(en) Czech, afed.cz: A3 - Women wearing - The fact that they celebrate International Women's Day, still does not mean that women have won. Download, print and circulate the March issue of wall newspapers A3! [machine translation]

On the eighth of March, we commemorated International Women's Day. For many, this holiday does not mean anything, somebody marginally registers. Some men are in this day and attentive to women, few women are pleased with such behavior. But the reality for the majority of women were as commonplace and often frustrating. ---- Even in this day had to walk past countless ads vyšpulenými charms modified computer models, which are (usually) men determine, indeed, dictates the requirement for the ideal female appearance and age. They were indirectly confronted with the fact that they are either a little skinny, unattractive or too old or too poor to be as advertising. ---- Even in this day averaged pensioners calculated income less than equally old retired, regardless that toiled lifetime equally, or even more. Even in this day, women had less opportunity to get to higher job positions than men on average had just finished work at about 22 percent lower wages. Even in this day had few women toiling at disadvantaged positions reduced to part-time or fixed-term or temporary jobs because they pay in main employment is insufficient.

Even in this day, one-third of single mothers moving to the poverty line, while half debtor failed to pay him. Even in this day, 38 percent of women entails older or recent experience with domestic violence. And even in this day and boarded shortsighted third of the population of the Czech Republic believe that rape is the responsibility alone raped woman.

Even to this day wide scale exercise (often in appalling working conditions) the worst and worst paid jobs, underpinning the global economy on women. Even in this day most of the women had also pay unpaid housework, caring for children and parents.

In many places, but this year's International Women's Day came and extraordinary forms, and in cases when women decided to speak up, there is no reason to celebrate as it belonged in the case of important and lasting victory. Conversely raised his voice to emphasize that in the case of women's rights is still to fight for. The most striking campaigns this day was "Global Women's Strike", the driving force was the growing movement for women's rights in the United States. He even managed a day after the inauguration of Donald Trump get into the streets of American cities several million protesters. Now the new American president has become a symbol obtuse chauvinism, which sees women primarily objects of his obscenity.

Even in this day, people in many places, including Prague, reminded the roots of this day, which are associated with the year 1908 when the mass demonstrations held in New York seamstresses for better working conditions and the right to vote.

Even in this day women protested in Poland against obscurantism bigoted local governments the right-wing Law and Justice party, which is taking steps for an absolute ban on abortion, sex education and cancels impedes access to contraception (while Viagra allows to get without a prescription). Even in this day they held protests against the ban on abortion in Ireland.

And on this day it was gratifying to see that the protesting women suffer from biases and their struggle to be associated with other matches. It was therefore except to hear speeches advocating against social injustice that is inherent in capitalism. It was not uncommon to hear expressions of solidarity with a much more exploited women from different parts of the so-called. Third World. It was not uncommon to hear challenges to a unified procedure for the rights of women, ethnic, sexual and religious minorities, as well as for the protection of nature and climate, and against neoliberal deformation of health and education, which makes it impossible to access the socially weak.

We, the anarchists and anarchists consider the struggle for women's rights as an integral part of our emancipation efforts and our struggle for freedom, equality and autonomy. And that "on this day" as any other.
