    Women's March Anniversary Events

    March to the Ballot Box!

    On the first day of the Trump Administration, the Women's March on Washington sent a bold message seen and heard around the world.

    The Democrats Abroad Global Women’s Caucus and DA groups across the globe are organizing celebrations and voter registration/membership drives throughout the entire anniversary weekend of January 20-21, 2018.

    The purpose of these events is to rekindle the excitement and confidence that the 2017 Women’s March generated and channel that energy to voting in the 2018 Mid-term Elections.  These events will help turn marchers and resisters into voters and members!

    Our message is “keep marching to the ballot box!"

    Our mood is celebratory, defiant, constructive, and positive.

    Join us  as we participate in  commemorative events around the world and set the tone for resistance in this all important election year!

    (Bring out your pussy hats!)

    We came together as a movement a year ago. We rose, millions strong, around the world to answer the call against injustice. Against racism. Against misogyny. Against hatred.

    In 2017 we stood against the hateful rise of fascism and nationalism. We stood for the rights of refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers.

    We called on governments to hear our votes and to lead with courage as they create policies that affect us all. And we are still standing.

    We march forward into 2018 in the pursuit of a united world — united by love over fear, compassion over hate, and justice in the face of every form of injustice. We stand against all those who seek to divide humanity by walls of any form and we stand for peace.

    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: WE ARE MARCHING TO THE BALLOT BOX THIS YEAR TO PUT AN END TO THE MADNESS IN THE WHITE HOUSE. Click here to request your ballot:  VoteFromAbroad.org

    The Rally will be live-streamed from 2:30 to 4:30 with interviews and visuals. Just follow this  link:

    Paris is also slated to be on the Women’s March Global stream at 3PM, as the stream goes around the world! Tune in!
