Wed Mar 16 2011 San Francisco Marks 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day with March and Rally
International Women's Day 2011 To mark the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, the Global Women’s Strike held the 2nd Annual Mother's March on March 8th in San Francisco. The Mother's March also takes place in other parts of the state, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, as well as in Haiti, Guyana, India, Peru and the UK.

In their call-out for the march, organizers wrote: "The GWS march is for communities of color, those in urban and rural areas, and other impoverished communities suffering from loss of jobs, lower wages, cuts in education, welfare, healthcare and childcare, those facing homelessness, foreclosures, and criminalization. Mothers produce/care for the world's people. Most women do caring work: grandmothers, mothers, daughters, partners. Unrecognized, unpaid or low-paid, women care for children, elders, people with disabilities, and each other. In Haiti and Palestine, wherever there is occupation, women do survival work without which resistance would be impossible. Budget cuts increase hunger and threaten those of us on lowest incomes, starting with communities of color."
