JANUARY 19-20, 2019.
Women’s March Global has announced its theme for their Anniversary March on January 19-20, 2019 known as the #WomensWave. The organisation, in alliance with its worldwide Chapters, has set the event’s theme to END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced either physical or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime. This alarming statistic is what drives Women’s March Global and their communities to bring attention to the issue, understand its prevalence around the world and develop action-oriented solutions and steps that will enable women to have a voice, and ultimately contribute to their peace and safety.
Women’s March Global brings together a passionate, diverse global community of women and allies who seek to create a future of equality, justice, and compassion for all. Their global efforts are in spirit of the H.E.R.S. framework which advocates for the health, economic security, representation and safety of women worldwide. Women’s March Global recently launched its online Platform that connects the six million people that marched in 2017 and 2018. The Platform is an inclusive, diverse, flexible, transparent and grassroots driven space that enables activists, partner organisations and Women’s March Global Chapters to collaborate with like-minded changemakers, share their events and actions, and generate support across both local and global communities.
