As women in countries including wartorn Iraq and Afghanistan fight to defend the most basic human rights, women across the world are being hit by the economic crisis - through job losses, wage cuts, cuts in services, increased domestic violence and in many other ways.
We, activists in the women's and workers' movements, are organising this meeting to celebrate International Women's Day in the way its founders meant it to be celebrated: by promoting the international struggle for women's liberation.
Speakers:
-Jean Lambert (Green Party Member of the European Parliament)
-Terri Jude (writer for the Independent)
-Maria Exall (Communication Workers' Union, national executive)
-Tamar Katz (an Israeli school students jailed for refusing to serve in the occupied Palestinian territories)
-Laura Schwartz ( Feminist Fightback)
-Houzan Mahmoud (Organisation of Women's Freedom in Iraq)
