Women in most of the countries from Thailand to Poland and from the United States to Australia will be going on strike from paid and unpaid labor on Wednesday, the International Women’s Day.

It is learned millions of women will take part in direct action and if succeeds as per the plan, it will be one of the most political International Women’s Days in history.

The so-called first International Women’s Strike will hit domestic as well as industrial fronts and women will show solidarity with an energized global movement.

Klementyna Suchanow, a Poland-based organizer of the International Women’s Strike said they are united and they have gone international too.

She added further the movement would put pressure on governments and institutions to give women a voice.

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange.

Women’s March, human rights, women’s campaigners and other organizations have joined International Women’s Strike across the world.

The Women’s March group is active in eighty countries and about 200 cities now.

In January about two million people marched across the world for equality in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidency inauguration.

In 1975 about 25,000 women in Iceland gathered on the streets of Reykjavik and most of the female population of the country didn’t go to work and even didn’t do any household work including taking care of children.
