Birmingham: Women’s Strike: Dinner, Discussion & Dancing!

8 March at 19:00–23:00 UTC

The Edge, 79-81 Cheapside, B12 0QH Birmingham

Birmingham Women’s Strike Assembly invites you to an evening of sharing food, discussion and dancing!

After a day’s strike from our gendered labour we want to come together to share food and ideas, as well as have some fun and see some great performances from the local music, DJ and poetry scene in Birmingham.

After building towards this recognition of women’s labour – both waged and unwaged – in the UK and internationally we want to invite people to discuss what it means to strike, why we strike, and barriers to striking. We also plan to invite speakers from a variety of campaigns to speak on what they are working on, and for us to think together about how we can build upon the growing feminist movement in the city.

There will be a bar with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available. We will be asking for a small suggested donation to help pay our performers and for the lovely space!
