The New York City branch of Workers World Party held an International Working Women’s Month public forum March 18 focused on “The global economic crisis: Women, growing fightback and socialism.” Issues discussed included cuts in education, attacks on public sector unions and FBI repression, as well as imperialist intervention in Libya, the mass upsurge in Egypt and Japan’s nuclear crisis. WWP speakers, pictured left to right, were program moderator Ellen Catalinotto, Joyce Chediac, Monica Moorehead, Gavrielle Gemma and LeiLani Dowell. Jess Sundin, a Freedom Road Socialist Organization member, also spoke on the struggle against grand jury subpoenas imposed on progressive activists in the Midwest.
