Anarcho-syndicalist feminism (that is, of proletarians who must work or seek money to support the family, if they have one, or for
-mal-living) strongly opposes the feminism of the loose classes, with Christian, Jewish, Muslim values, etc. ---- It is the class and
libertarian vision of the oppressed who do not admit revolution if all women are not released. Therefore, very strongly, inflexiblely, they
condemned the persistence of prostitution in revolutionary Spain from 1936-1939, however self-managed it was. It is necessary to emphasize
to those who failed in this plane the emancipatory ideals of men and pro-men (and some women) of anarcho-syndicalism. ---- Prostitution
Liberators ---- The most urgent company to carry out in the new social structure is to suppress prostitution. Before dealing with the
economy or education, from now on, in the midst of an anti-fascist struggle, we still have to radically end this social degradation. We
cannot think of production, of work, of any kind of justice, as long as the greatest slavery remains: the one that incapacitates all living
That the decency of any woman is not recognized as long as we cannot attribute all of them. There is no lady of such, sister of such,
companion of such, while there is a prostitute. Because the one that sustains those titles of honesty, the one that makes that decency
possible, is precisely the prostitute, destined to replace the respectful vacation granted to the chaste courtship, to the healthy
lactation, to the careful gestation of the "decent" woman; the clandestine sexual babble of teenagers from Christian families; the "gray
hair" in the air of the honest parents.
This must be done quickly. And it must be Spain that gives the world the norm. All Spanish women will have to get right now to this
liberating company. No more farce of leagues and speeches "against trafficking in white." No more gloomy convents of repentants. No more
passive commiserations of distant women. It is not their problem, but ours, of all women and all men. As long as he exists, sincerity cannot
be reached in love, in affection, in friendship, in camaraderie.
It is necessary to do immediately what women's associations never did that have tried to emancipate women by organizing some pleasant
lectures, some recitals by elegant poets and poets and preparing some typists.
In several locations we have visited recently we have been told, as a large measure, that they had "suppressed" prostitution. When asking
how and what had been done with the women who practiced it, we have been answered: "Ah, that there they!". Thus, suppressing prostitution is
very simple: it comes down to leaving some women on the street, without any means of living.
Free Women is organizing prostitution liberators , which will begin to function shortly. To this end, suitable premises are allocated in
different provinces, and the following plan will be developed in them:
1st Research and medical-psychiatric treatment.
2nd Psychological and ethical healing to encourage students a sense of responsibility.
3rd Guidance and professional training.
4th Moral and material assistance at any time that is necessary, even after becoming independent from the liberators.
In these days, posters will appear on the streets with precise indications of information and registration in these liberators.
We hope that all workers' organizations, women's associations, political parties and all women and conscious men collaborate in this work ,
in which Mujeres Libres puts all its emancipatory and constructive enthusiasm.
"Free Women", 65 days of the Revolution
that is from July 19, September 22, 1936
