Women’s March Michigan recognizes that women make up less than 25% of the legislature in Michigan and that in order for women to be represented in policies, they must run for office. Women’s March Michigan will be recognizing women running for office in Michigan, on all levels, from all communities, of all political stripes from local school boards to the race for governor.

The Women’s March movement is intentionally focused on intersectionality. Like last year, our march will be diverse with members of all races, religions, gender identities, and sexual orientations represented. The opinions of our members – and the ways those opinions are expressed – will be just as diverse. Our focus is on showing the world that resistance to the oppression of women is stronger than ever before, and on mobilizing that resistance to change the systems that support that oppression. We are here to listen to women from marginalized communities that are feeling left out of the movement. We encourage daring discussions with people who experience the world and their personhood differently. Women’s March Michigan is excited to experience the conversation around pussyhats as part of that open dialogue.
We look forward to Power to the Polls, engaging with voters, empowering women to run for office, celebrating our successes in 2017, and inspiring those of us fighting in the trenches for justice, in 2018 and beyond.
