1155m - In case you haven't heard of Little Bits but Lebanon's very own Ayah...
Solidarity with women's struggles everywhere!
This event has finished
For this year’s International Women’s Day, variousfeminist, student, and women’swomen and gender-centered groups have collectively taken initiative to walk together in an International Women’s Day March through the neighborhoods of Beirut, from Sassine Square to Kaskas Garden, on Saturday.
Why this march?
Because women’s voices matter now more than ever and on all fronts, because women are at the very core of social, political, and legal issues and are able to fundamentally shift their course, because we still hear the same excuses and compromises over the basic rights that guarantee us complete gender equity and justice. Both at home and from the moment they step outside their doors, women in Lebanon live daily struggles under patriarchy.
We will march together because we refuse to compromise.
We refuse to compromise the achievement of complete and total equity.
Wherever you are, from the utmost North to the farthest South, from the coasts to the suburbs, from Mount Lebanon, Bekaa, Baalbeck, and the Aarsel valleys, whether your workplace is inside the house or outside it, whether you are happy or in despair, Lebanese or resident, activist or student, let us march together in Beirut’s streets and neighborhoods in celebration of women’s daily battles and struggles, and their capacity to always emerge victorious .
The time for patriarchy's end has come, and we shall march together with our hopes ahead of us!
