FAQs


Why do I need tickets? Are tickets required?
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.

We are beyond excited to once again host and organize the 3rd Annual Women's March on Philadelphia on January 19th, 2019. Our theme this year is "We Shall be Heard"! 
We shall be heard in our neighborhoods as we organize for action against gun violence, racism, antisemitism and Islamophobia. We shall be heard in the workplace where we expect equal pay for equal work and say #timesup to sexual harassment and assault. We shall be heard by the politicians who represent us on women's reproductive rights including safe and legal abortion, low cost healthcare for all, free college tuition, lgbtq rights and anti-discrimination policies, a pathway to citizenship and immigration reform, protection for the right and the ability for all citizens to vote and climate change policy.
We hope that you will join us at 10am at Eakins Oval as we march down the Ben Franklin parkway to the Philadelphia Art Museum where we will rally with a list of amazing speakers that repre…
