#MarchWithUs – a full month of stories from gender justice activists

By Forus International

Launched in 2021, the #MarchWithUs campaign featured the stories of change-makers fighting for gender justice across the globe. From digital rights to rural women and structures of power, this year’s edition was co-created with over 25 activists and civil society organisations from across the globe.

Why #MarchWithUs?

According to several Forus reports and research papers, feminist groups are among the most targeted civil society coalitions. They are often victims of attacks, both online and offline, and impunity reigns in many instances. Every year, with #MarchWithUs, the Forus network dedicates one full month to their experiences.

Over the years, the campaign brought us into the lives of Aruna Roy, Indian social activist, Sonita Alizadeh, rapper from Afghanistan, Jesselina Rana the founder of the Nepali Feminist digital platform, Amy Tounkara, afro-feminist and the brain behind La Femme en Papier, Alice Nkom fighting for LGBTQI rights in Cameroon, Lina Al Hathloul who is bringing to light the situation of women and human rights activists in Saudi Arabia and many more.

As part of the #MarchWithUs campaign, a workshop on women and youth-led communication and engagement was organised with participants from across the globe and testimonials from the European Youth Forum, the NGO Federation of Nepal, InspirACCIÓN, Peru, Coordination SUD, France, Akina Mama wa Afrika, Uganda, and Women Engage for a Common Future.
