The MWR £10 pound appeal…. Million Women Rise really needs your help!


The £10 pound appeal….

Million Women Rise really needs your help to make this years march happen if you can donate £10 (if you can afford it) towards this years march. It would go a long way. Please see below to donate or go to how to get invovled page and find ways of donating. YOU REALLY WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND IF YOU CANT PLEASE SPREAD THIS WIDE AND FAR AND ENCOURAGE SOMEONE YOU KNOW TO DONATE! Thank you x

Why donate to Million Women Rise?

Million Women Rise is a grass roots organisation that in 2008 gathered the biggest women’s march this country has seen for many years. On Saturday 5th March 2011 Million Women Rise again marched the streets of London. The march brought together thousands of Women and Children from around the country to call for the end of male violence against women in all its forms, and to celebrate 100 years of International Women’s Day. We need to raise money to pay for our march including public liability insurance and stage equipment for Trafalgar Square. We still need to raise money to cover the cost of the march and celebrations and to help fund our campaigning work through out the year.

Million Women Rise has a lot of energy and as grass roots, ordinary, women from all walks of life we have built the MWR coalition together from our sheer commitment to ending male violence in all its forms against all women and girls.

Million Women Rise promotes real change that is based on truth, unity, peace and love and we rely on the support of women like yourselves in the form of sponsorship and donations to keep our voice autonomous. Everyone who works for Million Women Rise is a unpaid volunteer, none of our money is spent on wages. This means that all of your money goes directly to the cause.

All donations, no matter how small, are appreciated.

Your donations help us maintain the independence we need in order to carry on campaigning for us all to live in a world free from male violence.

Million Women Rise – Calling All Women and Girls – London ~ Saturday 3 March 2012


    We rise
    All women march against male violence in all its forms.
    Join us in raising International Women’s Day 2012, celebrating our strength, resilience and courage together.
    Meet at 12 noon in Orchard Street, London W1 (outside Selfridges Food Hall)

The Million Women Rise (MWR) Coalition is a diverse group of individual women and women representatives from the Voluntary and Community Sector who are united by our outrage at the continued daily, hourly, minute-by-minute individual and institutionalised male violence enacted against women worldwide.

We believe that every woman and child has a right to live free from violence and that ongoing violence devastates not only the lives of the individuals directly affected but also the communities of which they are part. We have come together to organise a International demonstration against violence against women.

Join Us . every sister bring a sister. One Woman, One Body, One song, One Love. it is Good!
