World March of Women

The World March of Women is an international feminist action movement connecting grass-roots groups and organizations working to eliminate the causes at the root of poverty and violence against women.

We struggle against all forms of inequality and discrimination directed at women. Our values and actions are directed at making political, economic and social change. They centre on the globalization of solidarity; equality between women and men, among women themselves and between peoples; the respect and recognition of diversity among women; the multiplicity of our strategies; the appreciation of women’s leadership; and the strength of alliances among women and with other progressive social movements.

De 2006 to 2010 considering the global context and the specific contribution the March could make, we have constructed our strategic plan and actions based on four areas of action: peace and the demilitarization of our planet; violence against women as a tool for maintaining patriarchy (control of women’s bodies, lives and sexuality, and commodification of women’s bodies); women’s work (formal and informal, overwork and exploitation of women’s work, and type of work and working conditions); and the common good (access to resources, water, land, environmental protection, and food sovereignty).
