The #SisterMarchCT Manifesto

Our Declarations

We refuse to be divided despite distances between us and the strengthening of borders that separate us.

We refuse to be divided irrespective of our differences.

We refuse to submit to domination, patriarchy and unfair discriminiation that deny our equality, freedom and self-determination as women.

We stand in unity and oppose threats to women’s human rights, our lives and the future of our children.

Our Demands

We demand that the United States President, Donald Trump, hears and submits to our calls for women’s rights to be respected, protected and fulfilled in and beyond United States borders as a transnational cause. We demand the same of President Jacob Zuma and the South African government.

We demand that United States President, Donald Trump, uphold international women’s rights, and human rights, and acknowledge and support women’s struggles to attain the realisation and advancement of women’s human rights to equality. This same demand is made of President Jacob Zuma and the South African government.

We demand that all women have access to the highest possible attainable standard of health including women’s sexual reproductive health and rights, the right to be free from violence, the right to freedom and secuirty of the person.

We stand in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington, and with human rights activists everywhere.

Phambili! Forward!
