International Women's Day takes place on Friday, March 8, 2024. Like every year, UGent Feminist Strike (until last year known as UGent Women's Strike) is organizing an action at our university that day, with the support of ACOD UGent.

In addition, a demonstration for women's rights will also be held that evening.

Below you will find the details of both of these promotions.

We warmly call on all Ghent University staff to come and support these actions with us!
