"What we talk about when we talk about the 8th of March "
The 8th March is the commemoration of the death of 146 women who burned in a fire that was provoked because they wouldn't leave the location where they were protesting against their low salaries and working conditions. 149 years later, we keep on condemning the fact that we are submitted to worse work conditions and get paid less than men for the same work, harassment at work, pensions that are a pittance, sexist violence, we are invisible in history, we can't decide what we can do with our bodies and the fact that being a woman is the main cause of poverty in the world.
Many women in history have united forces to fight for the conquest and defence of our rights. A long line of activist, suffragist, syndicalist women precede us, but there is much more left to do. Following the bases of the 8M, we will keep fighting for inclusive feminism, intersectional, anti-fascist, anti-racist and anti-capitalist that puts the defence of life in the centre of the economy, politics and culture.
The coeducation is an essential tool to prevent sexist violence, to educate on equality of opportunities and face discriminations that we find in the working world and in the other areas of life. Coeducation develops concrete and continuous actions that are related to care, empathy, expression of emotions and vulnerability. Sisterhood is our weapon, it is the massive action that helps us going forward. The date of the 8th March is ours, international and radical.
