At the turn of the 20th century, socialist women in the U.S. and in Europe separately proposed a Women’s Day to promote equality in the trade union and socialist movements. The first International Women’s Day was held on March 19, 1911. It was changed to March 8 in 1913, four years before Petrograd women textile workers struck for peace and bread.

Join us to discuss historic and current developments in Iran, Ireland, the U.S. and elsewhere as we continue to organize and fight for gender equity, human rights, and socialism. Speakers include:

Norma Gallegos – Coordinator, National Mobilization for Reproductive Justice SF and Freedom Socialist Party

Urszula Wislanka – Member of News & Letters, a Polish exile, author of numerous writings including “Revolutionary Activity of Polish Women”

Mary McIlroy – Member, Peace and Freedom Party and former member, Irish Republican Socialist Party
