildren were kidnapped in mid-April and abducted from the town of Chibok by the radical group Boko Haram, whose name means "Western education is forbidden." Using the hashtag "#Bring Back Our Girls," celebrities from Reese Witherspoon to Alicia Keys to Angelina Jolie and more have joined forces to spread the word.
