(en) Greece, "Black & Red" APO: Concentration of the Women's Initiative against Patriarchy for the Day Against Gender Violence [machine translation]

Date Tue, 27 Nov 2018 08:14:19 +0200


November 25: The Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women Without Women ---- November 25 was designated by the United Nations as the World Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women in December 1991. This day had been established almost a decade ago by women's organizations wishing to commemorate the three brothers Mirabal , who were political racers from the Dominican Republic who were tortured, beaten and strangled to death on the orders of the dictator Truhillo on 25/11/1960. ---- Today, although state and international organizations have included on their agenda the Global Day Against Gender Violence, violence is still "alive". For us, it is obvious that the introduction of such a day has no real impact, nor does it mean by no means the eradication of violence against women, but it is another attempt of the sovereignty to declassify and assimilate the struggle for female emancipation. Although anniversaries are organized annually to eradicate gender violence, television spots and campaigns by NGOs, contemporary versions of the same treaty seem to be covered. The contradiction lies in the fact that while gender equality is constitutionally and legally defined, institutions in many cases not only do not protect women but act against them, especially if their female identity is combined with another concept as a minority characteristic (class / social position, race). Thus, we see, for example, the perpetuation of seropositive women by the then health minister in 2012, the acquittal of the student's rabies in Xanthi in 2016 and the condemnation of the 22-year-old in Corinth who defended herself against her rapist in 2017. The last " achievement "of the institutional response to violence against women is the acquaintance of all those involved in the trafficking of women in the" village "oven. especially if their feminine identity is combined with another concept as a minority (class / social position, race). Thus, we see, for example, the perpetuation of seropositive women by the then health minister in 2012, the acquittal of the student's rabies in Xanthi in 2016 and the condemnation of the 22-year-old in Corinth who defended herself against her rapist in 2017.

Gender violence is a fact, despite all the "tepid" attempts of the state apparatus. Does the state institution have not yet done so, its strength is not enough? Is not that his purpose? Or is this situation not only fit, but also preserves its existence?

Patriarchy is a foundation stone of capitalism and has been used to consolidate and socialize it. We understand that it is still a form of oppression, which is not separate from the others we accept, but derives from the structure of the dominant state-capitalist system and is the constant reminder that at any moment we can be subjected to oppression based on our feminine nature.

Everyday depictions of gender violence are the underestimation of women in workplaces, redundancies, domestic violence, sexual harassment, dozens of rapes, police violence against combatants in repressive operations, and trafficking. Within a patriarchal structured society, social legitimacy of gendered violence crystallizes either in the acceptance of oppressive-authority behaviors or in mitigating and excusing for such incidents. Thus, street whistling, sexual harassment, physical violence are considered as if not normal, at least not so reprehensible, and in the case of sexual abuse, victims are required to prove that they did not cause them. The recent example of the acquittal of a rapist in Ireland, as the jury decided that evidence of the victim's consent constituted her provocative pantsuit, which was presented in the courtroom, accompanied by the rhetoric of the defense line, "You have to keep in mind what she was wearing. A lace sting ", confirms the most obvious: Patriarchy is deeply rooted in our societies and this neoliberal illusion is being cultivated to achieve gender equality in the public domain through the ability of women to develop into the educational, social scene is being undermined and circumvented through this archetypal narrative about natural inferiority. which was presented in the courthouse, accompanied by the line of defense rhetoric, "You have to keep in mind what he wore. A lace sting ", confirms the most obvious: Patriarchy is deeply rooted in our societies and this neoliberal illusion is being cultivated to achieve gender equality in the public domain through the ability of women to develop into the educational, social scene is being undermined and circumvented through this archetypal narrative about natural inferiority. which was presented in the courthouse, accompanied by the line of defense rhetoric, "You have to keep in mind what he wore. A lace sting ", confirms the most obvious: Patriarchy is deeply rooted in our societies and this neoliberal illusion is being cultivated to achieve gender equality in the public domain through the ability of women to develop into the educational, social scene is being undermined and circumvented through this archetypal narrative about natural inferiority.

And perhaps another extension, more obvious, of patriarchy is the internalization of a role that responds to what is socially acceptable to be a woman. For example, there is the image of a woman who is naturally passive, emotionally moving and always in need of protection from a "strong" man who is afraid to move alone in the evenings and lives with stress do not cause the normalized uncontrolled male sexuality with the only purpose of becoming a good companion-wife, a good mother, as she has learned from little in the dolls and kitchens that even today are the usual girls games. "Tangible" violence, bruising, penetration into rape is not the only violence that is being practiced, and even if we have not experienced such situations, it does not mean that women's oppression is of concern to us.

For us, setting a world day does not mean making any demands. We are organized and collectivized as women against what oppresses us, aiming to diffuse the question of the limits set on the role of women and the ideas of those who oppose patriarchy and gendered oppression in order to make another blow to the world of power and of the divisions it has imposed. The struggle of women for their release from the bonds of patriarchy is an integral part of the struggle to stem the state and capitalist imposition. We unite our voices with all the oppressed and oppressed together to build a world that will accommodate many worlds within it to create a society of equality, solidarity and freedom where there will be no human exploitation by man. The treatment of gendered violence passes through the struggle for female emancipation against the state, capital and all forms of power.
