WOMEN’S DAY – It is not enough to oppose Trump and his aggressively misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic and racist policies. We must also target the ongoing neoliberal attack on social provision and labor rights. The assault on our dignity, livelihood, friends, lovers, and neighbors is only just beginning. We can expect the repeal of our healthcare, the widening of any wage equity, the elimination of overtime protections, the destruction of already weak student loan provisions. And all of this while waging a militarized police war against immigrants, black and brown communities of color.
We have got to act. Let us join together on March 8th to inagurate a new politics. Let us use the occasion of this international day of action to be done with lean-in feminism and to build in its place a feminism for the 99%, a grassroots, anti-capitalist feminism – a feminism in solidarity with working women, their families and their allies throughout the world.
