Honor Palestinian women: Support Workers World

In the spirit of International Working Women’s Day, March 8, Workers World  newspaper hails women workers and oppressed people in the U.S. and worldwide, especially those under the gun of imperialism. This year we honor our Palestinian comrades — those under siege from U.S.-backed Israeli militarism in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.  

WW admires their bravery and that of the Palestinian resistance forces. We support the women and girls who have been injured, lost families, housing, denied food, imprisoned, tortured and sexually assaulted by Israeli soldiers. Our newspaper tells the truth about this and exposes U.S. media and Israeli government lies.

WW doesn’t just show solidarity on March 8 or only in March, which Congress proclaimed “Women’s History Month” in 1987. Our articles side with women and LGBTQ+ people within the multinational, multigender global working class and with all oppressed by imperialist war and capitalist exploitation.

WW views “every struggle as a woman’s struggle,” whether for affordable housing, livable-wage jobs, unionization, free medical care, guaranteed reproductive rights, voting rights, a clean environment or opposing wars. Our paper allies with women whose children have been killed by racist police. 

Reactionaries are fiercely attacking reproductive rights and health care. Their goal: a countrywide abortion ban. The unelected Supreme Court majority overturned abortion rights, won by a mass movement. Their dangerous ruling dealt a racist, misogynist and classist blow to millions. WW hails the struggles for reproductive justice, and calls for a militant, independent mass movement to win back this right.

WW’s articles show solidarity with exploited Black, Latine, Asian, Arab, Indigenous and immigrant women workers. We applaud young women, people of color and  LGBTQ2S+ people fighting to unionize against corporate behemoths.  

Socialists have long recognized the only way to fundamentally improve women’s lives is through the anti-capitalist struggle, as propounded by IWWD’s European socialist founders in 1910. WW espouses this view and boldly states that socialism is the only system that can ensure real liberation for women, workers and oppressed people here and worldwide.

WW needs your support!  

This pro-worker newspaper depends on our readers’ backing. The WW Supporter Program was launched 47 years ago to help print this socialist newspaper and later fund workers.org., where new articles are posted daily and the weekly paper’s PDF is displayed.

Workers.org contains news and analyses of global and U.S. struggles, bulletins from national liberation movements and articles translated by our staff. Our writer-organizers report on anti-capitalist struggles and people’s movements against racism and war and for the rights of women, workers, migrants, LGTBQ2S+ and disabled people. The website is a resource for political activists. 

While WW’s staff is voluntary, the 12 annually printed issues and the website incur expenses. Although many online publications require payments to read their articles, WW does not. Our articles are free to all readers.

Join the WW Supporter Program: Can you donate $50, $100 or $200 a year? Contributing $50 or more will entitle you to receive the 12 print issues a year, email links to articles posted online and, upon request, the book “What road to socialism?”

Your donations can help get class truth to more readers — and are appreciated. Write monthly or annual checks to Workers World. Mail them with your name, address and email to Workers World, 121 West 27th St., Rm. 404, New York, NY 10001.
