Geneva Women's March for Dignity, Jardin Anglais, 1204 Genève Genève, Suisse, Samstag, 21. Januar 2017

On January 21, 2017, we invite you to march with us in GENEVA as part of the Global Women’s March, a series of solidarity marches around the world inspired by the Women’s March on Washington.

Global and US women stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our societies. We invite you to march with us across the globe, in the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us and who stand among us today.

The mission of the Global Women’s Marches is not only to stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our families and our environment -- it is also to build relationships and mend the divides between our communities. Only together can we march towards a world that respects the civil rights of all of its citizens. The rhetoric of elections in many countries in recent years and of the last US election cycle in particular has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us. There has been a profound deepening of the divisions in many countries. Etched in history, these divisions cleave us from one another across the lines of racial, ethnic, religious, economic, social and sexual identity. We seek to address these divisions and stand together in the **** of injustice. Together we will raise our voices in the service of all people.

We join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore, to send a bold message to the new US administration on their first day in office. We recognize that many of the decisions they adopt will have serious and lasting global repercussions. We will march to signal to decision-makers in our communities around the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending us all.

We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is a significant step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully to make our voices heard while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.

The Global Women’s March is the first step to beginning the next chapter in the global non-violent civil rights movement that we are now creating in response to the wave of xenophobia, sexism, racism, isolationism and nationalism expressed in national elections across the globe in recent years.

This challenging and ambitious goal requires our commitment and action far beyond January 21st 2017. The Global Women’s March is just the first step; what comes after is up to us ALL.

Here in Geneva, the issues we will be addressing going forward will be: 1. Women's rights are human rights: Promoting the #HERS framework for women's rights - Health Economic Representation and Safety - while recognizing the cross-cutting importance of addressing climate change. 2. Protecting the rights of minorities of all kinds including refugees and migrants. 3. Defending and promoting democracy and democratic institutions in Eastern and Western Europe.

PLEASE SHARE and help us add marchers and marches! As of 5 January 2017, there are more than 45 marches planned around the world and one in each US state. Search the database here for the march near you:
