MOTHERS' MARCH ? Sat 13 March, 2pm Trafalgar Sq, to Parliament Sq

From:
Global Women's Strike

An International Women?s Day and Mother?s Day Event

Mothers March & Speak Out

For recognition and support for all the work
we contribute to society

Bring your banners, placards and demands.

Assemble 2pm Trafalgar Sq
March to Parliament Sq
Westminster, London SW1 ALL WELCOME

mothering is hard work
The survival of the human race depends on the caring work of mothers. But we get no recognition or support. Only blame when things go wrong. And we?re even expected to do more work to feed the family, often on the lowest pay.
every mother is
a working mother
Events also in: Guyana, Haiti, India, Mexico, Peru, US
MEN: Join the contingent of fathers & other male carers who support mothers.

mothers, this march is for you who are raising children in cities, towns or villages l Who are separated from your children or have lost children l Who are surviving war & environmental disaster l Who are seeking asylum l For you who are grandmothers, non-biological mothers, domestic workers & other women doing caring work l For you who have disabilities or have a child with disabilities l Who are fighting for justice for loved ones l Who have been raped l Who are students & mothers l Who are sex workers supporting families l Who have been criminalised by poverty l Who want to have children but haven?t been able to l For you mothers of every race, age, passport, income, sexuality & occupation l For all of us who are overworked & underpaid.

Our demand is: invest in caring not killing

This March sounds great! I'll be there. Mothers definitely need more recognition, support and what about payment!
