We are having an important international women’s conference in Montreal in August 2010 and we want you to join us in this project. The conference, For a Global Militant Women’s Movement in the 21st Century! will bring together women from around the world. You will be able to reflect on the women’s rights movement in the last 100 years, honour its pioneers, get an action plan to advance this movement, and form an International Women’s Alliance.

Who are we: March 8 Committee of Women of Diverse Origins – a collective of grassroots women’s organizations from a dozen different cultural communities in Montreal. We have been organizing a yearly International Women’s Day event for the past nine years. We have brought in speakers from around the world, women rooted in daily struggles against war, violence, and for women’s and human rights and social progress. We have shared our own experiences and have widened our horizons and our understanding. We have strengthened links locally and internationally and wish to solidify these in an International Women’ s Alliance.

Gabriela Philippines is another convener of this conference. It is the most important women’s umbrella organization in the Philippines representing 200 groups with over 100,000 members. Gabriela has been an inspiration world-wide for grassroots organizing of women, and has taken its struggle from the Parliament of the streets to within official Parliamentary institutions. The Gabriela Women’s Partylist has two representatives in the Philippine Congress.
