Socialism and Gender Liberation: the working-class roots of International Women's Day
 
Saturday March 13, 1PM PST | 4PM EST
 
In 1910, socialist parties from across Europe met and voted to create International Women's Day. This tradition has spread around the world since the first celebration in 1911. The socialist women who organized 110 years ago understood that liberation from oppression was entwined with the liberation of all workers from capitalism. Despite over a century of progress, it's clear that socialism and gender liberation are only possible together. 
 
Join us for a discussion of the working class history of International Women's Day and the fight for an end to sexism and the capitalist system that relies on it.
