4 JANUARY 2017

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.

The Fawcett Society will be joining people of all genders to march in London as part of an international day of solidarity. We will be marching 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.

Fawcett and the march organisers would love for you to join us and help spread the word, so that our numbers are too great to ignore and the message to the world is clear.

If you can join us and would like to walk with other Fawcett members, we will meet at Grosvenor Square in front of the Frankin D Roosevelt statue and will be bearing a Fawcett Society banner so you should be able spot us!

To celebrate 150 years of the Fawcett Society we have produced a timeline showing significant dates for the women's rights movement.
