San Antonio International Woman’s Day
March & Rally Planning Committee
We, like women and girls all over the world, are the voices of conscience, the roots of change and the leaders of local and global movements. Out of love for our communities, we come together time and time again to envision and create a world in which all people are free from exploitation, oppression and violence. As women and girls, we have learned the meaning of these injustices. Our work has gone unpaid. Our bodies have been bought and sold. Our desires have been demonized. Our voices have been silenced. And our efforts to come together have been violently repressed by institutions of power like governments, churches, banks, schools, prisons and other spaces in which we have been subjected to oppression. We have come together to make positive social change and have been the targets of racist, classist, homophobic and sexist attacks. Despite this history of repression, we continue to stand together, unwavering on the issues that are of critical importance to our communities. We seek healthcare, environmental justice, housing, education and fair wages not just as women, but also as people of color, as youth and elders, as immigrants and indigenous people, as lesbian, bisexual, intersex, two-spirit, transgender and queer women, and as poor and working class people. We oppose all forms of violence. We advocate for reproductive choice. We call for an end to war, genocide and occupation. We claim our own voices and come together to share them in public spaces. We march in solidarity with women and social justice movements around the world.
Planning for the 2010 International Woman’s Day March continues to move forward, as more and more organizations and individuals join the IWD Planning Committee.
JOIN US!!! We need as many women as possible spreading the word about the March!
– Pass out flyers at gatherings, events, and/or at work.
