|In time for the International Women’s Day, women across the world reaffirm that they are a powerful force to be reckoned with as they collectively fight against oppression and break down systemic and structural barriers.In the face of the pandemic, women in all their diversity – in the unions and factories, in farms and indigenous communities, in urban poor centers in structured organizations or informal movements – continued to mobilize and put themselves at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, and the struggle against the deepening political and socio-economic crises inherent to a patriarchal, colonial, racist and imperialist system. |
Thus, on this International Women’s day, we celebrate the billions of women who continue to raise our voices, strike down barriers, and call for collective action and solidarity. Now more than ever, we reaffirm that if women stop, the world stops!
