"International Women's Struggle Day": World March of Women #IWD2019 Statement


In every part of the world, we women are all coming out into the streets to rejoice in the collective strength that we are building together, through our organization. Marching allows us to reclaim our silenced voices and memories.
Our collective struggle has challenged the patriarchy, denormalized violence against our bodies and demanded recognition for our work and for our contributions to the economy and for society as a whole.

Marielle Franco PRESENTE!

It is with a heavy heart that we write to you today to honor the life of Marielle Franco, a fierce Black, Queer, feminist leader from Brazil who was murdered last Wednesday, March 14th. Marielle Franco was a city council member representing the Maré Favela in Rio de Janeiro, where she grew up. She was outspoken against police brutality and the criminalization of poor and working class black communities in Brazil. She stood for women’s rights, worker’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and the rights of all marginalized peoples.
