On January 21, 2017, women worldwide took to the streets in protest.
In 81 countries and over 600 demonstrations an estimated 5 million people marched.
As we watched the movement unfold around the globe, we devised a simple and grassroots plan for a film. We will ‘crowd source’ interview segments in which women of different nationalities, economic status, age and religion talk about their marches. We will set up a web portal, and reach out to women everywhere; the Middle East, Africa, Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania, inviting them to upload footage of their thoughts on why they marched, who they marched with and how women fare in their country.
Our film will ask why these women (and men) marched and how we, despite our differences or perhaps because of them, found solidarity and solace in international unity – and a commitment to use our collective power to work towards progressive social change.
