March on the Pentagon is excited to present a live video event for International Working Women’s Day!
After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted by the feminist movement around 1967. The United Nations began celebrating the day in 1975.
Since our beginning, three years ago, March on the Pentagon (Originally Women’s March on the Pentagon) has been an internationalist organization in solidarity with all women and others around the world who fight to resist U.S. Imperialism.
Join MoP’s leadership and invited guests on Saturday, March 7 from 1 – 4 pm EST as we explore what it means to be anti-imperialist, pro-peace women in these days of political and social turmoil, but most of all WAR!
Hear from many inspiring women including Cindy Sheehan, Madelyn Hoffman, Diane Moxley, Lisa Davis, Mnar Muhawesh, Lucy Pagoada-Quesada, Randi Nord, the women of FURIE, Sue Ann Martinson, Emma Fiala, and more on topics like women and war, international solidarity, local organizing, anti-imperialist political organizing, black liberation, Israeli colonialism in Palestine, anti-imperialism in Latin America, anti-imperialism in the Middle East, and more. There will be opportunities for questions following each live speaker.
