International Women's Day Strike!

At Picturehouse Central, London, United Kingdom
On 8th March 2018 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Description

This International Women's Day we're on strike!
BECTU members at Hackney, East Dulwich and Crouch End Picturehouses, will be joining their colleagues at Picturehouse Central to protest and celebrate!

We've been striking for 17 months, for demands including a Living Wage, sick pay, and company maternity and paternity pay. Picturehouse are still refusing to pay us enough to live on, enough to raise our families. So we strike!

If our demands were rolled out across the economy, it would be women who would predominantly benefit. Because here, and all over the world, it is women who are paid the least, and work in the poorest conditions. Low pay is a feminist issue.

International Women's Day has a radical history. On March 8 1907, women demonstrated in New York, demanding votes for women and end to child labour. On March 8 1908, 15,000 women, mostly garment workers, marched through the city demanding shorter hours, better pay, union rights and the vote. In 1910 International Working Women's Day was inaugurated by an International Congress of Socialist Women, and the following year, demonstrations attended by upwards of a million women workers took place across Europe. Six years later, it was women striking for "bread and peace" in Russia that triggered the 1917 Russian Revolution. And it doesn't end there!

Join us this International Women's Day to protest Picturehouse - and help us win, and to celebrate the power of women who strike!
And remember... #BoycottPicturehouse
