Dear Women Occupiers!
It may be no strange coincidence that just as the Occupy movement is consolidating around the principle of non-violence--something we women are naturally good at--International Women's Day has arrived. LET'S SHOW SOME SOLIDARITY AND ATTEND THESE ACTIONS EN MASSE (Some of them overlap on March 8th, so try to attend some of both!):
WED., FEBRUARY 29TH: 6:30 pm WOMEN OCCUPY/CODEPINK 3/8 COSTUMING 2010 LINDEN, VENICE 90291
THURS., MARCH 1ST: 5 pm Coffee Bar, 600 Spring St., WOMEN AND ALLIES PLANNING FOR WOMEN AND ALLIES GA

THURSDAY, MARCH 8TH, INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY (SEE FLIER BELOW):
"INT. WOMEN’S DAY 2012: CALLING ALL SUPER S/HEROS"!
(Women led, Everyone invited)
Join Women Occupy, a national women-led community of the 99% initiated by CODEPINK, for a national day of action on International Women’s Day to break up big banks. Think SuperShero (or hero) costumes, Sheroics, and a REALLY REALLY Free Market. Have a B of A account– Why not shut it down and move your money to a local bank or credit union as part of the day’s action?
