It is time for global governance to put people and the planet over profit. Public Services International (PSI) joins the coalition of feminist, women, human rights and labour organisations calling for a Global Women’s Strike on 8th March, International Women’s Day.
Although we know that restrictions due to the COVID-19 epidemic will limit the gathering of women in many towns around the world, we support the initiative that women workers, feminists and allies will take on this day demonstrating to the world’s economic and political powers that if women stop, the world stops.
PSI will publish and share a compilation of our affiliates' actions on International Women's Day 2020 - send us your news, articles, posters and videos.
The neoliberal global system is devastating human rights and the planet and women are especially impacted, while the political power is responsible for reducing the role and participation of social organisation, undermining the very foundation of democracy. Read our full statement.
ON 8 MARCH WOMEN WILL FIGHT TOGETHER TO CHANGE THE RULES FOR A BETTER WORLD. AND THE TIME TO CHANGE IS NOW!
