Women’s March Copenhagen (CPH) / København shares the vision and mission developed by the national Women’s March organizers in the United States, namely “supporting the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities."
WM CPH stands in solidarity with people around the world to promote equality and the protection of the rights of women and marginalized groups. Nationalist, racist, and misogynistic trends are growing worldwide and threaten the most marginalized groups in our societies including women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, the LGBTQIA community, and people with disabilities. The violence of the global capitalist system only upholds and strengthens these dangerous trends. As the neo-liberal agenda pushes the notion of ‘personal responsibility’, we call for collective responsibility in responding to contemporary socio-economic inequalities.
We recognize that everyone does not fit in to the gender binary; we stand under the Women's March banner in solidarity with the global movement, and because women still widely earn less than men and suffer the vast share of sexual, physical, and psychological harassment - despite being a majority of the global population.
We warmly welcome everyone who shares these values to join us. We hope that WM CPH offers a space to build a stronger community of support, care, and awareness within Denmark.
