Women's March Rome
In the aftermath of the inaugurations of Donald Trump in the United States, and in opposition to protectionism and prejudice everywhere, we invite you to join us a the Pantheon, Saturday, January 21, 11 am, 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. The mission of 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. 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.
