The Women’s Global Charter for Humanity arrived in Québec on 8 May 2005, greeted by a 15,000 strong demonstration carrying the demands to the Québec National Assembly.

The World March for Women began in Québec with the Bread and Roses demonstration in 1995 and ten year later is still vibrantly alive. The Charter arrived from the Aboriginal People of Canada who had received it the week before from English Canada women.

From Québec the charter goes to Europe where a series of major events are planned. From 8 March to 17 October the Charter will circle the globe eliciting solidarity and discussion on the 5 themes of Equality, Freedom, Justice, Solidarity and Peace.
