The International Women’s Strike US is involved in supporting and organizing local and national mobilizations and campaigns by and for women and non binary people who have been marginalized and silenced by decades of neoliberalism. The tyrannies we experience—low wages, violence, racism, xenophobia—are wrapped up in global chains of trade and militarism. There has never been a more important time to unite with women fighting the same fights in many nations. And there has never been a more important time to learn from one another. As the last year has shown, women stand at the forefront of today’s struggles.
On May Day 2017 workers, waged and unwaged, across the country will strike, march, rally, boycott, and make our voices heard against the sexism, racism, xenophobia and homophobia of the Trump administration. The International Women’s Strike will strike with all those organizing for May Day. Learn more
The US Women’s Strike of March 8th 2017 was organized by the International Women’s Strike US in solidarity with women from over fifty countries who stroke on that same day. Women have long known that all work does not happen at the workplace, but also at home and in the many ways we serve others. In today’s precarious economy, most of us work without the protection of unions. On March 8th thousands of women stroke from formal and informal labor, walked out, marched, boycotted, wore red, and organized teach-ins and events in over fifty towns.
