International Women's Day

JULY 11, 2019

International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March every year. It is a chance to celebrate women’s history, remember women’s struggles and to focus on women’s resistance across the world.

In the last few years, women have lead inspiring movements globally - from the women of India campaigning against sexual violence to the women of Palestine on hunger strike against illegal occupation to the #MeToo movement.

International Women’s Day was first established by Clara Zetkin, a German marxist and feminist activist back in 1911. The link between women’s struggles and working class struggles is an important one. There are 10 values that guide International Women's Day: Justice > Dignity > Hope > Equality > Collaboration > Tenacity > Appreciation > Respect > Empathy > Forgiveness

Make International Women's Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.
