Global Women's Strike demands
Payment for all caring work - in wages, pensions, land & other resources. What is more valuable than raising children & caring for others? Invest in life & welfare, not military budgets or prisons
Pay equity for all, women & men, in the global market.
Food security for breastfeeding mothers, paid maternity leave and maternity breaks. Stop penalizing us for being women.
Don't pay 'Third World debt'. We owe nothing, they owe us.
Accessible clean water, healthcare, housing, transport, literacy.
Non-polluting energy & technology which shortens the hours we work. We all need cookers, fridges, washing machines, computers, & time off!
Protection & asylum from all violence & persecution, including by family members & people in positions of authority.
Freedom of movement. Capital travels freely, why not people?
