This year for International Women's day, many organisations, initiatives and individuals joined Feminist Platform Initiative on March 8th to celebrate. The sun was shining and the day was filled with a positive vibe and high energy. From Yeritasardakan to Northern Avenue, we planned a march that involved powerful messages, musicians and everyone that took part made extremely enthusiastic contributions.

The main messages for the day had been printed on colourful t-shirts and were worn during the march and also chanted whilst we walked through the streets of Yerevan. "Our opportunities are unlimited", " no to patriarchy", "no to borders" and "My presence is the way I want it to be" were the significant messages we wanted to portray throughout the day. 

When we all finally reached Northern Avenue after the fun musical march, it was then time for our Music fest that had been organised by local musicians and volunteers from the centre.
