into the social sector, including education
Privatization of social services and
reduced social protection is at the heart
of South America’s wave of neoliberal
governments promoting austerity policies
that deepen structural gender inequalities.
Coupled with the rise of the
conservative right in South America
-including Brazil’s fascist new government,
feminist movements from the
South understand this is no time for
moderate calls for equality and balance.
In Uruguay, the #8M call to action
states: “Ante el fascismo, más feminismo”
(In front of fascism, we need
more feminism!). It is a call for international
feminist solidarity to resist
daily threats that aim to bring us back
centuries when it comes to social and
gender justice and rights. It is also a
warning that feminist movements are
forging new realities not only about
equality, but about radical change.
So on this International Women’s
Day we call for a return to its radical
roots centred on workers rights and
justice. This doesn’t call for balance.
It calls for a radical transformation of
society based on the twin principles of
equity and justice.

Meaningful criminal justice reforms
Legislators in New York have an
historic opportunity to lead New York
To these lawmakers we say these
words: hold the line for justice. Most
have, but we still need support from
State Senators Monica Martinez, Kevin
Thomas and Anna Kaplan.
Black people and all communities of
color have been waiting for meaningful
criminal justice reforms for decades.
We can’t wait any longer.
We look forward to celebrating the
fruits of our labor – progress toward
true freedom and justice for all –
