The borderless struggle for the liberation of women
We are in a very special time. Millions of people’s future may radically change. These days are wonderful, magnificent and historic. People’s uprising in North Africa and the Middle East has brought a great hope for fundamental change and a better future for millions of people in the region. It can put an end to dictatorships, one after the other. People’s uprising is a consequence is of widespread poverty, total lawlessness, brutal oppression and social injustice in their daily life. Women have faced additional issues such as sex discrimination, inequality and misogynistic laws. There is therefore no wonder that we see women’s massive presence in the ongoing struggles.
In Iran, the women are fighting for their human rights side by side with men against the inhuman regime in Iran. In Egypt, women have been an active part of the revolution against poverty and for freedom. And thousands of women took part in manifestation in the Tunisian capital on 22 February and demanded equal rights – These are few examples of how women are a major revolutionary force in the ongoing development which will affect the other countries.
Solidarity with the egalitarian women movement becomes increasingly important in light of the revolutions that exceeded the national borders. The Islamic regime’s overthrow in Iran will mean a great victory for women’s rights in the country and for the secular movement and women’s liberation in the Middle East. It will thus be a major step toward political Islam and its terrorist actions. Women’s rights organizations around the world should do the same against gender apartheid in Iran as it did against the apartheid regime in South Africa.
This year’s 8th March has an important message: breaking off all diplomatic relations with dictatorships and misogynistic regimes! Condemn the regimes that are targeted by people’s struggle and expel them of the international community!
Long live the 8th of March!
Long live solidarity with women in Iran, North Africa and the Middle East!
Breaking off diplomatic relations with dictatorships and misogynistic regimes!
Down with the misogynistic, Islamic regime in Iran!
