Women's Strike kicks off in Switzerland
Kurdish women will also be present at the strike in various Swiss cities with a variety of initiatives.
Today women across Switzerland will go on strike.
The women's strike, said the organizers, has been organised not just “to show that without the visible and invisible work of women everything stops; we also fight for effective equality now and everywhere! The more multifaceted the strike is, the better it will be!”
Under the motto “Together we are strong” the organisers invited all women living in Switzerland to join the strike in whatever way they want and can. Kurdish women will also be present at the strike in various Swiss cities with a variety of initiatives.
In Bern for example the Kurdish women will join the marches organised in different part of the city. In Basel, Rosa and TJA will organise a photo exhibition in solidarity with the women in prison. A Jineoloji seminar will also be given.
In Zurich, the Beritan Women's Council will perform a dance show symbolizing violence against women. A woman activist will be addressing the strike from Rojava.
