Women's March On Washington - Vision & Principles

● We believe that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights.
● We believe Gender Justice is Racial Justice is Economic Justice.
● Women have the right to live full and healthy lives, free of all forms of violence against our bodies.
● We believe in accountability and justice for police brutality and ending racial profiling and targeting of communities of color and Indigenous peoples.
● We believe it is our moral imperative to dismantle the gender and racial inequities within the criminal justice system.
● We believe in Reproductive Freedom.
● We believe in Gender Justice.
● We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, two-spirit or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings.
● We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity.
● We believe in equal pay for equal work and the right of all women to be paid equitably.
● We recognize that women of color and Indigenous women carry the heaviest burden in the global and domestic economic landscape, particularly in the care economy.
● We believe that all workers – including domestic and farm workers - must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage, and that unions and other labor associations are critical to a healthy and thriving economy for all.
● We believe Civil Rights are our birthright.
● We support Indigenous women’s right to access, own, develop and control land and its resources.
● We believe that all women’s issues are issues faced by women with disabilities and Deaf women.
● We believe it is time for an all-inclusive Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
● Rooted in the promise of America’s call for huddled masses yearning to breathe free, we believe in immigrant and refugee rights regardless of status or country of origin.
● We believe that every person, every community and Indigenous peoples in our nation have the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands.
● We recognize that to achieve any of the goals outlined within this statement, we must work together to end war and live in peace with our sisters and brothers around the world. Ending war means a cessation to the direct and indirect aggression caused by the war economy and the concentration of power in the hands of a wealthy elite who use political, social, and economic systems to safeguard and expand their power.
