The call is for anyone who is against all discrimination
They have called it the Women’s March, since feminist groups are the main promoters of it because they fear the actions that the new president will take against groups that have already expressed a radical position, such as migrants.
Through their website, the organizers have made clear the purpose of the march:
“The rhetoric of the past electoral cycle has insulted, demonized and threatened many of us, immigrants from all states, Muslims, people who identify themselves as LGBTTI, African American disabled people; survivors of sexual violence, our communities feel fear and pain. We face the question of how to deal with national and international concern and fear.
We unite our diversity to show our presence in too large a number to ignore. The Women’s March in Washington will send a clear message to our new government on its first day in office, and also to the world: women’s rights are human rights. We are together, recognizing that the defense of the most marginalized is the defense of all of us.
We call on all human rights defenders to join the march. This March is the first step towards the unification of our communities. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society.”
