H16 international womens day mobilization

And women across the world are mobilizing to take to the streets on March 8, International Women’s Day. In Spain, women are poised to stage their first 24-hour nationwide strike. Their motto: “If we stop, the world stops.” Other protest actions are planned in cities around the world, including here in New York City, where activists are calling for women to launch a 1-hour work stoppage, from 4 to 5 p.m., and then gather for a rally at Washington Square Park.
