This call for a Women’s Global Strike on 8 March 2021 was initiated by the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD), a leading network of feminist organisations and grassroots activists in Asia Pacific. The International Network for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, ESCR-Net, and Women’s March Global are currently part of the Global Steering Group of the campaign, and a diverse range of movements and organisations are providing leadership at the regional and national levels. The calls have spread and seen support globally, with leadership from over 90 organisations and movements.
