The National Women’s Health Network is no stranger to demonstrations, rallies, and marches. We’ve made it a point to be at the forefront, advocating on behalf of women. On January 21st, the Women’s March on Washington will be taking place. The NWHN supports the mission of the Women’s March and is proud to join in this effort to send a bold message to the new government that women’s rights are human rights.
We are inspired by the hundreds of thousands of supporters of women’s rights who have spontaneously engaged in the March. We applaud the organizers for taking into account the multiple ways in which women experience oppression and their recognition that all supporters of women’s rights need to consciously support women of color, LGBTQ folks, people with disabilities, immigrants, Muslims and other religious minorities who have been targeted for hateful rhetoric.
We understand that rallying in Washington while the city is full of Trump supporters may expose marchers from these communities to abusive interactions. Sister marches are being organized in dozens of cities in nearly every state. We encourage NWHN members to show up for the Women’s March, or related activities, wherever is best for them.
If you would like to join the NWHN at the Women’s March in Washington, DC, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to make it to the March, you can show your support virtually by using hashtag #womensmarch.
