Pittsburgh International Women’s Strike 2019

Join us in the preliminary stages of forming 2019’s International Women’s Strike Coalition in Pittsburgh. All are welcome and encouraged to participate in planning–no prior organizing experience needed!  Let us know how to best accommodate your accessibility, childcare, or other needs and how you’d like to be involved.

The International Women’s Strike is a network of cis and trans women in more than fifty different countries that emerged through planning a day of action for March 8th, 2017.

In the spirit of that renewed radicalism, solidarity and internationalism, the International Women’s Strike U.S. continues to be a national organizing center by and for women who have been marginalized and silenced by decades of neoliberalism directed towards the 99% of women: working women, women of color, Native women, disabled women, immigrant women, Muslim women, lesbian, queer and trans women.

We see our efforts as part of a new international feminist movement that organizes resistance not just against Trump and his misogynist policies, but also against the conditions that produced Trump, namely the decades-long economic inequality, criminalization and policing, racial and sexual violence, and imperial wars abroad. We aim to build relationships of solidarity between diverse organizations of women, and all those who seek to build a global feminist, working class movement.

For reproductive justice, labor rights, full social provisioning, an anti-racist and anti-imperialist feminism, environmental justice, and an end to gender violence.
