International Women’s Day 2020

This #IWD2020 we’re all fighting for a more equal world, improving the material reality for women and fighting bias against anyone who experiences misogyny or sexism because of who they are.

With real term incomes stagnating, the globe entering an unprecedented climate disaster and authoritarian regimes stripping women’s and minorities’ rights to the bone, it’s more important than ever to mark International Women’s Day.

As always, the first to feel the squashing weight of heightened systemic oppression are women and other gender minorities, especially those who are poor or of colour. The global pushback against women’s – and trans – rights is alarming but not entirely unexpected. The simultaneous battles for equality must rage on then, together, if we’re to succeed.

It’s been over a century since IWD was first celebrated. IWD is a moment to remind ourselves of the strength in collective action. Of the strength in uplifting the work of incredible feminists who have fought tirelessly against patriarchy and of those women who dare people to think of a future where communities of care can be built.

One day of spotlight a year is hardly worthy of the acute crises facing women across the globe, who need us to all be united  in solidarity with them. More than that, they need us to open our wallets and donate to their community projects, to fight for migrant rights and to willingly be led by a strong, international community of galvanisers.

Liberation for all and for always.
Gendered Intelligence.
