March to peacefully show strength, power, and courage, and to demonstrate disapproval of the new President's agenda of racism, fear, hate, misogyny, discrimination, and values.

ALL women, including women of all socio-economic positions, races, religions, ethnicities, national origins, disabilities, and ALL LGBTQ+, gender non-conforming AND ALL families, and feminist men, are invited to march on Washington DC the day following the inauguration of the President elect. This march is a show of solidarity to demand safety and health in a time when our country is marginalizing us and making sexual assault an electable and forgiveable norm. We align with all POC and LGBTQ causes, and we will show our support in a non-violent, peaceful protest.

Spread the word! Let the country and world know we stand with ALL women. No woman is free unless all women are free.
