(en) France, Alternative Libertaire - Tract AL: After the liberation of speech all on the street so that fear changes camp (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 24 Nov 2017 09:07:29 +0200

In recent weeks, a certain release of speech has occurred on sexist and sexual violence. Social networks have allowed many women to tell about the harassment and abuse they have suffered. A necessary first step so that the fear that prevents us from fighting becomes the fear that will push back our aggressors. At present, it is in the street that we must be present ! ---- Violence that keeps the exploitation ---- In 2014, in France, 134 women died under the blows of their spouses. 223,000 women between the ages of 18 and 75 suffer from physical and sexual violence each year and 84,000 are victims of sexual violence or attempted sexual violence each year. 1 % of them say they have lodged a complaint. Nevertheless, in 2014, only 765 men were sentenced. All women who use public transport have already been harassed. These figures, which we tirelessly repeat, are a reflection of the many testimonies reaching the greatest number via the #MeToo and #BalanceTonPorc movements.

Violence against women is the cement of this system that favors men at the expense of women. This allows us to be too afraid to revolt. And yet, we are exploited everywhere ! At work, and especially since our wages are lower than those of men, at home, where we do housework and where we take care of children.

But this fear, omnipresent, violent, keeps us far too often in silence. We live it at work, at home, in the street. There is no escape.

Let's take power together on the street !

Fighting against violence against women means allowing us to fight for our other rights. For our economic rights, but also so that we can dispose of our bodies as we see it: access to contraception and IVG free, free and accessible ! The strength of our claims will only be fully expressed when we no longer feel so alone and in danger.

This violence will not disappear with words. These are essential, to show that we are no longer ashamed, to show what it is, to be a woman in our society, to tell other women: you are not alone, and is not your fault. But then it must be possible to build a real collective movement. We have to take the street, all together. This is how we will feel stronger, that we will realize that we are not isolated.

To men of good will, we also want to say: support us ! Do not let the attackers reach us.

On November 25, we protest against violence against women. Make camp fear change: this is the first step in women's liberation.
