We will join and support the call for equal treatment of women, girls, trans people, the wider LGBTQI community, religious and ethnic minorities and people with disabilities.

Date: Saturday March 11

Time: 12.30-15.00

Place: meet at Dam Square and walk to Museumplein. You can identify us by looking out for our pink Mama Cash umbrellas!

The demonstration follows the inauguration of Donald Trump – as a women’s fund we approach his term with both anxiety and resilience. It is of crucial importance for feminists to let their voices be heard, right now. The upcoming elections in the Netherlands on March 15th make this even more critical.

Nicky McIntyre, executive director of Mama Cash:

As feminists we care about more. We want attention for labour rights, environmental justice, and the rights and wellbeing of migrants and refugees.

Join us and others on Saturday March 11th! We will gather at Dam Square in Amsterdam at 12.30, and you can find us by looking for our pink Mama Cash umbrellas! Because feminist activism works.

For those who are not in Amsterdam, there are also Women’s Marches taking place in Nijmegen and Groningen.
