(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - AL Tract, Against violence against women by men, fear will change sides ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 27 Nov 2018 08:12:51 +0200

On the occasion of the international day against violence against women, associations, unions, various movements including in particular " We all " call for a large gathering to fight against sexual and sexual violence. After some liberation of the word of women, it is in the street that we must show our determination ! Men's violence against women takes many forms. Whether physical, sexual or psychological, all are to fight ! ---- AGGRESSORS AND THEIR STRATEGIES ---- Tired of being hit ! In 2016, 3 out of 4 women victims report being beaten repeatedly. In the same year, 123 women were killed by their partner or ex-intimate partner. Tired of being sexually assaulted ! Every day, 243 women are victims of rape or attempted rape. Tired of being insulted ! 3/4 of the authors of insults against women in the public space are men. Insults often refer to gender stereotypes, " slut ", " bitch ", " bitch ", " old ".

Violence against women is everywhere: in the street, in transport, at school, at work but especially in the private sphere. Those made by masked men in a dark alley are minimal. In 91 % of cases, the violence is committed by persons known to the victim (father, brother, friend, doctor, comrade, activist, colleague). In 45 % of the cases, the aggressor is the spouse or former spouse. The private is political, let us never let our guard down. Violence of men against women is part of the patriarchal system. Do not let him lock us in fear and prevent us from revolting. With the flood of stories, fear is changing sides.

Patriarchy affects all women, especially racialized, LGBTI community-based, disabled, grassroots women who experience simultaneous oppression affecting their lives. As a result, they are more likely to experience violence.

No judicial solution is suitable. Justice not only does not do its job but perpetuates the culture of rape and therefore violence against women. Refusal to take the complaints of the victims in the police stations, speeches guilt, questioning of the word of the women, relaxes of the aggressors. It is still the assaulted women to prove their non-consent and not the aggressors to provide proof of the consent of the assaulted. Neither supported, nor listened to, nor reassured by justice, few women victims complain.

On Saturday, November 24, our anger and our feminine solidarity will turn into a great collective movement ! We are not alone ! Bosses, colleagues, spouses, fear will change sides ! As in Spain where 6 million women took part in the strikes and feminist demonstrations of March 8th, let's create a balance of power so that it moves.

After November 24, go to March 8, 2019 for the International Day of the fight for women's rights ! We women demand economic, social and political equality with men ! Women workers earn about 23.7% less than men. They are more affected by precariousness. We, women, want to be free ! Free to walk anywhere, at any time of the day, in any state, in any outfit. Free from our sexual and emotional orientation. Free to procreate or not and with whom we want. Free access to free contraception and abortion and gynecological consultations without abuse.
