You are warmly invited to the Unite London and Eastern region Women’s Committee International Women’s Day rally – Women in Struggle.

Come to hear about:

  • Women’s role historically in establishing the UK trade union movement through the Match Girls Strike of 1889 – the prelude to the founding of the “new” unions
  • The heroic self-sacrifice of the suffragette’s battle for the vote
  • The struggle of women internationally in the sweatshops and plantations of the world,
  • Women’s role in the fight against fascism
  • Women and the fight for Pensions, the Welfare State and Public Services
