Happening in Hamilton – Women’s March

«We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.” — Malala Yousafzai

**PLEASE NOTE: This is the official #WomensMarch and #WMWCanada page for the Hamilton local solidarity event. It is *not* the contingent heading down to Washington, D.C. See the end of the event description for a link to that page.

THIS MARCH IS INCLUSIVE AND ALL ARE WELCOME.
On January 21 2017, the first day of Donald Trump’s Presidency, women-led marches, welcoming all participants, will take place across the world, with the largest expected in Washington D.C… We call on people of all genders to gather in Hamilton as part of an international day of action in solidarity.

The purpose of this *non-violent*, *inclusive* and *intersectional* protest is to take a stand for and support women’s rights — the rights of ALL women — with women from all races, all religious communities, all political affiliations, cis or transgender and all sexual orientations. Violence, whether from or against the right-wing, left-wing, centre or independents, is not welcome and will not be condoned. We are unabashedly committed to intersectional feminism and inclusion.

We will gather, wherever we are, for the protection of our fundamental rights and for the safeguarding of freedoms threatened by recent political events. We unite and stand together for the dignity and equality of all peoples, for the safety and health of our planet and for the strength of our vibrant and diverse communities.

We will come together in the spirit of democracy, honouring the champions of human rights who have gone before us. Please spread the word, so that our numbers are too great to ignore and the message to the world is clear.The politics of fear and division have no place in 2017.

This event is just the beginning.

Unite with us. Stand in solidarity.
