This article approaches the March 8 women’s strike as a kaleidoscope displaying the complexity of the rupture among different “feminisms.” Within this complex rupture, the figure of the strike, understood as an action, question, and process, was essential, as it turned into a space for a multiplicity of struggles and acts of meaning-making. In this space, the call for an international women’s strike effectuated a series of moves: rupture with respect to institutionalized feminism, connectivity in regard to latent movements of recent decades, and a revitalization of a history of subterranean forms of radical feminisms.
