(en) Greece, Volos, Fuerza femenina: The Iceberg of Gender-Based Violence - The Proposal of the Event by libertarian Feminist Collectivity [machine translation]

Date Thu, 17 Oct 2019 11:59:10 +0300


The screening of this documentary served as the basis and the occasion for the debate on the forms of gender-based violence, as illustrated below, at the homonymous event held on Tuesday, September 24 at the Volos Liberal Club. (Director: Manos Papadakis, Screenplay: Maria Sarantis, Penelope Sedikou, Manos Papadakis) ---- The iceberg of gender-based violence culminates in female homicide and rape but before that there are many stages that are physical abuse, sexist comments and jokes, harassment at work, on the road, at school, in the family, in friends, it is gender underestimation and misogyny, gender stereotypes. It is a generalized culture that excludes anything that escapes patriarchal regularity. Under this exemption are females and queer individuals, as well as non-bunches of males. Patriarchal rules oppress us from family to work, from friends, to relationships to political spaces.

We are now at a time when silence is breaking worldwide. The incidents are every day just like the perpetrators are everyday men. He is the father, neighbor, friend, boss, erotic companion, companion in a political arena, even male "feminists" who, by selling a profile of a credible ally, carry out sexist attacks. There are no more incidents of gender-based violence today than in previous decades. But there are more complaints. In 2007, black feminist Tarana Burke, as a rape survivor herself and her teenage daughter, launches the #metoo campaign in New York City in order to perceive survivors of gender-based violence that they are not alone and to empower one another to break the silence. There have been millions of complaints across the globe since then. Throughout the last decade or so around the world, feminist struggles have grown and multiplied. Voices of rage and indignation about rape, female homicide, abuse, transgenderism and its victims, homophobic attacks, criminalization of abortion. Feminist solidarity, empowering one another, strengthens and is a serious enemy to the cruelty of patriarchy. But we still have a long way to go ... empowering one another, it strengthens and is a serious enemy to the cruelty of patriarchy. But we still have a long way to go ... empowering one another, it strengthens and is a serious enemy to the cruelty of patriarchy. But we still have a long way to go ...

When a woman reports a case of gender-based violence to either her friends, her family, or to some political collective, or to the cops, the treatment she experiences is the same. In civil and non-civil courts, the victim becomes a victim until proven otherwise (usually never) and the victim becomes an apologist for what he or she has lived through. The apologists of gender-based violence normalize and cover up any sexist imposition. They are allies and accomplices in every rape and murder and every other form of gender-based violence. In each case they form a herd of protection around the perpetrators. It has even been observed that male allies who support gender-based violence are experiencing social exclusion, assault, and targeting from their herds of apologists.

We believe that incidents must be made public and dealt with collectively. We highlight the gendered violence that we and others experience daily through our actions. We defend self-defense in whatever way she chooses to treat the abuser a feminine. Either at the moment of the attack, or after, or whenever he finds the strength to do so. We develop relationships of feminist solidarity with one another in relation to misogyny and the culture of rape, in the face of patriarchal brutality. For us, the fight against patriarchy will not be won by legislation, equal pay and equal representation in positions of power. We envision another world liberated from all forms of power. And this world cannot exist only with the abolition of capitalism or the state.

Not alone in the pit of patriarchy.
