Historical Note: Women Against Imperialism was a grassroots, feminist, anti-imperialist solidarity organization formed in San Francisco in 1981. The group’s founders comprised the women’s caucus of the Bay Area chapter of the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee. A small, local organization whose members also worked with a range of other anti-prison, feminist, international solidarity, LGBT, and anti-war organizations, Women Against Imperialism’s work primarily consisted of direct action organizing, political education activities, and internal political study. Primary areas of focus included support for women political prisoners; sex trade and trafficking; international solidarity (Central America; Palestine; Philippines; Puerto Rico; South Africa); militarism; and reproductive justice. One of the group’s most consistent projects was co-organizing an annual International Women’s Day march in San Francisco (1983-1996).
