Times Up - Women's March 2018



Today was another one of those amazing days! Women from different parts of the world gathered in their hundreds and thousands to march for what they know is right. All over social media was pictures of the youngest child to the more mature woman marching in unity.

Below are little accounts by two awesome women Chiara Brambilla (@chibra25) and Chelsea Thayre (@chelseathayre) who marched through the rain and snow!


Times Up

After one year of Trump’s presidency, Women across the globe have come together once again.

To fight against Sexual Harassment.

To Eradicate Gender Inequality.

To let their Voices be Heard.

Despite the rain and the snow, today, with a bit of fortune, I managed to talk to NY Attorney Shola Mos-Shogbamimu.

She is one of the strong women behind the Women’s March 2018 who constantly fights for Equality and Justice.

C:”What’s your message for those women, out there, who are currently struggling?”

S:”Be strong. Be bold. Be strategic about what you want for yourself and what you want for your Society. 

Take your convictions and your passions and use them for good.

Use it to drive the message that everyone is trying so hard together to do. It doesn’t matter in which part of the world you’re in, I want you to believe in yourself. I need you to have faith in yourself.

Believe that you serve a purpose even if you can’t see it.

Believe that your journey actually counts and it makes sense.

We’ve created a platform to amplify the voices of women. 

So let your voice be amplified. And even in your own way as an individual, use it as a powerful tool, in your school, workplace, and even at home.

Don’t be afraid anymore. 

Do Not Be Afraid!”

21st January 2018, London.
As the chants echoed through the streets of London, the sense of empowerment was overwhelming.

I have a voice and I should use it to the best of my ability, so this year I attended the Women’s March in London, something I’ve wanted to do since last year. 

Wrapped up in scarfs and coats, the rain soaking our feet and the cold air on our faces, we listened to the most inspiring women talk about equality. 

Each time we shouted ‘times up’ at the top of our lungs, I could feel women from all over unite in the injustice, the fight for a better life. 

It’s been a 100 years since women for the right to vote and we’re still marching on, were still making noise. 

So I ask you, if snow won’t even stop us, do you think anything will?
