A day ahead of a major march in Washington, D.C. and satellite events nationwide, the Women’s March on Friday unveiled a detailed 70-page agenda, a document the group describes as a first of its kind “intersectional feminist policy platform.”

The “Women’s Agenda,” the group declared on Twitter, is “a roadmap for our movement, a workplan for our electeds, and it’s everything we’re marching for on January 19, 2019.”

That path forward is summed up with a list of two dozen federal policy priorities that fall within the following ten issue areas:

  1. Ending Violence Against Women & Femmes

  2. Ending State Violence

  3. Reproductive Rights & Justice

  4. Racial Justice

  5. LGBTQIA+ Rights

  6. Immigrant Rights

  7. Economic Justice & Worker’s Rights

  8. Civil Rights & Liberties

  9. Disability Rights

  10. Environmental Justice

In addition, the agenda highlights a trio of “policy priorities” that have direct impacts on all women: universal healthcare; the Equal Rights Amendment; and ending war.
