TORONTO, March 4, 2015 /CNW/ – Thousands of women will march through the downtown streets on Saturday March 7 in North America’s largest International Women’s Day demonstration.
Organized by a coalition of community, students and labour and sponsored by Women Working with Immigrant Women, this year’s theme is “Our Bodies, Our Territories, Our Communities” and organized in solidarity with World March of Women events taking place across Canada.
Speakers will address the crisis of murdered and missing Aboriginal women, sexual violence and racial injustice. In addition, striking university workers will speak about the problems with precarious work and the need for good jobs for all.
