International Women's Strike Solidarity Teach-In
March 8, Ohio State University
The International Women’s Day Solidarity Teach-In will be a day-long series of teach-ins on women's rights and work and the current threats to vulnerable populations around the world, including immigrants, refugees, trans men and women, and disabled people. The Solidarity Teach-In will be an "alternative school" for the day, so that students, faculty, and community members can participate in the call for a nation-wide women's strike, while also coming together for a day of learning, political debate, and movement building. We invite staff from across campus and workers from the community to attend, as well as professors and other instructors to bring their classes out to the teach-ins, and for students to come individually as part of this strike. We encourage attendees to wear red, the color of solidarity chosen by the national organizers of the day of action.
In addition to inviting speakers, organizations will be tabling at the event in order to get folks involved in movements on and around campus. We also hope to showcase art in all its forms throughout the day. We believe it is essential that we make connections among our movements and across this campus to effectively fight against the attacks on human rights we see everyday in our country and around the world, especially in the current political moment.
Watch our Facebook page “International Women's Strike Solidarity Teach-In” for a detailed agenda for the day coming soon.

And if you are an artist who is a woman, or identifies as a woman and are interested in participating in the exhibition, please email examples of your recent work along with your concept for the show to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Pussy Grabs Back is part of a neighborhood Silence is Death exhibition that explores the social and political role of creatives to ignite change, empower the people and challenge hatred in our community. We unite to celebrate our humanity. We unite to take a stand against hate. We have the power to eliminate hate when we are united. All great revolutions are fueled by creatives.
