Migrating Tactics: An Interview with Ewa Majewska and Katarzyna Rakowska
This interview considers Polish feminists’ participation in both the Black Monday protests of October 3, 2016, and the International Women’s Strike held on March 8, 2017. Majewska and Rakowska attest to the long process of organizing and the ongoing histories that these strikes continued. These are histories of workers’ struggle as much as of feminist activism, and both Majewska and Rakowska speak to the inseparability of feminist efforts—including work for reproductive justice—from broader anti-capitalist projects in Poland and beyond. The interviewees thus repeatedly link the women’s strikes to movements opposing austerity, environmental despoliation, precarization, and nationalism.
