(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - feminism, August 1st March fight for equality women / men at work and in life (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Wed, 24 Feb 2016 14:19:02 +0200
March 8 is the international day of struggle for women's rights worldwide. Women's
struggles helped conquer rights and progress towards equality between women and men. March
8: Fight, Let's strike, Protest, beauteous us, we draw all festive and symbolic actions!
---- The March 8, which celebrates the history of these struggles, is more than a symbol.
It is the international day of struggle for women's rights worldwide. This is not the day
of "the" woman, as the media delight in repeating. We refuse the recovery of this day for
commercial purposes, with advertisements offering of "celebrate" with a gift or
distribution of flowers at the place of work ... probably best to forget the rest of the
year, the extent of inequalities that remain to fight.

In society women are all equal but nowhere!
Women are affected by wage and pension inequality, the part-time work, job insecurity,
they are mostly in charge of domestic and family tasks, the minority in positions of
political and economic responsibility. They are too often victims of multiple forms of
violence: rape, domestic violence, gender-based and sexual violence at work, lesbophobia,
prostitution, racist attacks, violence against refugee women. Women are the first victims
Today more than ever we need to come together, converging our struggles for equality and
against all forms of violence. The austerity policies, the rise of the extreme right and
the return of religious extremism needed more than ever regressions for women:
The law Rebsamen (dilution status reports and comparative negotiations professional
equality), the Macron law (Sunday work and night), even more precarious the situation of
women The drastic reduction in public spending endangers public services and particularly
affects women: threat on child care, on access to the right to abortion (150 abortion
centers closed in 10 years), access to care (including the remoteness of maternity
The reduction or even the end of government subsidies threatens the very existence of
women's associations that work every day for women The extremist movements have managed to
bury the ABC of equality in school and threaten the right to abortion. They refuse the
LDCs for all women.
TO ACT! Make all the struggles of women visible!
As hairdressers and manicurists of the Boulevard de Strasbourg, as the maids of the big
hotels, like Greek maids, like the women of Latelec in Tunisia, like all anonymous who say
all STOP days to all forms of violence, as all those who work every day for the right of
women, doing the voices of women!
Let us fight for equal pay, against imposed part-time and precarious.
Impose the sharing of domestic tasks. Women are not genetically programmed to do this
work. Enough of the double day!
To reverse the patriarchal system and achieve equality, both at work, in the family and in
society as a whole, 8 March should not be a day-night. More than ever, it must be part of
a dynamic of mobilization, women's struggles and claims, here and around the world,
