Voices from the International Women's Strike

Audio not available
On March 8, hundreds of thousands women from around the globe took action as part of the International Women’s Strike. Here in New York, a broad coalition of feminist grass-roots organizations, worker centers, cooperatives, unions, immigrants’ rights groups, community-based organizations and socialist groups rallied and marched in lower Manhattan.

In this segment, U.S. strike organizer Tithi Bhattacharya tells a rally what’s at stake, and Anshu from Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM) talks about organizing South Asian workers here in New York.
