Why I am joining the march: I want to be able to show my support for women everywhere and help us stand together in the face of the fear which surrounds the Trump presidency, and all of the other scary things happening in the world right now (like Brexit). I believe that the world will be a better place if women everywhere have the freedom, education and support they need to reach their full potential, and that this will only be possible once we don’t have to live in fear. This should be true for all women regardless of age, race, ability, class or sexuality.

About me: I’m 25 years old and I’m studying part-time for a PhD in Archaeology, also working part-time in museums as a volunteer coordinator. I try to keep everyone happy, and make sure everyone has  tea, cookies, and someone to talk to who will  cheer them on to achieve new things. I’m dyspraxic and suffer from anxiety, I’m also in the process of confirming a diagnosis of fibro myalgia. I am joining the disability march because I live in Birmingham UK so there isn’t a sister march near me tomorrow and I’m currently unable to travel.
