A Word of Caution

 

As you fill out your event details, please consider your local conditions and take into account  security measures that may be appropriate for your event such as not adding the name of organizers or the location of the event. Also consider the possibility that your event could draw an unanticipated number of participants as the result of being listed on our global site.  Please assure you can handle any such influx (or leave your location blank), and remain aware of provocateurs who may infiltrate your operations.

 

Good Luck, Be Safe, Be Substantive and Potent...and above all,

HAVE FUN!!!!!

500 Women Scientists to March 
in 51 cities, 29 states plus DC, and 3 countries
 
 
Their Pledge:
 
An open letter from women of science:
 
 
Science is foundational in a progressive society, fuels innovation, and touches the lives of every person on this planet. The anti-knowledge and anti-science sentiments expressed repeatedly during the U.S. presidential election threaten the very foundations of our society. Our work as scientists and our values as human beings are under attack. We fear that the scientific progress and momentum in tackling our biggest challenges, including staving off the worst impacts of climate change, will be severely hindered under this next U.S. administration. Our planet cannot afford to lose any time.
 
In this new era of anti-science and misinformation, we as women scientists re-affirm our commitment to build a more inclusive society and scientific enterprise. We reject the hateful rhetoric that was given a voice during the U.S. presidential election and which targeted minority groups, women, LGBTQIA, immigrants, and people with disabilities, and attempted to discredit the role of science in our society. Many of us feel personally threatened by this divisive and destructive rhetoric and have turned to each other for understanding, strength, and a path forward. We are members of racial, ethnic, and religious minority groups. We are immigrants. We are people with disabilities. We are LGBTQIA. We are scientists. We are women.
 
Across the globe, women in science face discrimination, unequal pay, and reduced opportunities. Our work to overcome the longer-term degradation of the role science plays in society did not start with this election, but this election has re-ignited our efforts. As women scientists, we are in the position to take action to increase diversity in science and other disciplines. We resolve to continue our pursuits with renewed passion and to find innovative solutions to the problems we face in the U.S. and abroad. Together, we pledge to:
 
  • Identify and acknowledge structural inequalities and biases that affect the potential of all individuals to fulfill their goals;
  • Push for equality and stand up to inequality, discrimination, and aggression;
  • Push to strengthen the support for traditionally under-represented groups to fully participate in and become leaders in science;
  • Support the education and careers of all scientists;
  • Step outside of our research disciplines to communicate our science and engage with the public;
  • Use every day as an opportunity to demonstrate to young girls and women that they are welcome and needed in science;
  • Set examples through mentorship and through fostering an atmosphere of encouragement and collaboration, not one of divisiveness;
  • Use the language of science to bridge the divides that separate societies and to enhance global diplomacy.
 
Today, we invite the women in science and our colleagues to declare our support to each other and to all minorities, immigrants, people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA. Our scientific work may be global, yet we will take action in our own communities and we will work towards an inclusive society, where science and knowledge can be embraced and everyone has the opportunity to reach their potential.
 
 

AS WOMEN IN SCIENCE, AS ROLE MODELS TO YOUNG GIRLS AND WOMEN, AS LEADERS IN OUR COMMUNITIES, WE ACCEPT THIS CHALLENGE. JOIN US.    500WomenInScience.org

Thrilled to have Forbes say this about Women's March:

 

"The Women’s March organizers are some of the most amazing entrepreneurs

America has ever seen."

Niiiice!  Thanks, Forbes!

Although, it should be stated that Women's March Global is comprised of an international team.

Good Day!

 

1 Day Until March!

 

​The final stats for non-US global sister actions:  74 countries, 183 cities

and  a total of 2,053, 370 registered  participants (including in the U.S.)!

 

We had several early actions kick off this morning in

Tokyo and Osaka, Japan; Antartica(!); Brussels, Belgium; Miraflores Peru; and Madrid, Spain. 

Congratulations to these successful marches!

 

The 21st actions begin tomorrow Down Under, and will be rolling across the time zones toward Washington throughout the day.  

By the time Women's March reaches Washington, I hope all the world's eyes will be on DC,

and that you-know-who will feel them.
