Detroit

The SPARK presents "Every Woman Faces It!"

Date: 
Sun, Apr 22, 2018 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

City:

Every woman has faced sexual harassment -- on the job, in the market, in the streets. Every woman knows of a boss who offers you a better job -- a bargain for sexual favors. And women know it's a vicious bargain. Today, some women have begun to speak out. But there are many more -- working class women -- who would lose their jobs if they did. The fight for their rights goes through the fight of the whole working class against a society run by all kinds of predators.
