On International Women’s Day, the Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF), in partnership with dozens of other organizations, marched on the White House to demand an end to President Trump’s expanded Global Gag Rule.
“As one of his very first acts in office, President Trump, with a stroke of his pen, issued a presidential memorandum that will cost tens of thousands of women their lives around the world,” said Eleanor Smeal, President of the Feminist Majority Foundation.
International Women’s Day this year marked a march for women’s rights attended by thousands of people and the beginning of a two-week long UN Commission on the Status of Women.
The United Nations’ official IWD theme for this year is “equality for women is progress for all,” and we couldn’t agree more! This International Women's Day, celebrate with us by speaking out for women’s rights - eight times.
