Following the International Women's Strike Solidarity Teach-in, the Columbus Coalition for International Working Women's Day is calling for a rally on OSU's campus.
Facebook event for the Teach-in:
On January 21st millions of people took to the streets to demand an end to sexism and to reject Trump's anti-women, anti-LGBTQ, anti-immigrant attacks! All women, especially women of color and trans women who stand to face the biggest attacks under Trump's new administration of billionaires - January 20th and 21st showed the size of our movement, now let's show our strength!
This year is the 106th year anniversary of International Working Women's Day (IWWD) and on MARCH 8TH let's take a major action in solidarity as a united movement of all working people to stand in solidarity against attacks on womens' rights and livelihoods. An injury to one is an injury to all!
The Columbus Coalition for International Working Women's Day is a collaboration with the Columbus branches of the International Socialist Organization, Socialist Alternative, and the Democratic Socialists of America.
We are interested in working with other women's organizations, labor unions, political organizations!
The Rally will Begin at OSU at 3:00PM
We will start at Thompson Statue and march down to the OSU Union.

We also encourage everyone to attend the Women's March Organization for A Day Without a Woman event at Goodale Park from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM
*** We are asking Businesses between OSU and Goodale Park to close from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM to show support for Women's Day and Women Workers everywhere****
