In November, 2013, students peacefully gathered on Maidan Square in Kyiv, Ukraine. Through joyful singing they celebrated their common goal of an economic treaty to bring Ukraine closer to the European Union. Peaceful demonstration came to an end when government special police forces broke into the square and beat the student demonstrators.
Women courageously filled the streets, energized the nation, and sustained the protestors for over two months. The women became the heart of this spontaneous revolution, now known as "The Revolution of Dignity."
These Women of Maidan join history's female revolutionaries who selflessly sustained political movements by providing love, nourishment, and care during desperate times. The Women's March on Versailles, Soldaderas of the Mexican Revolution, Igbo women in Nigeria, the White Rose Movement against the Nazis, and Egyptian women during the Arab Spring, all brought unseen power that defeated oppressive political systems.
Maidan is a call for women ...
Power. Dignity. Strength. Hope.
