Women's March on Washington

January 20, 2017, 10:00am - 5:00pm

 

In every aspect of her life, a woman's autonomy, freedom, and opportunities are shaped by the degree to which her nation's laws uphold gender equality, and which cultural practices limit her ability to participate in decision making at the family, the national and country levels. On January 21st, in the spirit of unifying the global women’s movement around shared goals based in universal human rights, Women’s Learning Partnership (WLP) will join the Women’s March on Washington and will march in solidarity for the shared values of equality, tolerance, democracy, human rights and diversity and against discriminatory family, civil, and penal laws.
