The International Women’s Strike on March 8th, 2017 is an international day of action, planned and organized by women in more than 30 different countries.

In the spirit of solidarity and internationalism, in the United States March 8th will be a day of action organized by and for women who have been marginalized and silenced by decades of neoliberalism directed towards working women, women of color, Native women, disabled women, immigrant women, Muslim women, lesbian, queer and trans women.

March 8th will be the beginning 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, racial and sexual violence, and imperial wars abroad.

We celebrate the diversity of the many social groups that have come together for the International Women’s Strike. We come from many political traditions but are united around the following
common principles.

Chicago specific details to follow. NOTE: there are multiple events being planned in solidarity with this event; please see individual additional postings.
