SYKP: Women should fill the streets and reclaim their rights
"We do not bow to pressure, and we will continue to challenge patriarchy and capitalism.”
Socialist Refoundation Party (SYKP) Women's Council in Europe has issued a statement to mark 8 March International Women's Day statement.
The statement said: “We will fill the streets of the world on 8 March to reclaim our right to life, to freedom, to labor!"
The statement continued: "We do not bow to pressure, and we will continue to challenge patriarchy and capitalism.”
‘The rights we have achieved are under attack’
The statement also noted that “women are employed at very low wages. There is an attempt to eliminate women, who make up half of the population, by closing them behind the house’s door and confining them to housework.”
The statement underlined that; “Millions of women and children are forced to migrate in the Middle East due to the war. Immigrant women are harassed and raped, sold at a price established according to their age and virginity, sold by jihadist mercenaries to be “put on the right path”, filling the harems of the father and slaughtered at the slightest sign of rebellion.”
Call to fill the squares
SYKP Women's Council in Europe, underlined how despite all the attacks suffered in the Middle East and all over the world, women are resisting and called on “all women to shout our demands out loud, to take the struggle to reclaim our rights to the streets and squares.”
