International women's day Mass protest

A call for mass walkout protest for international women's day, to end:

An end to gender-based violence and harassment;

Closure of the gender pay gap;

An end to precarious conditions in work and housing;

Solidarity with the struggle for abortion rights in the North.

The last one is probably the only realistic one. Will you be walking out for international women's day?

There is no gender pay gap.

Am all in favour of a mass walkout in protest against International Women's Day. It is a nonsense. Women especially need to be seen to condemn that kind of sexism. Abolishing International womens day must be the aim.

Certainly not. That would be equally sexist. Gender protests of all varieties are a despicable thing, and protesting against them to be supported.

After hours is the best advertising for why it's still needed. You will all be on bleating about men's day, nasty feminists and how women have it sooo easy .
It would give you a pain in your hole.

Jesus...how can you debate with people who believe the Patriarchy is screwing women out of wages! Or that women aren't capable of toxic behaviour....it must be getting embarrassing for those male feminists!

No one has it easy.

Women however, despite not being able to elect feminists in a democratic manner, have access to way more power and influence than they deserve...all because, the most privileged people on this planet, middle to upper class white women in the developed world... have been convinced that they have been oppressed by the magical, omni present "Patriarchy"...you couldn't make this up!

The male feminists and the feminazis are welcome to hit the streets.

The rest of us (women and men) might actually get some work done.
