On January 19th, 2019, WE MARCH AGAIN. #WomensWave
We will march the same day as hundreds of thousands of women in Washington as they take to the streets, we will stand in solidarity with people gathering all over Canada and the world that day in support of women's rights, and to put en END TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS. #endVAWG #AmINext

**SPIRIT AND ETHOS OF THE MARCH**
The purpose of this *non-violent*, *inclusive* and *intersectional* protest is to take a stand for and support women’s rights -- the rights of ALL women -- with women from all races, all religious communities, all political affiliations, cis or transgender and all sexual orientations. Violence, whether from or against the right-wing, left-wing, centre or independents, is not welcome and will not be condoned. We are unabashedly committed to intersectional feminism and inclusion:
- Women & Girls & Femmes & Gender Non-conforming & Gender fluid
- Men & Boys
- Families
- People of Color
- Immigrants
- LGBTQI+ Community
- Individuals with disabilities
- Sex Workers
- ALL religious communities
- Climate Change Advocates
- Anyone else who wants to come out in support!

Even in Canada, we still have so much work to do. To date, there is no country in the world that has yet achieved gender equality, but that does not mean we should give up striving towards it. Women’s rights are a crucial part of human rights! Unite! Show your solidarity!

Women's March Ottawa would like to acknowledge that Ottawa is on the unceded territory of the Algonquin people. We keep this acknowledgment at the forefront of our March and thank the Algonquin for allowing us to gather. And we thank the generations of Indigenous women who have taken care of this land before us and continue to fight for mother nature.
