“Decades of brutal global neoliberalism and now Trump’s presidency have provoked unprecedented mass struggle and a new global women’s movement,” a statement from organisers Socialist Action said. “We are women from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, including refugees, migrant workers and local women, to fight for our basic rights, against sexual violence and oppression.”
