Building the New Movement from a Grassroots Women’s Perspective
1 - 3pm, The Studio
Hosted by Global Women's Strike & Women of Colour GWS
The injustices women struggle on internationally are central to the new movement for a caring society, and must be addressed for the benefit of the whole movement. From rape and domestic violence to policies of cuts, destitution, police violence, war and deportation, from no wages and wage inequality to denial of rights for carers and sex workers, from children taken into care to discrimination based on gender, race, religion, disability, sexuality. How do we work together across sectors and national boundaries while focusing on particular issues? How do we insist that women who break the class ceiling act with us not against us?
