On the 1 year anniversary of our history making March we will take to the streets to speak up against the ongoing discrimination, harassment, and assault against women around the globe. On the 1 year anniversary of our March we will join together again to take a stand for women.
On January 21st 2018, Women’s March Sydney is inviting everyone who believes in equality, safety, and respect to join us in creating a human chain of individuals linking hands through communities all across Australia.
Our human chain will be a show of strength and solidarity. Our chain will stand as a statement that we are tired of being demeaned, bullied, and violated. Our chain will say no to the ongoing harassment and violence.
Our chain will show that together we are unbroken.

JOIN HANDS. FIGHT BACK.
Our chain will start in Hyde Park South, on January 21st 2018 at 11am.
We’re thrilled to welcome back our MC from March in the Park, Karen James. She will kick proceedings off and welcome our speakers. We will then form the chain, and the event will finish with our amazing performers.
Women’s March Sydney are working with Women’s March groups in Melbourne and Brisbane to build chains of solidarity around the entire continent!
We invite any community interested in building a chain to contact us. We will provide a tool kit for building your own local chain.
Are you interested in helping run a hub in your local area? Get in touch.
Is this event for women only?
No. Women’s March Sydney and all of our events are fully inclusive. We encourage everyone to join us in taking a stand against sexual harassment, assault, and violence against women.
Will the event be accessible?
Women’s March Sydney is committed to making our events safe, accessible, and comfortable for everyone.
Unbroken takes place in Hyde Park South, which has ramp access on Elizabeth St (near Bathurst St). For more information please see the City of Sydney Accessibility Map: http://maps.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/accessibility-map/
AUSLAN translators will be present and we will have a dedicated space for those that need to be near the stage.
When forming the human chain, we will have a dedicated space for those with accessibility requirements.
Our friendly volunteers are also there on the day to assist. If you have any questions ahead of time please contact us.
I want to participate, but I’m not comfortable linking hands with a stranger.
We understand that not everyone will be comfortable with linking hands with someone they don’t know. We invite you to come with friends or family and link hands with them. You can also stand in the chain and not link hands, or bring a sign and hold one end with the person next to you holding the other.
