According to Lesbian Avenger co-founder Sarah Schulman, "It was at the 1993 March on Washington that the Avengers and ACT-UP Women’s Network created the first Dyke March -- with 20,000 women, marching together with no permit. These participants brought the marches home to their cities and countries and created a new tradition."

DC's chapter [of the Lesbian Avengers] was instrumental in organizing the first DykeMarch on April 24, 1993. The march, without a permit (a tactic which has become a tradition), drew 20,000 women who set off from Dupont Circle [in Washington, DC] to march through the neighborhood and up to Meridian Hill. [From "The Lesbian Avengers - DC" by The Rainbow History Project].
