The March for Our Human Rights is an anniversary march of the Global Women’s March that began January 2017. Since then this women’s rights movement has spread worldwide.
We are here because of the work of women who have fought for decades for the rights we have today. We cannot go back. We must speak out. We must stand united.
The March for Our Human Rights is the first women’s rights march of the next decade.
We must remind those in power that women and allies globally are united and we will continue to resist and speak out against oppression and silencing.
On 18 January 2020, millions of women and allies around the world will join the fourth annual March of Women’s March Global, a yearly Event that brings together all those who are committed to fighting for equality, justice, and women’s human rights worldwide. 2020’s Event, March for Our Human Rights, will focus on bodily autonomy, which is the right to have control over one’s own body without coercion or external pressures. This includes abortion rights, sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR), sexual consent, period equality, family planning, access to healthcare services and information, and more.
We will gather together in Bangkok to hear from speakers, engage in social media campaigns, post card writing campaigns and sign making. We will also be assisting US citizens request their absentee ballots for the upcoming US election.
