Hello.

 

2 Days Until March!

 

A Few Updates:

 

It is no longer possible to self-register marches or solidarity events on the WM sister-march website.

​If you have an event you still would like to organize, please PM me here, and I will put you in touch with an organizer.  

 

Please remember that we are shining a light on and organizing around Women's Rights globally,

and would love to use this opportunity to highlight pertinent *local* issues that impact women and other marginalized groups.

Women's March Global does not partner with events that are simply anti-Trump.

Women's March Global is less protest, and more a global movement to establish

actionable unity between women's  rights groups around the world.  

We are standing up a persistent network and will continue with efforts beyond the march.

 

Lastly, we are working with FaceBook to field a global live stream the day of the event.

If you are interested in this program and already have an event registered, please speak 

to your organizer for more information.  I understand there are some limits on where streams

are able to originate, but I do not have those details.

 

Thank you!

 

March On!

Wow,DC. You've done great with the organizing & the H.E.R.S. framework.
Looks like it's a great day to stand together for womens' rights.
I'm going to be able to attend locally. The course I am attending is ending early & we will be making banners. A lot of people traveling to DC. ⏳

Oh Hestia!

 

I am SO excited to hear that you are involved !!!!

I was unsure anyone here was interested other than Plwheel.

Do I understand correctly that you are traveling to DC, or are you participating in your locale?

If you are engaging in a sister event, may I ask where?

 I would love to look it up on our map and read about your local event.

 

I am so thrilled you are involved :-)  Thank you!

Yes, this is an amazing thing.  I feel very grateful to be engaged.

Please consider remaining a part of the global movement after the marches.

 

I would love to see you at the event. If that does not happen in actuality, 

then I hope you will at least post a few photos of your time (with your banners!) !

You  might consider StoryCorps, or submitting for the documentary film. :-)

These will both become a part of the historical record.  And, this is a historical event!

 

 

Wonderful :-) I am so pleased you are present and accounted for!

Thank you.  And, HAVE FUN!  :D

....cont...

I just have to add that I am working with extraordinary women in the global arm of Women's March.

They are so vital and talented and committed and competent.

It is an honor to be in their presence and to work with them.

This entire global event has been organized by women in less than 60 days! 

It is extraordinary!  

Just imagine what women could do with this planet if given free reign to act everywhere!

We must fight for this right.

Humanity must not be allowed to slaughter itself due to a lack of vision.

 

March On!

A lot of people I know will be travelling by bus to DC.
I'll try to get some pictures from my local event, although I don't have the correct format for the video with my droid.
I'm just going with the flow..♒

Good day!

 

2 Days Until March!

 

 

LAST CALL!

 

UPDATED GUIDELINES FOR REGISTERING EVENTS (updated 1/19):

 

We have had a lot of last-minute requests for Marches across the world to be formally affiliated as “sister marches” by being listed on the Sister March website.   We are working through these and getting them added as fast as possible. 

 

Note that we will be halting our processing of additions at midnight EST on 1/19 in order to concentrate on supporting the Marches themselves. We may be able to retroactively add your March to this site for posterity and the historical record,  so please check back for updates after 1/21 if you don’t see it go up before then.

 

 

IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN HOSTING A SOLIDARITY EVENT, PLEASE GO, TODAY, TO WWW.WOMENSMARCH.COM/GLOBAL TO REGISTER

 

Thank you!

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."

http://www.forbes.co...t/#1ac3ced216fe

 

Niiiice!  Thanks, Forbes!

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

Women's March welcomes an international expedition of eco-minded visitors,

who will hold a  ship-board solidarity action in the international waters off of the coast of...wait for it...

Antarctica!

We are now on all seven continents!

 

 

Women’s marches, occurring across seven continents, include a focus on environment

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.   

Follow the global stream and upload your photos and videos at:

MARCH ON!!!!!!!

This is the best, and so sadly true.
