Workers Organising to Win! (WOW!) online meeting

For a union & unemployed fightback: Lessons from the 1930s Depression

As the line between working and being jobless disintegrates, workers’ sense of common cause is growing, with low-paid women and immigrants in the lead. In this worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, we can learn from unemployed workers’ organising alongside unionists in the 1930s. An international demand from the Depression, revived by WOW!, was for a shorter working week with no reduction in pay (“Thirty hours’ work for forty hours’ pay”). This measure would not only reduce unemployment, but would be a lifesaver to women suffering a triple workday due to mounting family duties during COVID.

This meeting will discuss the 1930s unemployed movement in Australia. We’ll explore demands for today, which can bring together workers of all genders — both in and out of work — as a fighting force against the profiteers.

To join in this online discussion, register here.

Check out WOW!’s demands here.

WOW! is a campaign initiated by Radical Women. For more info, email WOW! womenworkers.wow@gmail.com


POSTPONED: PLEASE STAY TUNED!
Why feminists of all genders must unite to defeat transphobia!



RW has been planning this discussion to align in solidarity with the Trans Pride March. Because the march is postponed until further notice, due to COVID-19, so is this meeting. Please watch out for an update from RW on the new date and arrangements.

Radical Women is a socialist feminist organisation, which stands firmly against both transphobia and a rigid gender binary. This meeting will discuss how transphobia, along with homophobia and sexism, has its roots in the rise of private property and the overthrow of ancient matriarchy.

We’ll learn how to answer the biological determinist views of Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists. We will also celebrate the leadership of the multiracial modern-day transgender warriors who are increasingly visible and fighting back. Our focus will be on trans, CIS and non-binary feminist unity — together, we have a world to win!

Dinner served at 6.30pm for a $10 donation - Discussion kicking off at 7.00 pm.
ALL GENDERS WELCOME!
