In 46 countries across the world women are striking on March 8th for a better world. In solidarity with the international women's strike, we are issuing a call for women in Oakland to organize ourselves against deportations, workplace harassment, out of control rent, broken healthcare, unlivable wages, discrimination, and police violence.

March 8th will be the beginning of a new international feminist movement that organizes resistance not just against Trump and his misogynist policies, but also against the conditions that produced Trump, namely the decades long economic inequality, racial and sexual violence, and imperial wars abroad.
