Inaugural Meeting

Workers Organising to Win! (WOW!)

During Victoria's lockdown, women working in hard-hit industries came together to brainstorm what to do. These informal zoom gatherings resulted in a statement — “Women workers’ answer to COVID: Capitalism caused the crisis, workers can solve it!” — with winning demands that put control into workers’ hands.

Now, as COVID red zones proliferate, more infectious strains appear and governments put profit's health above people's lives, it’s time to organise!

Come to WOW!’s first meeting, and let’s start strategising for taking these demands into our unions, workplaces and communities. Bring your ideas, skills and know-how. All genders are welcome!

Register for the online inaugural meeting here. WOW! Meeting

Online organising brainstorm

This practical statement of demands — developed by working women hit hard by the pandemic — has just been publicly launched. The grassroots organising is now ready to begin!

At the launch on 8 December of this initiative by Radical Women, people wanted to come back and talk about taking these demands into their unions, workplaces and community networks. So this brainstorm is for everyone who wants to know more and get involved. Come with your ideas, questions and energy!

You can access the statement here.

POSTPONED: PLEASE STAY TUNED!
Why feminists of all genders must unite to defeat transphobia!



RW has been planning this discussion to align in solidarity with the Trans Pride March. Because the march is postponed until further notice, due to COVID-19, so is this meeting. Please watch out for an update from RW on the new date and arrangements.

Radical Women is a socialist feminist organisation, which stands firmly against both transphobia and a rigid gender binary. This meeting will discuss how transphobia, along with homophobia and sexism, has its roots in the rise of private property and the overthrow of ancient matriarchy.

We’ll learn how to answer the biological determinist views of Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists. We will also celebrate the leadership of the multiracial modern-day transgender warriors who are increasingly visible and fighting back. Our focus will be on trans, CIS and non-binary feminist unity — together, we have a world to win!

Dinner served at 6.30pm for a $10 donation - Discussion kicking off at 7.00 pm.
ALL GENDERS WELCOME!
