My Mum is on Strike Stay and Play Events

The ‘My Mum is on Strike’ events were the outcome of an evening of cava, curry and childcare in a front room in Leyton one night about six weeks before International Women's Day, we wanted to be involved in the Women’s Strike, but getting to a demonstration in the city was difficult as we had children to look after. We decided to organise an event where children could be collectively cared for (mostly by volunteers who either identify as men or who do not usually have childcare responsibilities) while their Mums, carers and parents could sit down, drink a hot cup of tea, and have a chance to chat about what it means to parent, to care in 2019, and what striking from that care might look like if we could scale it up across society.
