Women’s Global Strike
The demand for a global strike led and owned by women was ignited by feminists, trade unionists and activists at the People’s General Assembly held in 2015, in New York. Since then, the calls have spread and seen support; in 2017, the Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice supported the call for women’s global strikes starting on 8 March.
This call for a Women’s Global Strike on 8 March 2020 has been initiated by the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD), a leading network of feminist organisations and grassroots activists in Asia Pacific. APWLD’s 248 members represent groups of diverse women from 27 countries in Asia Pacific.
