8 Maart.Part 2.International Women’s Alliance

The International Women's Alliance (IWA) is a global alliance of militant grassroots-based women's organizations, institutions, alliances, networks and individuals committed to advancing national and social liberation, and gender equality. It is an anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, anti-patriarchy, anti-racist and anti-sexist alliance that aims to build international solidarity of women in the 21st century.

We, the women workers, peasants, indigenous, urban poor, professionals and academicians from Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe, Latin America and North America, are united in the goal of liberating women from historical oppression and exploitation and in establishing an alternative system founded on genuine democracy, freedom, justice, equality and peace.

We aspire for a society that recognizes, promotes and protects the rights and interests of women and is void of all forms of discrimination and violnce against women.

We strive to intensify local struggles and campaigns against imperialism and capitalism, strengthen international solidarity, and contribute to the people's struggle for national liberation, sovereignty and self-determination.
