About Women’s March Aotearoa New Zealand
Women’s March Aotearoa New Zealand is a collective concerned with women’s rights and allied issues of social justice.
Founded by those involved in Women’s March on Washington events on January 21, 2017, we aim to connect individuals and groups interested in contributing to positive social change by focusing on relevant issues impacting communities across New Zealand.
We hope to act as a collaborative support network and an informational clearinghouse for organisations that support women’s, human, and environmental rights, in alignment with the framework focussing on health, economic security, environment, representation, and safety.
We plan to inform participants about local and international issues, as well as encourage participation at relevant regional events. In order to achieve these goals we will maintain an active and varied social media presence. We will also engage in community outreach to build networks with service providers and policy makers across New Zealand.
He waka eke noa – we’re all in this together
