Women’s March Chicago brings together women and allies in support of women’s rights including equal rights, equal pay, reproductive justice, affordable healthcare, affordable childcare, racial justice, voting rights, freedom from violence, LGBTQ+ rights, immigrant rights, fair wages, access for persons with disabilities, environmental protections, and other critical areas of focus.
Led by an independent team of diverse women from across the city and suburbs, WMC has organized three massive Chicago marches – in January 2017, January 2018 and October 2018.
Our amazing marching community will rise up again in 2020, as we prepare for and face one of the most critical elections of our lifetimes. Please stay tuned as we announce details for our 2020 events.
When we are not marching, WMC works with a coalition of notable progressive organizations from across Illinois to foster and promote positive change and move the needle on issues that matter most to our community.

THE MARCHERS: WHO WE ARE
We are people of different colors, backgrounds, religious faiths, and politics. We support women’s/human rights. We are activists, seasoned and new. We are people of varying economic, educational, and social situations. We are immigrants of all statuses. We are native and indigenous. We are people of diverse sexual and gender identities—LGBTQ, hetero, and other. We are of diverse marital status and age. We have varied physical abilities and limitations. We are survivors of trauma. We are people of diversities more numerous than can be mentioned here, and we stand together to protect each of them. We stand against hate in all forms and against targeting any groups or individuals. For ourselves and others, we express our right to respect and acceptance without bias or persecution.
