Happy International Women's Day March 8, 2010

The first International Women's Day was inspired by the 13-week strike of 30,000 women shirtwaist makers in New York in 1909. In 1910, at the Second International Conference of Socialist Women, Clara Zetkin's proposal was adopted that March 8 be a day of solidarity for women workers throughout the world and for the right of women to vote.

In this centennial year, we carry forward the goals and aspirations for a new world based on peace not war and equality not exploitation

* Joining together to close the gap in employment, health care, education, housing and all aspects of life

* Building the multi-racial grassroots movement for job creation with union rights to solve the economic crisis

* Celebrating leadership to reorder priorities for peace, economic and social justice and equality for today and tomorrow
