WOMEN'S MARCH ON CHICAGO 2017
Women’s March on Chicago (WMC) is an organization advocating for women’s rights, promoting intersectional feminism, and challenging the political system regarding issues affecting women. WMC connects us as everyday champions of human rights for ourselves/others in our diversity. When we stand together, our strength multiplies and our voices must be heard. Fairness, justice, and equality require rigorous defense and promotion, and are not yet won. We recognize lack of fairness, justice, and equality are suffered by some much more than others. We need to work until fairness, justice, and equality are reality in all parts of society.
