Brighton's Demonstration for the Women’s Strike on International

At Brighton - Churchill Square, Brighton, United Kingdom
On 8th March 2018 5:30 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Description

On 8th March, international Women’s Day, around the UK people will be gathering in solidarity with the Women’s Strike. In Brighton, we too will stand together! We plan to gather in Churchhill Square at 5.30pm for a demonstration and raise our voices against a system of power that keeps us isolated and divided from one another.

We stand in solidarity with all women – women of colour, indigenous, working class, disabled, migrant, Muslim, lesbian, queer and trans women who have experienced marginalisation and oppression.

LET’S GET TOGETHER AND MAKE SOME NOISE!

There will be talks from Brighton Sister’s Uncut as well as other speakers.

About The Women’s Strike:

… What is the Women’s Strike?….

The Women’s Strike is about refusing all the work that women do – whether paid work in offices and factories, or unpaid domestic work in homes, communities and bedrooms.

The Women’s Strike will occur on International Women’s Day. We join a new international women’s movement, which has only grown in strength and determination since exploding onto the streets in recent years. From Argentina to Poland, from Ireland to Mexico, women are making connections, building alliances and taking action against our current conditions of womanhood.

The Women’s Strike rejects the decades of economic inequality, criminalization and policing, racial and sexual violence, and endless global war and terrorism.

The Women’s Strike is about realising the power we already hold – activating and nourishing resistance. It bursts into the centre of politics. It produces collective solutions to our individual experiences. It breaks the age-old story of female weakness.

The Women’s Strike fractures our confinement in the domestic home and challenges the traditional trade union strategy of reducing industrial struggle to the employment contract.

The Women’s Strike is a challenge to the assumption that women’s work should be performed for free and always with a smile. We demand that all women to have the right to choose, when and if they want to have children and, at the same time, not be trapped waiting to be chosen.

The Women’s Strike shines a light of solidarity on to the language of gender identity and recommits us to countering transphobia in the women’s movement and beyond

The Women’s Strike defies the idea that all women need to do is tell our stories and speak out. We are exhausted from telling the same story, over and over again. We need action!
