Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation’s contingent for the 2019 Women's March Los Angeles as we say: The women’s struggle has no borders!

From the millions of immigrant women facing violence at the borders, deportation and separation from their families to the continuing struggle in Palestine for liberation, to the fight to end sexual violence, for equal pay, for maternity leave, for the right to abortion and control over our bodies, for healthcare, we will be marching in solidarity with the women’s struggle here and abroad. The liberation of women means fighting for liberation outside of the U.S. borders.

While the United States continues funding endless wars, we must remember Imperialism is responsible for the destruction of women’s rights around the world along with their lands and resources. Imperialism forces millions of women and their children into poorly-resourced refugee camps, facing enormous challenges to accessing basic services, in particular, reproductive healthcare. Displacement also amplifies the economic and security factors that drive early marriage, making young girls even more vulnerable to this form of abuse.

We’ve seen the Trump agenda wage attack after attack on our immigrant and refugee communities: From the Muslim Ban, to the repeal of DACA, the end of TPS, and now the government shutdown in a racist attempt to build a wall, these attacks on immigrant communities is a feminist issue because it is women, and more importantly immigrant women who are subjected to extreme levels of exploitation and poverty, while bearing the burden of doing “women’s work”.

Women have always been on the frontlines of these struggles. We are marching for all freedom fighters and people in their quest for liberation from patriarchy, bigotry, violence from the state and vigilantes. We are marching for Cyntoia Brown, for Roxsana Hernandez, for Claudia Patricia Gonzalez. The struggle for women's liberation goes hand in hand with the struggle against US Imperialist wars which murder countless innocent civilians and forces millions of women into sex or human labor trafficking.
