International Women’s Day in Minneapolis
50 people gathered Minneapolis March 7, 2010, to celebrate International Women’s Day. The event, organized by Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack! (FRSO), included speeches, a showing of the film The Eyes of the Rainbow – a documentary about Assata Shakur – and brief toasts from trade union, anti-war, student and welfare rights organizers.
Leaders of FRSO and the FMLN Committee of Minnesota spoke at the program.
Angella Khan, a member of Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack! and the Welfare Rights Committee, welcomed people to the event, noting the great contributions women have made to the people’s struggle.
Jess Sundin of FRSO stated, “International Women’s Day is a day to stand up and fight back, to demand full equality in society, and to take our place in the forefront of people’s struggles. On International Women’s Day we should raise the special demands of women for equality in society and the demands of work-class women and women of color must be at the center of our agenda. At the same time, International Women’s Day should celebrate the special contributions of women to the people’s struggles on all fronts. We make up half of the population. Society can’t be transformed without the full participation and leadership all working-class women.”
