**SPIRIT AND ETHOS OF LOCAL MARCHES**
This is an INCLUSIVE, INTERSECTIONAL march, and EVERYONE, around the world, who supports women's rights are welcome.
We are committed to intersectional feminism and inclusion:
- Women & Girls & Femmes & GNC & GF
- Men & Boys
- People of Color
- LGBTQI+ Community
- Individuals with disabilities
- ALL religious communities
- Climate Change Advocates
- Anyone else who wants to come out in support!
The purpose of this *non-violent*, *inclusive* and *intersectional* event is to take a stand for and support women's rights -- the rights of ALL women -- with women from all races, all religious communities, all political affiliations, cis or transgendered and all sexual orientations. Violence, whether from or against the right-wing, left-wing, centre or independents, is not welcome and will not be condoned.
To date, there is no country in the world that has yet achieved gender equality, but that does not mean we should give up striving towards it. We will not tolerate any discrimination or victimization of women or any violation of women's rights, whether through words, actions or policies. We will not allow our hard-won rights to be trampled on and we will not be stopped in our pursuit of intersectional, substantive equality! "Equal enough" is NOT enough! We hope to see our brothers, fathers, sons, husbands and other male allies marching with us -- women's rights are human rights! This event is just the beginning.
