Is the Women's March Under Threat?

Women Marches on the eighth of March met with certain threats all around the globe. Women are subdued and banned over the world. Many countries still find it hard to acknowledge women as equal to men. 


On March 8 every year, people around the globe celebrate International Women's Day. Women from all over the world unite and talk about the issues that women face regarding gender inequalities. Bills supporting women's rights often get passed on the day, which is a sign that women are also being recognized as they should be.


Women comprise 49 percent of the world's population and assist the community to reform. The International day of Women took its roots in the Russian Revolution of Women. In 1907, women proclaimed their legal and civil rights which led to the revolution of genders. 


In many countries, women host marches and rallies. They hit the streets and demanded their legitimate rights in education, domestic violence, and subjective preferences. However, not everyone accepts their proclamations with open arms. Several countries have a problem with these women's marches. 



Turkey has banned Women's rallies and marches for years. Under non-compliance, women would face violence, detention, and even get intimidated by law enforcement officials. Despite all this, women still hit the streets and demand freedom. 


Amnesty International has called out Turkey to let women hold marches without being harassed, beaten up, and attacked by the police.


"Amnesty International will join the International Women's Day marches in Istanbul and Ankara said Esther Major, a General advisor at Amnesty International. Adding, “Call on the authorities to ensure that the thousands of people who will gather tonight as they march are protected and that their legitimate demands for urgent action on women's rights are implemented,” Indonesian and Thai

women, came out on the streets to legalize the paused bills that protect domestic workers from violence and harassment. Indonesian women also chanted the slogan, "Long live Indonesian women."



After the nation’s winter breaks, Afghanistan has banned women from entering universities. Only men returned to educational institutions to proceed with their studies. The European Union sanctioned Afghanistan along with Syria, Russia, Myanmar, and Sudan for depriving women of their rights. 



In this communist-run Cuba, activists who seek approval for a public demonstration of women's rights were arrested. Due to the disruption by the government, feminist organizations in Cuba urged people to join a virtual meeting on women's day. The "Virtual March" on social media creates awareness regarding femicides and violence against women. 



In Pakistan, religious groups have been one of the constant obstacles to the women's march. It's a common thought among them that such marches portray liberal western values which go against Islamic doctrines. A major source of criticism against such rallies stems from the posters in the rallies that also differ from the sensitive cultural and religious values. 


Feminist organizations are battling against the patriarchal system and chauvinism around the globe. Although their numeral efforts brought women to the spotlight, the fight for gender equality will persist.
