CALL for POSTERS
On March 8th, the Women’s Strike NYC will be out in the streets reclaiming the anti-capitalist roots of International Working Women’s Day and highlighting some of the major struggles at the crossroads of feminist and labor organizing: from the decimation of basic social safety nets, particularly insidious in working class communities of color, to the ways in which both care work and sex work remain unrecognized, even within the labor movement.
