(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL - New government appointments: another affront to women (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 14 Jul 2020 08:40:00 +0300

Although we expected nothing from the government, it managed to "surprise" us by choosing Darmanin accused of rape and opposing marriage for all, and a Dupont-Moretti, protector of rapists and openly misogynist. If these appointments arouse our anger, they are a continuation of the State's permanent contempt for women. ---- A patriarchal and racist state at the service of capital ---- The policy of this government, as of those which preceded it, contributes directly to the fact that women remain the first victims of the capitalist and patriarchal system. Associations combating violence against women remain underfunded, access to care remains uneven, and this, in particular due to the destruction of the public health system, amplified in particular by the disappearance of maternity hospitals and clinics practicing Abortion. Destruction organized by the new Prime Minister as well as the new Minister of Culture, Roselyne Bachelot: they were the craftsmen of the demolition of the hospital and the deterioration of the working conditions of the hundreds of thousands of workers who do it turn. Inequalities have also been reinforced by the breakdown of education,

Rapist, sexist and LGBTIphobic ministers

Today is one more bastard. Next to Darmanin, accused of rape and abuse of weakness by two women, we find Dupond-Moretti, a very media-oriented criminal lawyer who has built a juicy career in defense of famous defendants such as Balkany, Cahuzac, Tapie, Merah but also Georges Tron. During the Georges Tron rape trial, the lawyer attacked the European Association against violence against women in the workplace (AVFT), then a civil party alongside the complainants, as well as the latter. About one of them, he will say: "At 30, you are not a juggler unable to say no to a man who takes your foot. Dupond-Moretti regretted, during the MeToo wave, a "hyper-regulation" of society and accuses certain feminist movements of "manipulating women". As for Barbara Pompili, minister of ecological transition, she financially supported masculinist associations like SOS Papa in Picardy and testified in favor of Baupin. To top it off, the Minister for Equality believes in the complementarity of men and women and in the need for coffee machine jokes ...

Women in ministries: one more deception
The government puts forward its joint composition, as if the appointment of a few women changed anything: long-time elected officials or owners of small and large companies, they will conduct exactly the same policy as men ! We will not be fooled by the few appointments of women, nor by the increase in the number of women members in the last election. A joint government ? More women in the CA of CAC40 companies ? How would it be a victory ? The workers do not care whether it is the bourgeois or the bourgeois who exploit them.

Let's unite our anger: let's organize !
The new government validates what we already know: the puppets of capitalism, patriarchy and the racist system will not give women any gifts. The bourgeois, bosses or politicians always escape justice. Faced with them, it is urgent to organize to defend our interests, in our organizations, unions and collectives. Wherever it takes, as long as it takes, we must unite to break the patriarchal mechanics.
