The dozens of workers, both women and men and of all races, picketed under the banner of Equality. They demanded equality for immigrants, equality for women, and equality for black workers, and they chanted for hours in Spanish, Creole, and English. The fight for women’s liberation is a fight for equality, it is also a workers’ fight.

This was a mobilization of the working class fighting for a contract but knowing that the struggle for women’s rights is intimately bound up in the fight against capitalist exploitation.
