Women’s March on Melbourne

Many of you may have seen on social media that marches are being organized around the world in solidarity with the Women’s March in Washington DC on Saturday 21st January 2017: https://www.womensmarch.com/

For those in Melbourne, the link for the Women’s March on Melbourne is: http://bit.ly/2jeJ87T

The mission statement and platform can be found on the main march website above and other marches are listed there too.

The project organisers are looking for volunteer oral historians!

The Washington march has started working with a group of historians to collect oral histories at the marches around the US and around the world.  See: https://womenarchivistsroundtable.wordpress.com/2017/01/10/project-spotlight-womens-march-on-washington-archives-project/

If you are interested in being involved in the oral history taking on the day (and to receive further information about how to do so on the day) please contact alanadowdell@hotmail.com
