Today is International Women’s Day and marks Feminists in Struggle’s 1 year anniversary! We want to thank everyone who has joined us in the struggle to reignite a strong women’s movement in order to finish the job First Wave and Second Wave feminists began. We are so grateful for their sacrifices and contributions and we acknowledge all the women working for the global liberation of women around the world.
We particularly want to recognize the women of the #MeToo Movement who took personal risk to come forward to hold sexual predators accountable, the women behind the Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights, and the efforts of organizations like Equal Means Equal that have worked tirelessly to bring the Equal Rights Amendment to the finish line. It was 100 years ago this year that First Wave feminists won the right to vote, and 97 years after its first introduction that the ERA reached the milestone of the 38th state for ratification!!
We look forward to many more accomplishments of present-day feminists to fight back against the enemies of women’s freedom and autonomy. Please join us at Feminist Struggle and help us continue the struggle for the liberation of all women!
