WTF is the Women’s Strike?

The Women’s Strike in Britain began with women coming together to explore our visions of the red feminist horizon – what it could look like and how, crucially – how we could get there. The argument that we want to make is that the Women’s Strike is not a one-day event set to coincide with […]
