The march towards Brussels and the European Commission building will begin on Friday 2 March from Germany.

Our march is against the veil. It is the voice of protest of millions of women against this symbol of slavery. We demand the banning of child veiling as well as the banning of the veil in all work places and social centres.

Join us in Brussels to express your opposition to the veil and anti-women Islamic laws. Show your support for the widespread women’s liberation and equality seeking movement in Iran.

  1. The Quran does not mandate women wearing the veil. The only oppressive form of veiling is when it is legally mandated, not religiously. March against legal systems, not the veil itself.

  2. Islam in Iran, Stoning, flogging

  3. HERE’S TO THE WOMAN…who knows where she’s goingand will keep on until she gets there;who knows not only what she wants from lifebut what she has to offer in return…HERE’S TO THE WOMANwho is loyal to family and friends,who expects no more from othersthan she is willing to give;HERE’S TO THE WOMANwho guides and inspiresnot by quoting others philosophies but by living her own good example;who accepts both victories and disappointments with the same grace,and who can rise above life’s challenges and move on…HERE’S TO THE WOMANwho gives the gifts of her thoughtfulness,who shows her caring with a word of support,her understanding with a smile;a woman who brings joy to othersjust by being herself…Celebrate the joy and power of being a Woman…
