The concept of establishing the Women’s March had been brewing for quite some time, stemming from feminist events and March 8 marches in the early 2000s. Recognizing the limitations of these gatherings, which often engaged only those already familiar with feminist ideas, the initiative took a bold turn.

Olena Shevchenko, an activist involved in organizing feminist marches since 2010, ventured to go beyond creating events confined to a specific audience. Instead, the goal was set to forge a powerful women’s march that couldn’t be easily overlooked or dismissed by the broader public.

Since 2018, our involvement in nationwide Marches has been instrumental in uniting women across the country. We actively contribute to organizing Women’s Marches on March 8, aiming to spotlight women’s rights at both societal and state levels. Additionally, we assist partner organizations in various cities to host events leading up to March 8.


On March 8, 2020, more than 3 thousand people took part in the Women's March* in the center of Kyiv!

We thank everyone who expressed their support for women's rights in Ukraine and around the world! We are grateful to those who took part in organizing a safe and visible March, including a number of NGOs, grassroots initiatives and activists. We are grateful for the work of about 30 volunteers who helped on the ground.


Marches, rallies and flash mobs were held in Kyiv and 15 cities across Ukraine.

People took to the streets to loudly declare women's right to safety and demand change!
About 1.8 million women suffer from domestic violence, and the Istanbul Convention has been "out of date" for our government for 10 years.

People came out to support each other.
