International Women’s Day Rally
March 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=5251
Cohosted by Socialist Alternative Seattle and Seattle DSA
Around the world far-right figures like Trump are rising, threatening the rights of women, immigrants, and everyone who doesn’t fit into their conservative worldview. Powerful corporate interests are backing their right-wing policies. At the same time a new women’s movement is rising. #MeToo has united millions to expose powerful predators like Trump, Weinstein, and so many more. In Seattle we will rally in solidarity with the March 8th “International Women’s Strike,” and the “Day Without A Woman” called for by the national Women’s March.
End Harassment & Violence Against Women!
Seattle needs an independent elected office with the power to defend those who report workplace harassment, and to hold employers accountable. Support the Silence Breakers!
Equal Pay for Equal Work!
Seattle has one of the worst gender pay-gaps in the country. We need immediate action to correct this alongside our city’s deep racial and class inequalities.
Housing & Healthcare for All!
The City Council must reverse funding cuts to women’s shelters. Quality healthcare and housing should be a guaranteed right. We need rent control and Medicare for All.
Build a movement to stop the attacks on women, people of color, immigrants, workers, the environment, and to impeach the “Predator in Chief.”
