Women’s Solidarity March 2020

Time for a woman

Women’s Solidarity March is the most visible event in support of women in Kharkiv. On this day women go out to the streets of the city to inspire, support and encourage each other to fight for their rights, the rights of others and those without a voice.

This year, the Women’s Solidarity March will be happening for the fifth time and will be held under the slogan “Time for a woman”.

We are going to remind the city, people and authorities that it is always the time to discuss and find decisions of the problems of gender inequality and the suppression of women, which turns in domestic and gender-based violence, unequal working conditions, abusive jokes, sexist advertising and more.

On the 8th of March at 14:00 we will start the march near the Universitet metro station: we will be gathering near the Palace of Children’s and Youth Creativity. The march will be walk down the Sumskaya St to the Constitution square.

Bring your posters, matter and inspiration, considering that any political symbols would be inappropriate.

Volunteers will be working during the March. It’s important to listen to their instructions.

Our time is long overdue, let’s unite in the fight!
