In commemoration of International Women’s Day, demonstrations will be held in multiple cities and entities in Mexico on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, to recognize and make visible the struggle of many women throughout history and today.

Thousands of women are expected to take the main streets and raise their voices and shout their demands.
Some safety tips and what to bring to the march.
Attending a protest means being exposed to multiple acts, however, these can be avoided if women participants are informed in advance, plan their departure and take into account tips or safety measures to protect their integrity. For the 8M protest, many feminist collectives have shared a series of useful measures to exercise their right to manifest.

Safety tips

  • Choose a collective, association, or movement with which you will make the tour since it is safer to attend with a contingent.
  • Know the time and address of the meeting point.
  • Before attending the demonstration, find out the route your contingent will take.
  • Once you know the route you will follow, consider other routes or meeting points in case you get separated from your contingent.
  • Carry a charged cell phone and if possible a rechargeable battery, it will be necessary to have credit for any emergency.
  • In your cell phone you should have at hand your main emergency numbers and it will not be superfluous to carry in your pocket a sheet with emergency numbers and personal information such as full name and blood type.
  • Carry your official identification
  • In case it is your first march, communicate at all times with a family member or trusted friend, and send constant messages and photos of the places you went through.

What to bring

  • Carry a small or medium-sized backpack that is not cumbersome.
  • In view of the high temperatures that have been registered in Mexico, it is recommended to carry a bottle of water.
  • Banners to demonstrate
  • A light snack.
  • Cash.
  • Wear sunscreen.
  • Wear a handkerchief in your clothing, so that in case you encounter shock groups and they throw tear gas at you, you can use it to cover your nose and mouth.
  • Carry security contacts, in case of possible encapsulation by security forces.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes, preferably tennis shoes since you will be walking a lot, or however you feel most comfortable.
  • Feminist collectives recommend wearing some purple clothing.
