Women's March London

Being Nasty

Now is the time to test how truly nasty we can be. In the aftermath of this glorious wave of protests, I want to use my voice, and my privilege, to carry that feeling I had when the sign was in my hand. To speak out for others who don't recognise themselves in an ever-shifting political landscape, where the elite continue to thrive, and the disadvantaged continue to be bulldozed in the name of progress.

When Donald Trump declared last year that women who have abortions should be punished, he met widespread condemnation. Yet in the UK we have no right to be smug. In our country today, women can and are being punished for having an abortion.

I Am Marching On Saturday Because I Refuse To Let Hate Win

I'll be marching on Saturday because the first rule of making a change is to do something about it. I'll be marching to encourage all the people who have looked at the world lately and thought: "Someone should really do something about this" - to believe that on Saturday that person can be them.

As a human, woman and feminist, I support the march. As a mother, I feel it is fundamental for me to join the protest, to show solidarity with people the world over, to register discontent with institutionalised prejudice and casual misogyny, but also to feel good about our children's future.

I Don't Go On Many Marches - But The Women's March Is The Right Time, The Right Place And The Right Cause

I don't always go on marches. I am an activist, a doer and that weaves through my life in lots of different ways. But sometimes, a march or an opportunity comes and you know it is the right one for you. The right time, the right place, the right cause. The Women's March on London is one of those moments for me.

Women Are Tearing Down The Walls That Divide Us

Change will happen when we join together to stand up to and fight for justice against misogyny, racism, homophobia, Islamophobia and all forms of bigotry and hatred, taking our negative feelings of despondency and channeling them into positive affirmative action. So let's come together to march on London, not in protest but in celebration of diversity, equality and peace.

As A Woman Of Colour, This Is What Women's March London Means To Me

It's about honouring my mother and the struggles she went through to give us a better life. And it's about representing my female Asian community because, as silly as it sounds, you won't know you can do something until you see someone like you doing it. It's so when my niece grows up, she won't hesitate to lace her boots up and march because she's already seen me do it.

Why I March

Thousands of women in the UK, right now, are denied the basic human right of safety in their own homes. They are robbed of their autonomy. They and their children are thrown in harm's way, again and again, by systems that should protect them but instead let them down. This is happening because when sexism asserts itself, not enough people say no. And then women are robbed of the power to say no. Well, we have that power and we are using it. That's why I march.

Why The Women's March Should Matter To Us All

When Donald Trump is sworn in as US President on Friday 20 January, it will be the culmination of a campaign that has traded in division and fear. In this climate of growing intolerance, it is more important than ever for those of us who believe in equality to stand up and be counted.

It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World - So Get Up And Change It On 21 January

Why is The Equality Trust supporting the Women's March on London? Well that's a no-brainer if you know your economics. We may have a female prime minister, but we still have a gender pay gap. Many women's refuges are being lost and young women and girls are suffering sexism in school corridors. None of this is conducive to equality or being economically brutal, female productivity.

Women's March London: An Opportunity To Get Offline, Get Out On The Streets And Fight Back Together

The Women's March is an attempt to create the conditions for different sorts of conversations than the ones that exploit fear and uncertainty and lead to division and social turbulence. It is an attempt towards opening up a space where we can come together, think together, act together for the benefit of us all.
