We Marched for a New World – Sister March Shipley

Today we marched.  We marched in solidarity for the women and men of America, for the protection of women’s rights, human rights.  We marched for the world we will leave our children.

For a world where its okay to be a woman and stand up for what you believe in.  Where it’s okay to call yourself a feminist.  Where no means no, and rape isn’t a joke.  A world in which boys and girls love their bodies whatever the size, shape, colour or ability.  Where boys can have long hair, talk about their feelings and cry.  And girls speak out, play sport and get angry.  Where children are children and pink and blue are just colours. For a world that recognises the worth of women and mothers.  For reproductive choice and sexual freedom.  A world full of female leaders, sporting heroes, scientists and visionary thinkers.  Full of male ballet dancers, birth workers and stay at home fathers.  For a world where we don’t have to keep fighting for equality.

We marched for a world under threat.  For women all over the world oppressed, discriminated against and marginalised.  For girls and boys, and their future.

We marched for Bee.

    Great photos! I really wanted to come on the Shipley march but had already made other commitments, I’m glad it was so well attended. Well done for setting Bee an example of political activism!

    We did too, in Philly. It was awesome and an amazing education for our little ones. The first of many marches and peaceful protests…mixed with phone calls, petitions and whatever else it may take to keep the world safe for our kids. Oy vey. #DreamTeam

    It’s so important to stand up for what you believe in and for the world you want your children to have. Thank you so much for marching, for all of us, for all of our children. Thank you so much for standing up for what is right and for sharing it with us at #PostsFromTheHeart

    Thank you. I am American and took my 8 year old daughter to the London March. It was absolutely something that I had to do and something she needed to experience. It made my heart sing to see so many supporters from around the world protesting against this awful backwards slide we are seeing.

      The London March looked incredible. Just glad we could do our bit in our little town.
