08 March 2023 – International Working Women’s Day

8 March 2023 @ 8 h 00 min - 31 March 2023 @ 17 h 00 min CET

La Via Campesina is calling for global solidarity actions on 8th March 2023, the International Working Women’s Day. As peasants, landless women, indigenous women, fisherfolk, pastoralists, farmworkers, migrants, and diversity organizations within La Via Campesina, we acknowledge the specific struggles, the organization, the development of popular feminism, and the rebellion and resistance of women who fight on their own land and around the world to defend sustainability, food sovereignty, and social justice.

As we prepare for La Via Campesina’s 8th International Conference and 6th International Women’s Assembly, scheduled to take place from November 23 to 28 in Nicaragua, we are actively working on the creation of the Peasant and Popular Feminism movement.

Join the movement! #8M23

  • We are actively preparing for #8M23 by creating banners, organizing public protests, and taking direct action.
  • Join and follow us on social media using hashtags such as #WomenInStruggle#FoodSovereigntyNOW#8ConfLVC, and #8M23.
  • Participate in symbolic actions such as marches, forums, fairs, and public speaking events to demand recognition of our rights in government policies and justice, and to put an end to violence against women and marginalized communities.

Please send your press releases, statements, photos, and videos to communications@viacampesina.org

We also invite you to make your own posters by downloading our templates and translating them into your own language. All the necessary resources for communication are available for download here.
