Women Strike!

JOIN US IN A TWO-DAY STRIKE TO PROTEST TRUMP, PENCE, AND THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESS' PLANS FOR US.

National Women's Liberation calls all women, girls, trans*, and nonbinary folks to strike January 20 - 21, 2017.

No work, paid or unpaid.

/// Pledge to Strike: www.womenstrike.org

Trump, Pence, and

the Republican Congress have made their anti-woman agenda clear and have promised to cut, undermine, eliminate, or privatize every social compact from public schools to Medicare to Social Security. They expect the family (that is, WOMEN) to fill in the gaps and pick up the pieces. NO WE WON'T.

After intense discussion during the Democratic primaries, these programs faded from the national conversation. Stand with us to demand the universal programs that women and all people need!

/// WE STRIKE FOR
An end to racist and sexual assaults, and all forms of bigotry
Reproductive freedom: full access and no coercion
National health care for all
A $15 minimum wage for all workers, no exceptions
Protection and expansion of Social Security
Free childcare and paid family leave
R-E-S-P-E-C-T

/// WE STRIKE FROM
Paid jobs, Emotional Labor, Childcare, Diapers, Housework, Cooking, Sweeping, Laundry, Dishes, Errands, Groceries, Fake smiles, Flirting, Makeup, Laundry, Shaving, Etc

Who is calling the Strike?

We are National Women's Liberation (NWL), the women who won the fight to get the Morning-After Pill (Emergency Contraception) over the counter and reintroduced “This Oppresses Women” stickers to fight sexist advertisers. NWL is a feminist group for women who want to fight back against male supremacy and win more freedom for women.

We believe that change comes about from the actions of everyday people—not politicians, the courts, lobbyists, or the media. The freedoms we have now were won by movements of women, organizing and fighting for change. We are funded by the dues of women, not corporations or their foundations. The leadership and participation of women of color is critical to the success of the women’s liberation movement; NWL addresses struggles particular to women of color and racism within the feminist movement by following the leadership of our Women of Color Caucus.

What is the Women of Color Caucus?

The Women of Color Caucus is an organizing think tank composed of women of color associated with NWL. As active leaders and organizers within the Women’s Liberation Movement, we recognize that a strong and viable movement must work for the interests and utilize the talents and experiences of women of color.

Women of color must meet separately from white women to better understand how white supremacy intersects with other forms of oppression, i.e. male supremacy, capitalism, imperialism, religious fundamentalism, and discrimination of women based on their sexual orientation. In this way, women of color will develop theory on how best to address racism within NWL, the Women's Liberation Movement in general, and our larger society. It is vital that women of color study and analyze our diverse experiences to better understand racism, sexism, and the insidious combination of both. In this way, women of color will develop theory to strengthen the larger Women’s Liberation Movement.
