Prague ---- On Sunday, March 8, a demonstration was held to celebrate International Women's Day in Prague under the auspices of International Feminists United. Around two o'clock in the afternoon it began to fill the crowds of sympathizers and sympathizers with feminist movement. The staff was really diverse and under the supervision of uniformed and uniformed police officers began at about quarter to three speeches. The first was the AltPride initiative. After establishing the sad situation of feminism in the Czech Republic, it recalled the historical roots of the feminist movement. Socialist solidarity was the next one, and in his speech he summed up the March 8 demonstration over the past three years highlighting contemporary social dramas. In the Libraries Initiative, participants were informed about the salary situation of not only librarians (78% of the library staff in the Czech Republic are women), but also all other feminized professions. In a speech by International Feminists United Prague, all women fighting for their rights were first reminded. This was followed by a call to resist a system that denies women's rights, demands unpaid care or prevents them from participating in public life. This was followed by criticism of the current government's budget cuts in the area of gender policy, which resulted in a reduction in support for, for example, women's refuges, the need for ratification of the Istanbul Convention and the criticism of capitalism. After hearing a part of the speech in the Czech language, about three hundred demonstrators with banners such as "Carnation End of Patriarchate", "Our Body, Our Choice" or "I do not want a flower but equal opportunities" headed down the streets of Prague towards Klárov. The planned route of the parade went along the waterfront, around the National Theater to Jan Palach Square, then across the Manes Bridge to Klárov. Here, after a minor push with the order keepers of the English part of the speech. Followed by speeches from the team Beat Sexism or Left and Asamblea. Then the participants started to divide slowly and the march ended after 5 pm.


The commemoration of International Women's Day in Brno was in the café style. There was no public event in the streets. On March 7th, the people at the Three Tails cafeteria could meet to remind "all politically active women fighting for their rights, for better working conditions and for equality in society" and where they had a very varied program. Unfortunately, the female folk band Cácory, who was the main draw, did not perform. The tails thus hosted a debate, an author's reading, an exhibition, a screening or a mini table football tournament. The day before, she organized a feminist event NESEHNUTÍ in Brno's Music Lab, offering spoken word and swing music. Bajkazyl Brno joined on Sunday to discuss workshops on "MDŽ: Old school? True school! "And" How does a nonprofit today promote equal rights? ".


The International Women's Day took place in Liberec's Asylum Club on the first Saturday in March. The organization was seized by a local female team who conceived it in an unusual figure skating style. Participants began to arrive in Asylum in the early afternoon, many of them in figure skating costumes. And it should be added that they were not really afraid to "let loose the imagination", as the organizers wanted in the invitation.

In addition to figure skating styling, the event was accompanied by one actual topic - the feminization of poverty. As the organizers said in their statement: "The reality is discrimination in the labor market based on deep-rooted stereotypes, such as the division of occupations into male and female or the role of women in reproduction... Women are an absurdly marginalized social group . "The banner posted in front of the club, which also invited to Saturday's party, made a clear statement about this unsatisfactory situation:" IWD - Stop the feminization of poverty! "

The organizers also prepared a practical activity - a linorite workshop, where everyone could make thematic prints on their clothes. An entertaining revival of the event was an experimental poetic performance of a male-female artistic duo. There was also great interest in the evening feminist quiz of mixed teams, conceived as an educational but entertaining form. Each team has won a prize in the form of a stylish "menstrual" DIY pendant, the winners of the award-winning beer for the IWM flying brewer Kosa Prairie called FEMINISTOUT and the book Fruit of Knowledge by the Swedish author of irritating comics Liv Strömquist. menstrual myths ".

The quiz was followed by the necessary party because, as the organizers said: "IWD is a celebration of the fight for equality, we will have fun and break down stereotypes!" In addition to the traditional party decoration TABU, "" I have overflowed patience, "or" Menstrual activism is important for all! NOT JUST menstruators! "So it was an action" for all who are not afraid of hitting stereotypes! ", But especially for women whose voice is not heard enough today -" the voice of social workers, nurses, shop assistants, workers, bartenders, teachers, postmen and others in the interests of a just society ".
