At The Little Market, our mission is to support dignified income opportunities for individuals in underserved communities all over the world. A core part of that mission is to raise awareness around human rights and social justice. Here on Cultural Exchange, we share avenues in which our readers can use their voices to uplift others. This week, we are spotlighting the upcoming Women’s March.
The History Behind the Women’s March
On Jan. 17, 2017, approximately 5 million individuals came together across the United States, marking the largest single-day public demonstration in U.S. history. They were accompanied by activists across the world including in Kenya, Germany, India, Argentina, and France. Advocates raised their voices in solidarity for women’s rights, noting women’s rights are human rights, and equal rights for all, no matter the background or any identifying factors.
A women-led movement, the core Unity Principles of the Women’s March are:
- Ending Violence
- Reproductive Rights
- LGBTQIA Rights
- Workers’ Rights
- Civil Rights
- Disability Rights
- Immigrant Rights
- Environmental Justice
Women’s March LA
Since 2017, activists and advocates have marched annually in Los Angeles to speak up for our shared humanity. The 4th Annual Women’s March LA will take place in Downtown Los Angeles this Saturday, Jan. 18.
We are proud to advocate for human rights and believe that women’s rights are human rights. Thank you for speaking up for human rights and social justice. Together, we can all work together for a more peaceful, just world in which everyone’s rights are recognized and everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
