San Antonio International Woman's Day March

Antonia Padilla
It’s been a busy 2017 for the community organizers at Mujeres Marcharán. Between the post-election day march and drama with the City and SAPD regarding expensive march permits, they have also organized peace-keeper trainings to facilitate peaceful protests and IWD march planning meetings. The International Woman’s Day March has been gaining momentum since its 1990 launch and is currently featured in the Department of Arts & Culture’s “United We Are One” exhibit celebrating San Antonio’s marches for equality. The 2017 march theme is “Muxerista, Existe y Resiste”/“Our Existence Is Resistance” and celebrates how “women and girls all over the world … are the voices of conscience, the roots of change and the leaders of local and global movements.” Given the current political climate, this year’s gathering is sure to bring out xingonas of all stripes, armed with signs and accompanied by family and friends. The march begins at Plaza del Zacate (Milam Park) with a blessing for Mother Earth and concludes with a rally uniting community leaders and speakers along with music, poetry and performances.
