International Women's Day 2010

IWD originated in the USA in 1908, when women garment workers held demonstrations protesting against their appalling and  dangerous working conditions. The exploitation continues as global capitalism increases its demands for ever lower wages and conditions for workers.

All unions must demand the right to work, the right to equal pay and full rights for women workers.

The Victorian Trades Hall Council is celebrating IWD on Friday 12 March at the VTHC with the launch of the Anna Stewart Memorial Project for Women Unionists DVD.

The Anna Stewart Memorial Project Dates for 2010 are:
May intake - Monday 3 May - Friday 14 May 2010
October intake - Monday 11 October - Friday 22 October 2010
