Wages for Housework and the Global Women’s Strike.
We are an international grassroots network campaigning for recognition and payment for all caring work, in the home and outside. Mothers and other carers are entitled to a living wage – in cash, land, non-polluting technology…
Corporate greed and military conquest are impoverishing us, destroying the climate and the world. We campaign for a caring economy where human beings and all life are central, not a means to an end.
We campaign to end power relations of sex, race, class, income, nation, immigration status, city and countryside, age, disability, occupation, gender identity, North and South … (See organisations part of GWS.) We work with Payday, a network of men who share our aims.
Our campaigns include:
Ending poverty, welfare cuts, detention, deportation / a care income for all carers of people, the land and the natural world / domestic workers’ rights / pay equity / justice for survivors of rape and domestic violence / challenging racism, disability racism, queer discrimination, transphobia / decriminalising sex work / stopping the state taking children from their mothers / opposing apartheid, war, genocide, military occupation, corporate land grabs / supporting human rights defenders, refuseniks / ending the death penalty and solitary confinement … we are all fighting for climate justice and survival.
