In Celebration of Women's History Month
CWAers Kick Off Women’s History Month
March is Women’s History Month. As part of the celebration, a group of CWA activists attended the International Women’s Alliance (IWA) Political Conference in Washington, D.C. They joined hundreds of people representing organizations across IWA. The participants engaged in discussions on advancing the working women's agenda and the global women's rights movement and marched together to take a stand against economic exploitation.
In honor of Women’s History Month, the CWA Human Rights Department is hosting a special virtual event on Tuesday, March 21, at 7pm EST, with Ellen Cassedy, a labor leader of the renowned 9to5 Movement. The 9to5 Movement was not only the inspiration for the iconic film and song, 9 to 5, but it is a testament to the fact that anyone can organize—and win. Click here to register.
In addition to the town hall, you can take a deeper dive into learning about the compelling organizing of these women through Ellen’s new book, Working 9 to 5: A women’s movement, a labor union, and the iconic movie. For 25% off, enter the promotional code WORKING25 at checkout.
