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 coming 100 days, we will suggest and publish 10 actions, one by one, that YOU can take, in order to continue the amazing momentum and optimism we generated during the march.
IT STARTS TODAY!
Our new initiative 10 ACTIONS (over 100 days) has officially launched.
We invite YOU (people of all genders, races, identities, ages, cultures and creeds) to join our resounding chorus!
