International Women’s Day, from its founding, is a day rooted in the fight against war and occupation, from the years leading to the first world war and through the many brutal wars the world has seen up to today. For over 100 years International Women’s Day has been marked with the heroic struggle of women for equal rights, fair working conditions and the right to work, suffrage and against violence against women. Under war and occupation, women are the most impacted as they face physical and sexual violence, and struggle to protect and provide for the families that they are the center of. But under such circumstances women are known to take the lead in struggles for liberation and against war and occupation. Around the world today women are taking the lead in struggles for a better world!

Join MAWO in celebrating International Women’s Day with a evening of multimedia, speakers and cultural activities.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
