We are open to people of any gender attending the meeting but the strike will led by and prioritise the voices of women and non-binary people. We are trans and sex worker inclusive. We respectfully suggest that men avoid dominating discussion and that they also volunteer for tasks which are traditionally done by women e.g. cooking, cleaning, care.

The meeting will be kid friendly – we will organise care and food for everyone
