On a daily basis, we women experience inequality and violence. For many of us, this observation was strongly accentuated with confinement. This one, as announced by the government will only worsen this situation because, even if some of us will be able to go back to work, we will have to undergo the injunctions to "makeup for lost time" while still working advantage than usual. And for the others, who will remain confined to the regions most affected by the virus, no measures are on the horizon. ---- Almost two months after the start of confinement, none of the long-awaited emergency measures had been taken to relieve women, particularly the most precarious, the most hampered by their rights and the most affected by the consequences of this confinement. However, these measures had been requested by the women themselves and in particular the field workers. In particular with regard to support for sectors employing mainly women essential to the functioning of society during confinement (health, education, maintenance of premises, sales, etc.). This calls for easier access to abortion and contraception, the guarantee of social and economic rights, access to social services and health, rights for migrant women. In just as much urgency,

Not only have all of the issues that we raise not been addressed, but the women, whom the precarious, violent, destroyed confinement, when it does not kill them, are sent back to hellish rates.

We are endangered by the passivity of the public authorities, even though they are the first concerned.

To be a woman is already to be precarious . But, in times of crisis, this precariousness increases. Precariousness that we also owe to the many austerity measures taken in recent years: labor law, unemployment, retirement, etc.

It is now essential to:
Support the sectors mainly employing women and all the so-called "front line" trades.
Guarantee women's economic autonomy and social rights.
Provide solutions allowing a real reconciliation between family and professional life during confinement. That until the normal resumption of the school and the modes of collective reception of the early childhood for all and all: to allow the mothers of family who wish it to be able to keep the partial unemployment after June 2 and to profit from additional aid.
Guarantee the safety of women victims of domestic violence: eviction from the domicile of the violent spouse, creation of jobs intended to support women victims of violence, etc.
Support single-parent women.
Support all trans people: Domestic violence, isolation, insecurity, problems accessing treatment, postponement of operations, etc.?
Support women's access to health and their sexual and reproductive rights: abortion and contraception, mental and physical health.
Guarantee the rights of migrant women (with or without papers) and their children.
Protect women prostitutes.
