CITY FOR HER
On March 8 at 11 am (Kyiv time) we offer everyone to join the walk-action from any place where you are. The route of the walk every participant will choose independently. The format of the shared walk provides that every woman in her city or village can go for a walk, being in contact with other women through the global network. We will unite through a chat, where we will share our own observations and geolocations, send thoughts / feelings, send photos, sounds or videos from the place. You can go on your own or invite someone or even organize a group.
What places in your neighborhood are connected with the women of your residence, with their contribution to the life of the community? Streets, monuments, buildings, parks, benches.
We invite you to a walk to these places from where you are now. In this way, together, around the world, we will put these important places on the map to identify and manifest them, to show and mark how many women are investing in the creation of the places and spaces in which we live.
We go out not only to win back the city for ourselves and start its "feminization". We offer to go out together with women in whose settlements there are no mass marches.
Go out with women who do not want to join the formal mass march in Kyiv or other big cities. But to come out together in solidarity with women who cannot use public space freely: those who are abused by a partner, those who are caring for children and the elderly, those who have illness and\or fear of being raped, or\ and quarantine restrictions.
Although pandemic has deprived us of the possibility to protest collectively due to the health risks, it does not make us incapable of inventing new methods of protesting socio-economic or gender injustice.
On this day, we go out to manifest the cities for her!
