Women's March on London




To all the women around the world today who are marching, I stand with you. Though I can't be at the London march myself, I wanted to live stream all of the action and include all the details for anyone attending.

The march will begin at Grosvenor Square at 12 noon with a short series of speeches presented by actress Rebecca Hall. 

These are themed around the idea of creating a space to allow different voices to be heard, which is a core theme of the march. 

12.00 - Hear Our voice - The voices of the Millennial generation -often forgotten, now heard and arranged by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, British playwright 

12.05 - A voice of the past - Sekela Ngamilo, a young student reading an excerpt from the Freedom or Death speech from the suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. 

12. 07 - A voice from Westminster Stella Creasy (Lab, Walthamstow) 

12.10 - A voice of activism Akeela Ahmed, Founder of She Speaks, We Hear (one of many organisations supporting the March). 

The march will begin at 12.30 and will finish at Trafalgar Square, where a rally, hosted by Sandi Toksvig and with speeches from celebrities and leaders of supporting organisations, will begin at 2pm. There will be an area for media on the North Terrace of Trafalgar Square, at the top of the steps in front of the National Gallery, looking down towards the stage.
