Time’s Up: The Women’s March For Equality
Chanting “Time’s Up, Time’s Up,” and carrying #MeToo placards, more than 5 million protestors worldwide took to the streets this weekend – over 100,000 in London – to march, speak up and make their voices heard. And it was beyond empowering.
The Women’s March is a women-led global movement bringing together all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations and backgrounds, and one year on from the first powerful march in 2017 – the first day of Donald Trump’s US Presidency – the fight for equality and human rights is stronger than ever.
“We are coming together to pledge that we are going to make change in big and small ways. We will stand side by side, once again, in solidarity with our sisters, brothers and siblings around the world. Together we are strong and if we all work for a better world then time is really up for oppressors of women,” said the organisers of Women’s March London.
Let’s take a look at some pics from the weekend, and continue to be inspired and empowered by this kick-ass, global movement that’s fighting for change around the world.
At Sunday's #timesup rally we are marking 100 years of women's suffrage. In 1918 some women got the right to vote for the first time after a long campaign by the suffragettes. Helen Pankhurst who is Emmeline Pankhurst's great granddaughter is coming to speak and the amazing women in this picture are coming back.

Because gender inequality has had its time, right?

Empowering the next generation of feminists.
Speak up, stand up, stay fierce.
The most influential people in my life have always been women. My family, my friends, my teachers, my colleagues, and my idols. I am obsessed with all the women in my life. I adore them and need them more and more every day. I am so grateful to be a woman, I wouldn't change it for the world. I hope I'm not only defined by my gender though. I hope I'm defined by my input to the world, my ability to love and to have empathy. To raise my son to be a a good man alongside the good man who loves me for everything I am and am not. I want what's best for people, I think we all do. We just can't agree on what that is. Power to the peaceful, power to the people x #womensmarch2018
