From #MeToo to #Fightback — Happy International Women's Day!

We’re excited to welcome Lucy Marron, an organizer with the Socialist Party Ireland, to speak at our Campaign Launch Party this Sunday on lessons from the recent victory for abortion rights in Ireland!

This International Women’s Day, let’s remember its socialist roots and renew our determination to fight for a world based on human need, not oppression and profit.

The explosion of #MeToo both as an online phenomena and also a rallying point for workplace actions against sexual harassment, particularly by the Google and McDonalds workers, clearly shows that there is a mood for an organized fightback against sexism.

With a “predator in chief” in the White House who openly brags about committing sexual assault and threatens to repeal Roe v. Wade, our city needs to take a bolder stand for women’s rights.

Let’s take the movement for women’s rights from #MeToo to #Fightback:

 Build the movement against sexism, sexual violence, and workplace discrimination.

 Establish an elected, independent office to investigate workplace sexual harassment, with full powers to hold corporations accountable.

 End the gender pay gap!

 Expand the city’s programs against domestic violence! 4 out of 5 people evicted for owing less than $100 are women, and women disproportionately make up the homeless population -- we need rent control and a major expansion of social housing to expand housing alternatives for women leaving abusive relationships.

 Free childcare and reproductive health care for all!

Please join us this Sunday at Kshama Sawant’s campaign kick off party and help re-elect a socialist feminist and unambiguous fighter for working people to Seattle’s City Council!
