- 82 women represents the 82 films directed by women that have been included in the main competition over it's 71 years. Compared to 1,645 male directors.
- The "women's march" will happen on the red carpet for the only French woman in competition, Eva Husson's film Girls of the Sun, which is about a Kurdish female battalion.
- Was organized by the French cinema gender equality movement 50/50 by 2020
- The troll director of the Festival, Thierry Fremaux, said the event is for women "to affirm their presence."
- Agnès Varda will read a French statement asking the Festival to get it's shit together and stop excluding women and then Cate Blanchett (jury President) will read an English statement.
- On Monday, the women will ask Thierry Frémaux, and the artistic directors of the Directors’ Fortnight and Cannes Critics’ Week sidebars to sign a pledge for parity/inclusion at Cannes going forward.
