International Women’s Day is a day of struggle! – Proletarian Feminism in the hands of proletarian women!


MFPR Italy

The proletarian women, the workers, the most exploited, discriminated and oppressed will be at the center of the mobilization for the next International Women’s Day! With their strong denunciation of a condition that worsens every day, but especially with their struggles, the various forms of protest and rebellion against all this, that have been seen this year.

An International Women’s Day of proletarian revolutionary feminism.

With a clear link and continuity with the historical meaning of this Day that is rooted in the exploited workers on strike killed by factory owners, and that was born by the international communist movement when, in 1921 with Clara Zetkin, decided to adopt March 8 as the International Day of Women workers, and later it became the day of the entire women’s struggle movement.

Clearly linked to the current battle of women at national and international level, in the imperialist countries, like ours, and in countries oppressed by imperialism; Women are always in the front line, wherever there is struggle, against the employers, the governments, the modern fascist State, imperialism and its rapist men and armies, against the reactionary and genocidal regimes, against “men who hate women”, to put an end to the bourgeois social system, in which the majority of women are doubly exploited and oppressed, crushed in their dignity, raped in their bodies, murdered, a system that does not hesitate to repress with double ferocity, with sexist hate and violence, those women who rebel and fight with weapons.

A Women’s Day against the bourgeois feminists who want a miserable power and petty improvements for themselves, while the majority of women live more and more a situation of “modern Middle Ages”.

The proletarian women must take in their hands the struggle for their fate and true liberation, and be a point of reference for all the oppressed women, taking up all their needs and dreams.

In this battle, the women’s strike is a practical weapon, to translate in fact today the role of the proletarian, workers, unemployed, immigrant women, to unite their single struggles and to impose and make their general point of view hegemonic: the double oppression of women, the intertwining of class and gender oppression.

Women need to organize themselves and struggle also in  separation from the general movement of struggle, to gain strength and courage, to break the practical and ideological obstacles, the many forms of oppression both external and in the family, the double chains, to unleash the rebellion of women as a powerful force of the revolution of proletarians and peoples all over the world.

Those who deny this, even when they speak about “revolution”, want to stop the disruptive, transforming, practical, theoretical and ideological wind that the “revolution within the revolution” of women, the majority of the masses, brings to the overall battle.

For this, the women’s strike is an important step.

We held the first successful women’s strike on November 25, 2013. in these two years we have been pursuing the organization and mobilization of women, initiatives towards the factories and workplaces of women, from Palermo to Taranto, in Milan, in Melfi etc. up to the novelty of our March of last December 11 and 12. In these two years the struggles, the protests of workers, agricultural laborers, immigrant women, temporary workers were heard and seen more and more.

The next March 8 we call a second women’s strike, and we begin a march that will unite and reach bit by bit all the organizations of the women workers.

Proletarian women this March 8 raise their battle and their challenge, unite with the women fighters, in India, Palestine, Kurdistan, Turkey, etc., and with the women forced to flee from wars and genocidal regimes.

Finally, we say clearly: We are against those who want to cancel the Women’s Day.

The bourgeois, the government want to cancel this Day, because the rightly fear that behind the “mimosa” the specter of the revolutionary struggle of women appears; but also those, often petty bourgeois feminists, who deride this historic Day for women and thus contribute to remove its proletarian, red and revolutionary character.

We, on the contrary will rise up this International Women’s Day!
