Feminism for the 99% dance party; interactive performance piece, rally, street art, music, healing & action areas. Wear PINK with a dash of red.
To mark International Women’s Day women and girls in several countries participate in the International Women’s Strike, taking action for our rights, living wages including for mothers and other caregivers; an end to violence, murder and disappearance of women; end war; the rights of Mother Earth; a feminism for the 99%. It’s time for us to step up and step out. IWS-LA will have something for everyone to take part in: street art, speakers, music, a live performance piece and more.
International Women’s Day Los Angeles is part of actions taking place in the Global South and North. It is being planned by a cross-movement multiracial team of women representing a range of grassroots organizations and networks. The LA IWD events began in 2000, when the Global Women’s Strike organized events following a call from women in Ireland for a one-day strike. Then in 2018 women in Argentina followed by women in Poland and other countries around the world called for the International Women’s Strike on International Women’s Day; since then women in at least 50 countries have planned activities to mark IWS.
