The feminist strike can include as many forms of striking as there are of women’s and feminized labor—striking both from paid work and from unpaid domestic and care work, from gender mandates and expectations, whether recognized by official institutions or not. It also includes the creation of times and spaces for us to be together, to start enacting a feminist world.
Yet, the pandemic has left us isolated like never before. While public strike actions have been called in some cities, in others, where gatherings are prohibited, people are displaying signs or flags in their windows to show their participation or participating in virtual events. In order to combat the double isolation of the pandemic and domestic enclosures, we want to create ways to share our strikes.
