The Detroit branch of Workers World Party celebrated International
Working Women’s Day on March 17, saluting Warrior Woman Vanessa
Fluker, anti-foreclosure attorney and fighter. Debbie Johnson chaired a
rousing program that featured speakers Martha Grevatt on women’s many
roles in labor struggles, Tachae Davis on reviving International Women’s
Day in the U.S., and Kris Hamel on assassinated Irish freedom fighter
Mairead Farrell and the origins of women’s oppression and how to fight it.
During a delicious dinner prepared by WWP male comrades, Cheryl LaBash
presented stirring video clips of women’s struggles past and present.
