A public meeting to celebrate International Women's Day
As women in countries including occupied Iraq and Afghanistan fight to defend the most basic human rights, women across the world are being hit by the economic crisis - through job losses, wage cuts, cuts in services, increased domestic violence and in many other ways. We, activists in the women's and workers' movements, are organising this meeting to celebrate International Women's Day in the way its founders meant it to be celebrated: by promoting the international struggle for women's liberation.
Speakers: Houzan Mahmoud (Organisation of Women's Freedom in Iraq); Maria Exall (Communication Workers' Union national executive); Feminist Fightback; Jean Lambert (Green MEP); Terri Jude (writer for the Independent); Chemilines striker (invited)
