Women’s March – Hawai‘i is partnering with the AiKea Movement , UNITE HERE Local 5, and the Hawaii State Teachers Association to organize an International Women’s Day Action on Wednesday, March 8th from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without a Woman.
Bring SIGNS. We are making signs to honor women workers with the slogan “She Persisted,” made (in)famous after Senator Mitch McConnell silenced Senator Elizabeth Warren in the middle of her speech. We welcome you to make your own signs, honoring the strong and persistent women in your life. If you would like us to help you make a sign, send a photo of a woman you would like to honor to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Historically, International Women’s Day has focused on the working conditions of women. Women an people of color experience workplace injury, sexual harrassment, unequal pay, and other forms of injustice at higher rates. Nevertheless, women workers persist. They lead the change in fighting for safe working conditions, equality, and economic justice.
For International Women’s Day 2017, we’re asking you to #BeBoldForChange. Call on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better world.
