TODAY: Women Occupying Wall Street Reclaim Feminism In Citywide Gathering

Posted 2 years ago on May 17, 2012, 2:08 a.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

1st feminist GA

Occupy Wall Street reignited a movement for economic justice. Now WOW — Women Occupying Wall Street — aims to do the same for feminism. They’re bringing together a broad range of New York City feminists—and unapologetically using the word—to launch a new, inclusive activism for gender justice and against the War on Women.

The First Feminist General Assembly is Thursday, May 17 at 6:30 in Washington Square Park.

Yes, it’s a meeting—but not just any meeting. The invitation list ranges from SisterSong: Women of Color Reproductive Justice Center to the Sex Workers Outreach Project, from the Granny Peace Brigade to Hollaback, a group of 20-somethings using cell phone cameras to broadcast the faces of street harassers. The conversation will be personal as well as political.

It’s as if the Suffragists were getting together with the Sixties reproductive rights activists. And feminist drummers. And men (OWS’s Men’s Circle) doing the childcare.

Gender justice is crucial to economic justice, say the organizers. No society is truly democratic without sexual and gender-identity freedom. The Recession and government cutbacks are hurting women and kids most. And all over the world economic and social progress depend on individuals’ control over their own reproductive lives and on freedom from gendered violence. Feminism opposes domination, by anyone of anyone.

there are two male controlled CORPORATE organisations mistakenly tolerated as charitable. they are CORPORATE CHRISTIANITY. putting an image of a man nailed to a cross into children's minds is CHILD ABUSE. telling children their mothers are sinners is GROOMING. the other is freemasonry which controls the system of property rights where our stolen money is stashed. they also control the psychopathic police. feminists must unite against christians and freemasons.

Good deal. I think that this is the group that will essentially move mountains.

Get an argument together and get back to me. Right now, the only thing you have is your own stupidity.

Reminds me of the joke:

Q: How many feminists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: That's not funny!

Excellent! We must ceaselessly fight against sexism. Communism, socialism, sexism there is a single world evil. You must create a feminist capitalism equal opportunities for all people. These problems are particularly relevant for Russia and Arab countries. For example, Russia is a wild propaganda of sexism, women from morning till evening pours a continuous stream of lies.
