Liberal billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundations have contributed millions to fund the Women’s March on Washington and the Day Without a Woman initiative.
The Media Research Center issued a report on Tuesday revealing that Soros and his foundations contributed $246 million between 2010 and 2014 to 100 of the 544 groups cited as partners of the Women’s March. The amount he contributed during 2015 and 2016 was not included in the report.
The Women’s March is the primary U.S. organizer of Wednesday’s worldwide strike referred to as “A Day Without a Woman,” held on International Women’s Day, which encouraged women to skip work, wear red and abstain from shopping.
“While many celebrity voices were on stage on January 21, highlighting what had become a massive, anti-Trump event, there was another influential voice not heard that day. It belonged to one man. George Soros,” the MRC report noted.
Groups associated with the Women’s March that received Soros funding included the Center for Reproductive Rights, MoveOn.org, and the Human Rights Campaign.
Organizations receiving the most money from the liberal billionaire were the ACLU, which received $37 million, Human Rights Watch at $32 million, and premier partner of the Women’s March, Planned Parenthood, which accepted through its affiliates $21 million from groups funded by Soros.
Despite drawing an estimated 500,000 people to Washington, D.C. and up to five million participants worldwide, The Women’s March, held the day after the Trump inauguration, has drawn criticism for supporting a strict left-wing agenda that goes beyond opposition of President Trump or support for women’s rights.
For example, Pro-life women’s groups were not accepted as partners in the Women’s March.
“While Planned Parenthood partnered with and sponsored the Women’s March, at least two pro-life groups were removed from the march’s ‘partners’ page,” said the report. “Organizers added ‘safe, legal, affordable abortion’ as a core principle of the march, alienating the conservative, pro-life women (and men) who otherwise supported the march.”
