Sunday 3/10 International Womens Day – Allies News
- The Gender Equality Caucus of Occupy Seattle will be holding a rally including speakers, music, a speak-out, and arts on March 10th 2012 at Westlake Park for International Women’s Day, in solidarity with women and their struggles across the globe.
This is a day to celebrate women, honor our diverse struggles and strengths. As there is no single “woman experience”, we find it imperative for women from all different backgrounds be empowered to tell their story and share their knowledge, experience and perspective.
This will also be a day to fight back against the violations of women, fight back against the divide and conquer tactics that have kept us apart this long. A day to to come out with our stories and to say loudly that we refuse to live this way, a day to ask one and another “What would your liberation look like?” and learn how we can stand in solidarity with women from a multitude of backgrounds across the entire globe.
We call on people on the days leading up to and on International Women’s Day itself to be a part of creating a powerful outpouring of music, speak-outs, spoken word, speeches, art and a march on International Women’s Day at Westlake Park.
In standing up together, we will celebrate women here and all over the world who lift their heads up and resist.
