Thousands of protestors descended onto Nathan Phillips Square for Women March On: Toronto


Despite freezing temperatures, thousands of protestors descended onto Nathan Phillips Square at noon today (January 19) for the third-annual Women’s March in Toronto. This year, speakers included equity and gender-based violence expert Farrah Khan, Black Lives Matter activist Sandy Hudson and Ontario sex-ed activist Rayne Fisher-Quann.

The march began in 2017 in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington, which occurred the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump. Issues targeted have included women’s rights, sexual harassment, gender equality, reproductive rights, immigration, LGBTQ rights, Indigenous rights, racial equality, equal pay, the environment and more.

Posters spotted at this year’s rally continued to build on these themes and covered a range of topics including the #MeToo movement, Doug Ford’s government, climate change, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and gender identity.

Following the rally, marchers made their way up University to Queen’s Park.
