Million Women Rise is a coalition of individual women and representatives from the Women’s Voluntary and Community Sector who have come together to organise an annual national demonstration against male violence which coincides with International Women’s Day in March each year.

MWR will rise again on Saturday 5th March 2011 in Central London. In 2010 we marked the 100th anniversary of the declaration of International Women’s Day and this year is the 100th anniversary of the first celebrations taking place in 1911. So join us again for this important event.

On the demonstration, we celebrate and honour women’s activism, courage and achievements and continued struggle against global male violence in all its forms. Million Women Rise is an expression of women’s continued resistance and struggle against global male violence. The first demonstration in 2008 saw 5000 women and children take to the streets of London. It was the largest, recent demonstration of women in UK history and the most diverse demonstration many of us had ever attended. Because male violence continues, so too does Million Women Rise and women and children marched again in 2009 and 2010.
