Demonstrations featuring women (DFW) refers to demonstrations in which demonstrators are made up entirely by women or a majority of women (e.g. a gathering of mothers of prisoners), a women’s group (e.g. Women of Zimbabwe Arise [WOZA]), or are organized around women’s rights or issues specifically (e.g. women’s reproductive rights, or policies around women’s clothing). N.B. Events in which women are simply demonstrating alongside men, for example, are not categorized as such.

DFW is a subset of all demonstrations.
