Women's March on Philadelphia FAQ's
Why are you asking for money/donations? Where does the money go?
Are you working with SEPTA and the city to manage public transportation and planning?
Yes – this is one of the many reasons we ask people to register – so we can let SEPTA and the city know expected attendance figures and plan accordingly.
Can I wear a blue or pink pussy hat?
We are getting bombarded with questions about hats - pink, blue, pussy, or otherwise. We, as Philly Women Rally, do not dictate what others put on their bodies. There are many out there that find the hats offensive and not inclusive. There are many that find that the hats are empowering. We encourage you to research both sides. Here are a couple of links to get you started.
Is this an anti-Trump March?
No, this event is so much broader than that. Trump was certainly the last straw for a lot of women, but the inequality we face goes far beyond him and his presidency -- it is a societal issue that has been brewing for centuries. Our March is focused on the positive messages of inspirational women, and how they have persisted even in the face of adversity!
