About Women's March

In March of 2017, in the run-up to the national Dutch election, 20.000 people took to the streets to protest for women's rights and equality. A diverse group of protestors gathered, with messages ranging from gay rights to reproductive rights and equal pay. This march was held in solidarity with many sister marches all over the world.

Women coming together for equality for all.

About the uprising project

The Uprising project revolves around the right to protest and demonstrate. These happenings are commonly portrayed as flare ups, especially if there is violence, and presented without the context of what lead to the outbreak and what happens during these demonstrations. Inside these uprisings, communities form between sometimes very diverse groups. We aim to show the story of people who sometimes risk their lives for their convictions — even if that means just being there and waiting.
