Greve et manifestation des femmes contre l’interdiction de l’avortement
1 October 2018
October 3, 2016 - Warsaw, Poland - Women in Poland held a general strike on October 3 2016. Women across the country did not go to work, school, and took both paid and unpaid leave. In Warsaw, Poland, women staged a picket line under the slogan, ''Wall of Fury'' in front of the Law & Justice party's headquarters. Women wore all black for ''Black Monday'' which has also been trending on various social media outlets as a way to show solidarity with women in Poland and across Europe. The strike was a direct response to the current right wing's government legislative project that aims to outlaw abortion in every case, even in the case of rape or incest. The project also aims to ban or severely limit in-vitro fertilization and seeks to jail women who seek out abortions. Demonstrations have continued in the past weeks in Poland since the contentious abortion project was initially approved by Poland's parliament.
