(en) Germany, Berlin, die plattform: March 8 is just around the corner and preparations are underway around the world for a strong international women's* day! (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

While some claim that the struggle of feminism is no longer necessary and that patriarchy is our imagination, not a day goes by that women*, lesbians, transgender or intersex (FLTI) people are not affected by sexual violence, feminicide, misogynist, trans- or homophobic insults and other forms of oppression. Women* are still often paid less than their male counterparts for the same work (gender pay gap) and have fewer job opportunities for the same qualifications. Many "female" professions, e.g. in care, are paid less and after paid labour women* still do most of the unpaid reproductive work such as raising children, household chores, emotional care and caring for relatives.

Clerical-fascist role models, as they are more than present to us today, through the revolutionary efforts in Iran, started by women*, who said "Stop it!" after more than 40 years of state oppression and started a movement, for which one can only take off one's hat. Our solidarity and support here on the ground is the least we have to contribute.
Not forgotten are also the women* in Afghanistan, who are experiencing a reactionary backflash that could hardly be more inhumane.

In the U.S. we experienced a reactionary ruling that took away women's* right to abortion, a fundamental right of self-determination.
In Germany, too, abortion itself is still punishable (get rid of § 218 StGB!), it is just not punished in practice most of the times. Therefore, there are less and less doctors in Germany who enable pregnant women to have self-determination over their lives in this crucial area!

The struggles in Iran show us that with the beginning of nationwide strike waves the rulers got into trouble. This implies, the means of the strike is also the means to improve the conditions for women* here on the ground and to go beyond them.
As AnarchaFeminists we stand for wanting to overcome patriarchy and its interweavings with capitalism which secure capitalism's domination in its entirety.

No to patriarchy, state and capital!

For a libertarian communism!
