Deets about MWR:
Million Women Rise is a coalition of individual women and representatives from the Women’s Voluntary and Community Sector who have come together to organise an annual national demonstration against male violence which coincides with International Women’s Day in March each year.
On the demonstration, we celebrate and honour women’s activism, courage and achievements and continued struggle against global male violence in all its forms. Million Women Rise is an expression of women’s continued resistance and struggle against global male violence. The first demonstration in 2008 saw 5000 women and children take to the streets of London. It was the largest, recent demonstration of women in UK history and the most diverse demonstration many of us had ever attended. Because male violence continues, so too does Million Women Rise and women and children marched again in 2009.
