Extract from the Women's Manifesto for Peace
"The World March of Women is a feminist international movement born through and based on action born in the year 2000. Our movement is unstopable and is composed of women's and grass-root organizations in various countries throughout the world who are speaking out against and working to end the oppression, exploitation and discrimination that we experience.
Since March 8th, 2010, our steps have resonated and our voices have been heard in 52 countries. Tens of thousands women have taken part in national mobilizations based on four fields of action : women's economic autonomy, common good and public services, violence against women, peace and demilitarization.
Today, October 17th 2010, we have arrived in Bukavu, in the province of Sud Kivu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo where horific acts of sexual violence within the context of war are commonplace. It is in solidarity with the women who resist daily the effects of armed conflicts that we have chosen to close our 3rd International Action in this country."
