Women’s rights & freedoms are facing the most intense assault in over a century. Female people deserve safety, dignity and respect! Women & girls, fight now for your independence!

We’re proud to be female. It’s still a man’s world: sometimes we need protections from sex discrimination, sex crimes, and sexism. But we can only fight for recognition if we can define ‘woman’ and ‘girl’. We are not male. Woman means something, let’s keep it that way :)
