Description
This program presents raw audio of a rally held to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD) in Yellow Springs, Ohio on March 8, 1973. This rally was part of an annual worldwide celebration to recognize the achievements of women and to call for the end of sexism in the work force. During the rally, women sang feminist songs and gave impassioned speeches against labor injustices, welfare regulations, and sexism. Several workers from the Farah Manufacturing Company in Texas urged the audience to boycott the clothing company, speaking about the right to unionize and sweatshop conditions. During 1972, the company refused to meet the workers demands or allow representation by the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America Union, resulting a nationwide boycott against the company. A member from the Yellow Springs Women's Center also speaks about the services of the local center and encourages audience members to become involved in the women's movement. A conclusion speech protests American capitalism, the Vietnam war, and sexism against women in the labor force.
