Women’s Rights and Nature’s Rights Go Hand in Hand

The Broad View

Great Old Broads for Wilderness supports our members’ participation in the Women’s March on Washington and Sister Marches across the nation on January 21, 2017. If you choose to participate as a Broad, here are suggestions on how to frame your message.

As one of the few women-led conservation organizations, we will march for rights of all women and the protection of Mother Nature–upon whom all of humanity depends. Our work ties naturally to the rally’s intent for women to speak out to protect our rights, safety, health, and families. To Broads, this clearly includes ensuring the health of wild lands that belong to the American public, the well-being of our planet, and the protection of families of all species.

There will be a diverse platform of messages at the rallies. Broads is aligned with march organizers, who see the event as a bi-partisan forum to inspire action through positive messaging and the power of grassroots activism. Our role is to demonstrate we are strong, assertive women working to effect positive change for the world.

Let’s stand up for our rights to protect and preserve our Earth with respect and celebration. Have fun with the march, and represent Broads’ views with solidarity. As we’ve said for years, “It’s time to Mother Nature”!
