WOMEN'S MARCH ON LONDON 

The US election proved a catalyst for a grassroots movement of women to assert the positive values that the politics of fear denies.  On January 21 2017, the first day of Donald Trump’s Presidency, women-led marches, welcoming all participants, took place across the world, with the largest in Washington D.C..  We, the organisers of the London march, called on people of all genders to march in London as part of an international day of action in solidarity.

We marched for the protection of our fundamental rights and for the safeguarding of freedoms threatened by recent political events. We united and stood together for the dignity and equality of all peoples, for the safety and health of our planet and for the strength of our vibrant and diverse communities.

We came together in the spirit of democracy, honouring the champions of human rights who have gone before us. Our numbers were- and still are - too great to ignore. and the message to the world is clear: We're here, and we aren't going anywhere! Find our Guiding Principles HERE

Complacency is not an option, and so we surge forward anew.
Over the past year, we have suggested numerous actions  that YOU can take, in order to continue the amazing momentum and optimism we generated during the march.

Now in 2018, the Centenary year of some women getting the vote we are still marching.

On January 19 2019 , we invite YOU (people of all genders, races, identities, ages, faith and no faith, cultures and creeds) to join our Rally for #WEARECHANGE. Join us

Reminiscent of the 1912 Bread & Roses protests which revolutionised workers’ rights for women, Women’s March London will galvanise thousands for a Bread & Roses rally against Austerity in the United Kingdom. It is the common denominator in the rise of economic oppression, violence against women, gender pay gap, racism, fascism, institutional sexual harassment, hostile environment and Brexit. Mostly impacting marginalised groups of people in the United Kingdom who are the many not the few. 

With the imminence of Brexit, we want austerity to end and are demanding specific assurances from the UK government. It is time to eliminate the dividing line between the ‘Haves’ and ‘Have Nots’. Equality demands that we all get to thrive and not just survive. We demand Prosperity not Austerity

Protesters will join the #WeAreChange call for action which is (i) a PLEDGE to protect and serve each other with love, unity and solidarity; (ii) a PROMISE to exercise our civic duty to vote in every circumstance that will shape a progressive society; and (iii) a CONVICTION to call out any racism or form of phobia we see online and offline. 

The Bread & Roses Jan 19 rally will replicate the defiance and celebration of previous marches and rallies by Women’s March London, which led to thousands of people taking to the streets of central London. It will see people from diverse communities, faiths, sex, race, political affiliations and backgrounds stand up and show up to speak with one voice #WeAreChange.
