Vote Contre la Haine / Vote Against Hate
We stand together in solidarity with the people of France for the protection of their rights, their safety, their health, and their families; their vibrant and diverse communities are their strength.
Women’s March Global & Les Glorieuses are dedicated to raising awareness about the stakes of the French Presidential election for women. After a successful first Thunderclap action reaching over 200,000 people, we are continuing to stand up for the rights of women and girls in France.
Over the span of a few months, we have witnessed a wave of xenophobia in the world whose first victims are again and again women and minorities. Brexit in the UK, then the election of Trump, and today, an extreme right candidate who qualified for the second round of the presidential election in France.
Let us not be fooled: Marine Le Pen is not and never has been a women’s rights activist. She is in fact the most important enemy of women’s rights. As member of the European Parliament since 2004, she has systematically voted against all the resolutions aimed to advance women’s rights in Europe.
She voted against the resolution of 28 April 2016 on gender equality and empowering women in the digital age;
She voted against the renewal of the EU Plan of Action on Gender Equality on Women’s Empowerment in Development
She voted against the resolution of 9 September 2015 on women’s careers in science and universities, and glass ceilings encountered, which aims to reduce the gap between men and women in research and more broadly, in academia and science.
We know that when women unite, mountains can be moved. We have seen this many times in history before. We, women from all over the world, call on the people of France to use your voice, use your vote and Vote Against Hate. The stakes of the rights of women and girls in France could not be higher.
How can you help?
Support our Thunderclap action so that the message of voting against hate will be heard worldwide in support of the French People as they vote on Sunday the 7th of May.
