Women’s March Global Anniversary: Look Back, March Forward

Women’s March Global is proud and excited to announce the pledge and campaign that will carry us into 2018: Look Back, March Forward.

Look Back, March Forward will be a celebration of the achievements of this global network held worldwide and a pledge to renewed and continued resistance in 2018. We will pledge to commit not only to marching, but direct action and engagement so that we can bring forth real change in our Global and local communities. Many of you have been asking how you can participate and mark this day of remembrance of Global Sisterhood. There are three ways you can participate:

THREE WAYS YOU CAN PARTICIPATE on JAN 21

3. Help Amplify our Global Women’s March Voice

Join Women’s March Global on social media on the weekend of 20th — 21st Jan 2018 and share your stories of resistance on our social media channels by:

Recording a video talking about your year of resistance and the pledge of action you will take for 2018. Use the hashtag #LookBackMarchForward and#ThisIsGlobal.

Emailing us images of your action or event in real time action@wmglobal.org

Sharing our livestream and other actions with your network!

On January 21, 2017, over six million women and allies, in over 600 cities, on every continent, joined forces to march for women’s rights and human rights. Women’s March Global came together after the march and we have formed a grassroots coalition of sister marches that have continued to mobilise and push forward with this work of resistance. Our sister marches stood against hate in global elections and rallied to get women to vote; they have shared the stories of refugees and asylum seekers; they have demanded an end to violence against women and girls worldwide; and they have resisted the rise of the xenophobia and nationalism that is taking place across the world.

We are a grassroots coalition and we have together built a network that continues to unite and fight for the freedom and liberation of all people worldwide. Recently we ended our 16 Days of Global campaign that saw stories of this movement being shared far and wide, and a global campaign to End Slavery in Libya reach over 1 Million people — and we are just getting started.

This resistance needs all of us, every day, fighting for the collective liberation of all people. Because none of us are free until ALL of us are free.
