Tickets are not required to attend and you don’t need to bring them with you. We are solely requesting people to register in order for us to gauge approximate attendance numbers so we can plan for things like security and port-o-potties.
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 adhere to the theme of "Resist, Persist, Rise."
Who will be speaking at this year's Women's March on Philadelphia?
We had a call for speakers and performers out, as we are focused on showcasing the stories of ordinary women in Philadelphia doing amazing things, under the theme of "We Resist. We Persist. We Rise." We will announce our full lineup soon. Our "Ordinary Women" speakers and performers have just been announced here: http://www.womensmarchphl.com/2018/01/announcing-ordinary-women-speakers-and.html
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.
