This week, we’re marching for women’s rights and better representation for all with our #MarchingForward campaign. Inspired by the critical need for collaboration and optimism as embodied in the Women’s March, we joined together with GlobalGirl Media, Emerge America, The Female Quotient, IGNITE National, and WorldWideWomen to create the campaign. Join us in sending the new administration the bold message that regardless of gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation, religion, ability, or circumstance, we are not going anywhere!
You can start by sharing the #MarchingForward video with your network. On Saturday, write why you march on your hand and post with the #MarchingForward hashtag. If you’re in DC or San Francisco, meet up with The Representation Project in person. We’ll be with The Female Quotient at Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument throughout the day in DC and in San Francisco, gathering in front of Symphony Hall on the corner of Franklin and Grove at 2:30pm PST.
Together, let’s show the world that women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights.

“When Ryan Gosling won the 2017 Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy film, for his performance in La La Land, he came onstage and acknowledged, as actors often do: ‘You don’t get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people.’ He then acknowledged—rather eloquently—that the shoulders he, and so many working fathers, stand on are primarily those of their wives. In the case of Gosling, that’s Eva Mendes, also an actor, and the mother of his two daughters. ‘While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer,’ said Gosling. ‘If she hadn’t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, there would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So sweetheart, thank you.'” – Quartz
