Women Demand Bread & Roses! hosted by Women's March London
Time & Location
About The Event
At 12pm on Saturday 19 January, we march at the Women's March London Bread and Roses Rally starting at Portland Place.
Why are we marching? Because period products are still inaccessible to many women and people who menstruate living in poverty, female health is still not taken seriously in the workplace, and there's still a bleeding tampon tax.
Join the BGP crew, whether you've volunteered with us before or it's your very first time. We want to make sure everyone feels empowered to join the Women's March and hey, sometimes that's hard on your own. Join Gabby, Raina and the crew on Saturday.
- Meet us at the corner of Langham Place and Riding House Street at 11.40am.
- Text 07907 025579 on the day if you can't find us.
- And keep an eye on the Women Demand Bread & Roses Facebook page for up-to-date info.
Come one, come all. Come alone or in a group. But make sure you bring your walking boots and your best period-themed placards!
Please note we cannot take responsibility for anyone not being able to find us on the day, or for any under 18s without adult supervision.
Please make sure you leave plenty of time to find us as the area gets very crowded!
Here's some more info from Women's March London:
Reminiscent of the 1912 Bread & Roses protests which revolutionised workers’ rights for women, Women’s March London will galvanise thousands for a Bread & Roses rally against Austerity in the United Kingdom. It is the common denominator in the rise of economic oppression, violence against women, gender pay gap, racism, fascism, institutional sexual harassment and hostile environment experienced by marginalised groups of people in the United Kingdom who are the many not the few. With the imminence of Brexit, we want austerity to end and are demanding specific assurances from the UK government. It is time to eliminate the dividing line between the ‘Haves’ and ‘Have Nots’. Equality demands that we all get to thrive and not just survive. We demand Prosperity not Austerity.
