Celebrating International Womyn’s Day: Honoring Peasant Women & Their Work

The importance of the International Womyn’s Day which is celebrated on March 8 is to represent the power of the working class womyn coming together to demand an end to exploitation & oppression of womyn. And, the struggle still alive but womyn keep fighting back for respect, acknowledgement and to stop violence against womyn. We must continue working together to reclaim our voice.

This year we are honoring Peasant Womyn by acknowledging their work. Peasant womyn flourish the land with their love and many cases resisting and fighting against the conditions impose by imperialism and other forms of reaction.

This year we are building on a platform to celebrate the traditions, culture and rituals of Peasant Womyn who are we, our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and friends. A space to embrace & share our love, work and resistance for the land with live:

Herstory: Peasant Womyn guiding us with their stories
Poetry
Spoken word
Music
Open Circle for all attendees to honor their grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, friends.
