We did it! On January 21, over 5 million of us worldwide, and over 100,000 in London, came to march, speak and make our voices heard. But it doesn’t end here - now is not the time to hang up our marching shoes - it’s time to get our friends, family and community together and make history.
Every 10 days, over the next 100, we will take action on an issue we all care about, STARTING TODAY.
WOMEN'S WEEK OF ACTION
DAY WITHOUT A WOMAN
This Wednesday March 8 is International Women's Day, when women across the World stand together and take groundbreaking action to drive change for women. This IWD theme asks us to #BeBoldForChange where “each one of us - with women, men and non-binary people joining forces - can be a leader within our own sphere of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over.”
This week as part of ACTION 5, Women’s March London invites you to participate, in a manner of your choosing, in an event corresponding with IWD / Day Without a Woman.

As well as going out and getting involved, you can also participate in more introspective ways:
we have compiled a reading list for those who wish to support women by consuming material written by women (particularly Women of Colour) at the forefront of their respective fields of social activism, politics, economics, science & tech, law, the arts etc.
We' ve also put together some handy statistics on Women's standing in and impact on the workplace and the Economy.
