Feministisk solidaritet

"Dear sisters

This call is coming to you from a group of feminists from a few countries in the Middle East, getting together to create a regional feminist alliance (Women United for the Future of the Middle East), in these incredible times of struggle, victory and hope. Inspired by the power of people who transformed our region and our world in the past few weeks, we urgently feel the need for a feminist intervention in these historically defining times. We rely on a long history of women's struggles, in the Middle East and throughout the world, to end women's oppression. Our first collective action is taking to the streets of Middle East on international women's day, 8 March 2011. We ask you to support us by signing our call as organizations and as individuals. Your names are precious to us. If you want to support please respond to this email with your individual or organization's name (and logo if relevant).

Also, you are welcome to share with us one or two sentences, telling your reasons and wishes for joining this cause.

If you are a member of a feminist/women’s organization or network in the Middle East/North Africa, please join us. There are already marches planned in many countries. We want to unite our actions. Please send this invitation to other organizations you know.
If you are a feminist organization in other parts of the world, please support us by signing our call, and mentioning us in your 8 March events.
If you are a well-known individual feminist, please sign our call. Your names are precious to us.
Finally, you can reach out to media and spread the news of our united presence on the streets of the Middle East/North Africa.
Write to us at Send us the name and possibly the logo of your organization.

 In solidarity,

Women United for the Future of the Middle East
