Women's March 2017
“Many causes, one struggle” this is the slogan that more than 2000 women marched under, on 11th of March 2017 from Sessine square to Kaskas garden celebrating International Women’s day where many, young students and feminist NGOs united to demand their rights.

Justice without Frontiers NGO that strives for women to reach justice participated in organizing the march. The media officer, Mirella Boukhalil covered the event and was part of the media team preparing for the march. JWF had volunteers that helped in the event. They were all wearing a white shirt with the slogan of the NGO “Together for women to reach justice”. Our throats didn’t disappoint with demanding our rights, the harsh wreathing conditions also didn’t stop us.

The rain didn’t stop women from being on the streets and pitching in with asking for their rights. Lebanese, Syrian, Palestinian women as well as foreign workers, refugees and many others marched side to side to raise their voices against all injustice. 
The marchers raised their voices against gender inequality, the unfairness of custody system, sexual harassment and early marriage and against all kinds of unfairness women face. Marchers also demanded justice for a woman named Rayan who was beat to death by her husband a day before the march.

This march was made to prove that women exist and dismissing their rights is unacceptable. It was also set up to show intolerance against the struggle women face domestically, professionally and politically.
“There’s strength in solidarity” this is what the march proved as many organizations and NGOs worked together to set up this march, to raise their voices together to reach a society with equality so that we won’t need a day for women, as everyday will become women’s day.
