International Women’s Day 2021: Lifting Each Other Up

The history and true spirit of International Women’s Day represents the resistance of generations of women fighting for their lives, and the lives of their communities and their families.
International Women’s Day represents the dream of living in a world where women don’t have to struggle to find refuge from violence, or poverty, or trauma.
International Women’s Day represents a world where women are revered rather than memorialized for fighting back against misogyny.
International Women’s Day represents the brilliance and labour of Black and Indigenous women and women of colour, and all of the ways that they have organized and stood on the frontlines of our movements.
International Women’s Day represents freedom from oppressive gender norms and essentialism and celebrates all women without question or judgement.
International Women’s Day represents the world we want to live in and the one that is worth fighting for – a world where every day is International Women’s Day.
A purple sky and landscape of green grass. A community of mostly BIPOC women and trans folks engaged in various activities, like painting a rainbow, giving mutual aid, supporting another up stairs, and community gardening. The text integrated into the image reads: "lifting each other up"; "Liberation for all"; "my body my choice;" "protect queer and trans kids"; "all bodies are good bodies" and "food justice." A larger text reads International Women's Day 2021.
