RISE 2020: Happy International Women’s Day
“International Women’s Day was initiated at the 1910 International Socialist Women’s conference to annually honor working women around the world. This day is to cherish, respect and honor the dignity of women workers - farmers, nurses, mothers, restaurant workers, factory workers, domestic workers, teachers, retail workers - and to demand one fair wage, equal pay for equal work, healthcare, and safety on the job free from harassment, poor working conditions and accidents. It’s a day to rise with our sisters in solidarity to make sure those who work the hardest are treated the most fairly.” – Eve Ensler
