Women of Diverse Origins and the International Coordinating body invites you to
register now for the Montreal International Women's Conference taking place August
13-16 2010.

Women from around the world will gather under the theme: For a Global Militant
Women's Movement in the 21st Century! They will review the last 100 years of the
women's movement, honour its pioneers and draw up an action plan to advance the
movement, with the forming of an International Women's Alliance.

At a time when wars and violence against women are raging, as inequalities and
social injustice reign and the systemic crisis continues, it is time more than
ever to unite in a movement that brings together women of all races and cultures
with an international perspective, to oppose war and promote human progress and
social justice. The event will take place in Montreal from August 13-16 and will

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
