Women’s March Global Johannesburg, South Africa is a chapter association that is part of Women’s March Global, a prominent sister organization of Women’s March USA.
Women’s March Johannesburg was founded by local activists with the believe that human rights should be the main fundamentals into building a free democratic and safe South Africa where all can participate in, especially local women.
With crisis such as the Gender based violence, human trafficking and sexual exploitation, LGBTQI+ stigma and many more issues being on the rise within the South African context, Women’s March Global Johannesburg believes in utilizing peoples voices to create and encourage policy reform in society and to create an environment in which all South African citizens, male or female, young or old, white or people of colour, educated or uneducated have the opportunity to contribute to a better and safer South Africa socially. Women’s March Johannesburg also believes in governmental accountability in which it is the responsibility of the South African government to ensure that the needs of society are met according to the mandates of the South African Constitution of 1996, the highest supreme law of the land in South Africa.
Women’s Rights are human rights and therefore, Women’s March Johannesburg wants to ensure that South African women are not only given the platform to speak but in essence given the platform to be decision-makers of society in which the South African government should take heed to such calls as part of uplifting citizen participation in a democratic nation.
