Although the feminist revolution could have crushed the patriarchy and capitalism, the corresponding political movement was fatally fragmented from ts inception because of the breadth of its themes. But yesterday's international women’s strike recombined the spirit of the movement in a vision that encompasses everything: sexual and reproductive self-determination, job insecurity, migration, femicide and male violence, sexism, racism and homophobia.
Today’s International Women's Day mobilisations echo back to the civil rights movement, the anti-Vietnam war protests, the uprisings against colonial powers, and the more recent uprisings across Africa’s north and the Middle East. Often missing from the history books, women were also in the forefront of these movements.
