WOMEN and GENDER
Today in the midst of sickness, hunger, lockdowns, violence and repression we raise our voice for our vision of a transformed and just world where women are free from discrimination, oppression and exploitation, where no woman needs to live in hunger or fear or insecurity, and every woman enjoys a life of dignity.
We want alternative development models that center people and planet, uphold human rights, food sovereignty and climate justice. We demand that our voices be heard, heeded and protected. We want systemic change, and we want it now!
International Women’s day comes at a time of multiple crises for women especially in impoverished communities in the South – among others, the crises of food, land, water and climate change.
