Implicit in Women Against Imperialism’s (WAI) mission was to build support and solidarity for women freedom fighters and human rights defenders throughout the world. The 1970s was a period of national liberation and decolonization and women played an essential role in all of these movements. WAI built solidarity through events, protests, campaigns and political education. This series was one example. These films listed on the poster are still available today and still speak to the colonial structure that remains in place in much of the world.
