The Women’s March was a worldwide protest against bigotry, misogyny, and discrimination that took place on the 21st January 2017.
The Women’s March was born in the United States following the election of Donald Trump. Upset and alarmed by the bigoted, sexist, and hateful rhetoric of his campaign, people took to the streets following his inauguration to show their support for those marginalised and threatened by regressive political agendas.
Across the world sister solidarity marches occurred in hundreds of cities across all seven continents. The Women’s Marches were a world-wide endorsement of equality, civility, and human rights. An estimated 5 million people marched that day, making the Women’s March the largest mass political protest in history to date.
Women’s March Sydney drew 10,000 concerned people who marched to raise our voices against sexism, bigotry, and racism. Check our march coverage for further details.
Women’s March Sydney has been working since March day to organise ongoing actions in support of equality, civility, and justice. We will not rest while regressive political platforms around the world continue to promote hatred, discrimination, and violence against any marginalised group.
Join us in our efforts and help us make the world a safer, more just, and civil place.
