International Women's Day! 100 years

Public meeting: Feminism today
6-9.30pm Wednesday 10 March
Falmer House, Room 126 at the University of Sussex

This is a joint meeting of Brighton and Sussex Socialist Students to celebrate 100 years of International Women's Day. These days it seems International Women's Day has become little more than a glossy promotional event for "women friendly" businesses or at best a vague "celebration" of women's achievements. Yet its roots 100 years ago are in the socialist movement of the early 20th century and it quickly became a focal point for the early struggles of working class women internationally for better working conditions, for the right to vote and against the oppression they faced as women. All welcome.
