Come out for a Sex Worker Contingent at the International Women’s Strike, March 8, 5pm, Oscar Grant Plaza, Oakland

Sex workers are taking part in the International Women’s Strike (IWS), with women in over 40 countries participating.  A Declaration from the Global Sex Worker Movement has been issued which says some of the reasons why sex workers are striking:
On March 8, in the spirit of solidarity as part of the International Women’s Strike, sex workers will strike against poverty, criminalization and stigma, whether by refusing to go to work, charging double rates or by any other action possible.”
The Women’s March on Washington is calling for a ‘Day without A Woman’ on March 8 too, International Women’s Day. The contingent is part of the IWS march in Oakland.
