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 HAVE THE POWER#Les Femmes Ont Le Pouvoir
In Solidarity with the Women of France
THE FUTURE OF WOMEN & GIRLS IN EUROPE IS
IN THE HANDS OF FRENCH WOMEN
And it is happening now. From 20th April onward throughout the period of the French elections which begin on
Sunday 23rd April, we call on the Women of France to stand up and use their power; if not for them, for women all over the world.
Women of France make up 53% of the voting population and it is crucial that they vote in this election.
Marine Le Pen is a danger to the women of France and of Europe. As a European MP, Marine Le Pen was involved in many of the attempts to hinder women’s rights’ development in Europe. Marine Le Pen is not and never has been a women’s rights activist.
We know that when women unite, mountains can be moved. We have seen this many times in history before. Women in France did not get the power to vote until 1944.
To not use the power of voting that was fought over hundreds of years in France would be a mistake. We call on you, the women of France to use your power, use your voice, use your vote. The stakes of the rights of women and girls in France could not be higher.
We ask you, women of Europe and of the world, to stand with us in support of the Women of France in Freedom, Equality, and Sorority.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
- Take a Video or a photo showing your support.
- Say (or write) the words “Les Femmes Ont Le Pouvoir” or “Women Have the Power” on any platform you may have access to, and encourage French women to vote.
- Post your video/photo using the hashtags:
Feel free to use and share our graphics widely on social media.
Please let progressive women in France know you stand with them, and encourage the people of France to get out to the polls and vote against the politics of division.
LET'S SHOW THE WORLD OUR MOVEMENT IS NOT STOPPING.
