Last quote by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

The call for a day of action in support of a radical agenda that recognises all women has resonated with thousands let down by mainstream feminism. Mainstream feminism has failed. Perhaps the most shocking example is the life expectancy of black trans women – in Latin America, it’s 35 years. The brutality of that statistic was on display again when two black trans women in New Orleans were killed within a matter of days last February. Since the new year, there are reports that seven transgender women across the US have been killed. The reality of poverty, violence, and discrimination in the lives of trans women of colour is just one reason why organisers of today’s Women’s Strike have mobilised to revert the innocuous “women’s month” back to its radical predecessor known as International Women’s Day.
