WOMEN’S MARCH IN THE PARK
COME ANGRY * LEAVE INSPIRED * MAKE CHANGE
In January we came together for the Women’s March Sydney – an uplifting affirmation that women and their allies are standing up and demanding equality. 99 days since our history-making march, we are raising our voices again on 29 April 2017.
We invite all who joined us in January – and all who wish they had – to come together in solidarity and sisterhood to raise our voices in defence of women’s safety and health.
Bring your signs and your picnic blankets to join us for a mass sit-in.
WOMEN’S MARCH IN THE PARK will be a loud and proud show of community support for our right to assert control over our bodies.
At the March we pledged to volunteer in our communities, to pay attention to what our elected officials are doing and speak out, and to support women in the arts, politics, business and STEM.
We have been steadily working to fulfil our commitment to that pledge, and recognise that equality is a myth as long as women cannot control our health and safety.
Safety denied is equality deferred: Cuts to women’s shelters, the privatisation of rape victim phone counselling services, no legislated safe access zones for reproductive health services, and the shameful death toll of women murdered in domestic violence altercations – we live in a state of emergency.
We acknowledge that we will be gathering on Gadigal land and pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging.
