How did International Women’s Day come about? What is Socialist Feminism? And how are they both linked?

International Women’s Day (IWD) has a rich history of worker’s struggles and has been been used as a tool by working class women to fight for a new society.

So how did such an important day become sidelined towards the end of the 20th century and why is it now coming back on the agenda? How can women and worker’s utilise this day to fight against rising global inequality, exploitation and a capitalist system which is failing the world’s 99%?

This will be a worthwhile discussion for anyone wanting to learn more about IWD, the history of working class women and current battles women and the working class are taking on.

The meeting will also be joined by speakers from the Birmingham Home Care and Bin strike - two current disputes happening side by side against their employer Birmingham Labour Council. The strikers will demonstrate how even though one workforce is predominantly women and the other men, that both their struggles are linked by attacks on their terms, conditions and pay.

Be part of the discussion to see how we can move forward to make sure women and worker’s can win liberation and how socialism plays a key role in this.

So come along to the meeting to discuss, and to see how you can get involved in continuing the struggle to end women's oppression!
