Women's March on Philadelphia FAQ's


Why are you asking for money/donations? Where does the money go?
We are fundraising to cover the costs of the march and rally. A short list of things we need to pay for includes: permit, sanitation, security, stage, lighting, sound, port-o-potties, tents (including a heated first-aid tent), signs, etc.

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!

Who will be speaking at this year's Women's March on Philadelphia?
This years speakers will be a women from across of area who have their "boots on the ground" everyday fighting for our rights. With this years theme "Year of the Woman", we know we will have some powerful and moving speeches that will motivate you to continue to stand up to injustices, run for office and take your seat at the table! We will announce our full lineup soon. 

Are Republicans/Democrats/Pro-Life/Pro-Choice/Men/Non-Binary people allowed?
Yes - all people who have read the purpose of our march and are allies to Women and Femmes' rights are welcome.

After record-breaking elections of women (and specifically women of color and LGBTQ candidates), it is time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished and come together again in solidarity to proclaim what we will continue to fight for! We hope you will join us at 10AM at Logan Circle, as we march down the Ben Franklin Parkway to the Philadelphia Art Museum. We will rally with amazing speakers who represent all we are fighting for everyday! We cannot do this without your help: Our organization is an all-volunteer board, dedicated to these causes; we donate our time to the planning and execution of this amazing event. Donations are needed to pay for all of the various event vendors, including sound, audio/visual, stage, tents, ADA seating, portable restrooms, lighting, etc. Corporate sponsorship a
