(en) Czech, afed: Feminism znamená solidaritu - Report from the Prague event to mark International Women's Day

Date Sat, 18 Mar 2017 09:08:43 +0200

As part of International Women's Day this year organized a series of anti-capitalist and feminist collectives event called Stop: Den female solidarity . The name refers to an international strike associated with industrial action that the newly awakened women's movement, among others, alarmed by selecting misogynního billionaire Donald Trump to the American presidency, decided to organize. ---- Clearly, concisely, egalitarian ---- Organizers stops, specifically collectives FEM, parents at Charles University, NemrAFky, Transparent Initiative No Racism!, an informal group of women on March 8, as the home fourth wave, the Christian-feminist groups and RFK association Konsent, people convened on Wednesday, March 8 Peace Square in Prague. There is an unusually timely gathered about a hundred people around the booths of individual organizations offering refreshments, a smaller distro and freeshop. Besides feminists arrived several television crews and three plainclothes policemen, as always graceful, striking his nonchalance. Particularly one with a beard enjoyed in becoming a new photographic equipment and shaking the camera lens with a cheerful enthusiasm.

Rally started short listing of the organizing teams and bringing international context stop. The subsequent speech recalled the development of feminist theory and practice in recent decades and some of the current topics of the feminist movement - casualization of work, unequal distribution of housework, sad situation underprivileged seniors, poor awareness of sexualised and domestic violence and the ever present culture of sexism and toxic masculinity, which negatively influences and traumatized and otherwise privileged men. "Because of it, we can not celebrate," said the speaker, why we are in the streets. There was also a warning to the wider context of the feminist struggle - "Feminism means for us solidarity," came from the anti-capitalist perspective.

Theatre Anny Letenské

After the speeches are presented in a few sentences of the organizing groups, which received enthusiastic applause. One of the organizers, an informal group Women on March 8, followed by about a ten-minute break called on those present to attend a performance at the nearby Vinohrady Theatre.

There is present in a good mood and moved once gathered before entering the theater, the speaker highlighted the historical context on women as seamstresses in New York strikes of 1908 and that otherwise they are feminists in history, remembered only minimally. Therefore, women on March 8 decided Vinohrady Theater manifest renamed Theatre Anny Letenské according to a major actress First Republic, which was the theater of his time is crucial. Personality Letna recalled also because of the currently discussed television series La Bohème, which female celebrities of the time Letna by March 8 Women usually portrays as passive and long-suffering victim of the times.

In the historical context, therefore, we should not forget the women who in the past against the historical forces actively and courageously fought - whether in arms or through solidarity and resistance through active compassion.

And what else?

After we had before the newly renamed Theatre Anny Letenské left the picket with a new name and a bouquet, we returned to the square. Some were engrossed in discussions more slowly uttering away. It has been necessary to gather strength before afrerparty evening at the Clinic, where he not only celebrated but also heatedly debated.

Overall, we assess as positive that we as feminists could take International Women's Day back and fill it with new themes and context of the international fight against sexism and patriarchal organization of society. Hopefully, next time will succeed to the streets to mobilize large numbers of people, and it also manages to remember that we feminism and efforts to eliminate oppression based on gender should accentuate all year round and in our daily lives, not only from time to time in the demonstrations.
