WILPF at the Women's March

On 21 January, WILPF joined the Women's March on Washington. Our members participated in the march in Washington, DC and around the world.

The marches are part of an international movement uniting people who oppose the rising rhetoric of far-right populism around the world and defend human rights, equality, dignity, and justice for all. The official platform of the March reflects the intersectionality of gender, race, and economics and respects women's and LGBTQIA rights as human rights.
