Nearly 100 protesters and activists gathered on March 8th, the 100th anniversary of the first International Women’s Day to protest the wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan and the continued marginalization of women in the U.S. and around the world.
It was called by the Association of Filipinas, Feminists Fighting Imperialism, Re-feudalization, & Marginalization. It was supported by a broad coalition of organizations including the Alliance for Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines, the ANSWER Coalition, KmB Pro-People Youth, March Forward!, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, and others who came together to fight back and say no to continued wars overseas and raise awareness about the systematic sexism encountered by women both within and outside of the military.
