WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tomorrow, October 8th, the Women’s March will hold its “Women’s Wave” march where organizers will pretend to represent all women while refusing to acknowledge the basic definitions of womanhood and motherhood. Their radical agenda has put biological women on the backburner in favor of wokeness. 

Independent Women’s Forum (IWF), the nation’s leading organization standing up for women, rejects the notion that the Women’s March — which supports redefining ‘sex’ to mean ‘gender’ and believes that fully intact males who identify as female belong in women’s private spaces, including single-sex sports, shelters, prisons, and locker rooms — speaks for and represents all women. 

IWF Vice President of Communications Victoria Coley said, “Words matter. This isn’t just about semantics. Redefining ‘sex’ to mean ‘gender’ is a serious threat to the rights that generations of women fought for and all the progress women have made. If you can’t define what a woman is, you can’t call your movement the ‘Women’s March,’ you can’t create a ‘women’s wave,’ you can’t represent the ‘feminist future,’ and you can’t defend women’s rights. Unfortunately, groups like the Women’s March are making it increasingly difficult to talk about women’s rights in a common language. This is the REAL fight for women today.”

Carrie Lukas, president ofat Independent Women’s Forum, added, “The Women’s March never spoke for all women, and today, this is a group that now asks female athletes to step aside for men and refuses to stand up for women’s equality and safety. American women deserve better. They face tremendous challenges today, from skyrocketing inflation, supply shortages, growing crime problems, and schools that don’t care about students or parents. Those are the issues that are front and center in women’s minds but will be ignored during this so-called Women’s March.”

Tomorrow, IWF will place multiple billboard advertising trucks featuring pro-woman messages throughout Washington, D.C., and run a geo-targeted digital campaign to reach march attendees, media, and Hill staffers to remind them that words matter, that we must codify our common understanding of basic sex-based words, and that the Women’s March doesn’t truly care about women’s rights.

IWF has worked across the aisle with the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) to release the Women’s Bill of Rights (WBOR), a proposal that would codify the common definitions of ‘woman,’ ‘girl,’ and ‘mother.’ WBOR would ensure that our country’s laws recognize there are legitimate reasons to distinguish between the sexes with respect to athletics, prisons or other detention facilities, domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers, locker rooms, restrooms, and other areas where biology, safety, and/or privacy are implicated.
