Women’s rights are human rights, regardless of a woman’s race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender expression, sex assigned at birth, economic status, age and/or disability. In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we are joining the Women’s March on Washington to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore and to send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office. We Stand Together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country, and that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
The Women’s March on Washington (WMW) is for any person, regardless of gender, who believes women’s rights are human rights.
