Tamika D. Mallory – The Women's March on Washington
Tamika D. Mallory has been protesting her entire life – from joining Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network at age fifteen, to working with the Obama administration on gun control legislation. As National Co-Chair of the Women's March on Washington, Mallory proved that women are the centre of resistance against the Trump presidency.
It was the largest single-day protest in US history, and worldwide participation was estimated at over five million. The Women's March sent a bold message to the new US government on its first day in office: women's rights are human rights.
In this fiery session, Mallory will reflect on the wins of the Women's March, and what's next in the fight for equality.
Tamika is a nationally recognised US activist who is well known as one of four Co-Chairs for the 2017 Women's March on Washington. President of Mallory Consulting, a strategic planning firm, and board member of The Gathering for Justice, Tamika has landed on the 2017 Time '100 Pioneers' list and Fortune's 2017 list of the 'World's Greatest Leaders'. She is a prominent voice of civil rights, social justice, and feminism.
