(en) Poland, WORKERS' INITIATIVE: Call for mobilization on the occasion of the International Women's Day [machine translation]

Date Mon, 5 Mar 2018 09:39:54 +0200

International Women's Day - celebrated on March 8 - in its early days commemorated the demonstrations of American workers who in 1908 demanded workers' rights and voting rights, appearing under the slogan of "bread and roses". We want to continue this tradition and therefore we appeal to all members and members of the union and people supporting the Workers' Initiative for participation in initiatives organized in connection with the International Women's Day: Social Women's Congress in Poznan (March 3), 19th Warsaw Manifa (March 4) and International Strike Women (March 8). ---- The fight for women's rights and gender equality is an integral part of the fight for better working conditions, higher wages and worthy income for all: ---- Discrimination and wage inequalities, as a result of which women receive lower wages than men, are means of sharing the working class. State authorities and capitalists use them as a means to reduce the wages of all employees and employees;

Mobbing, sexual harassment and sexual violence are phenomena affecting mainly women, but they are part of a wider system of controlling and keeping employees and employees in fear and obedience and pacifying workers' protests;

Forcing women to give birth by banning abortion and restricting access to contraception is an extreme form of controlling state power over our lives and bodies;

Lack of places in nurseries and kindergartens and high fees for using care facilities are a way of transferring reproductive labor to women (giving birth and raising next generations of workers and employees), which extends their working time by creating a second - unpaid - full time home;

The risk of poverty in the situation of unemployment, motherhood, transition to a pension or retirement is a means of forcing female employees and employees to take up low-paid jobs and reduce the level of remuneration for all employees.

The struggle for women's rights is therefore part of a wider fight for social justice, and as a trade union movement we should and should fight it both in workplaces where we operate and support demonstrations, pickets protests of feminist movements on city streets.
