World map of feminists [EN]

This network was initiated from two points of consideration. On the one hand, feminist activism is growing in every country around the world, however on the other hand, it has been difficult to translate national and regional successes into positive outcomes for women’s rights at the international level. In light of this reality, our aim is to create a tool that increases the networking, visibility and voice of feminists around the world (our founding text is available here).

As a first step, we have created a Google Map to show where feminist activists and organizations are located around the world.

If you would like to appear on the map (with your name or pseudonym), simply fill out this form.

To truly bring this network to life, we must reach out to as many feminists as possible. To date, over 1000 activists and organizations from 70 countries have signed on to participate in the network.

We need you to:


Carte du monde des féministes [FR]

Notre projet de réseau féministe international est né d’un double constat. D’un côté, l’activisme féministe prend de l’ampleur dans tous les pays du monde et de l’autre, nous avons du mal à transformer ces dynamiques nationales ou régionales pour créer un rapport de force favorable aux droits des femmes sur la scène internationale. Notre projet est donc de créer un outil qui permette de mettre en réseau, de rendre visible et de faire entendre les féministes du monde (notre texte de lancement est disponible ici).

Première étape, nous proposons de créer une carte (de type Google) sur laquelle nous puissions faire apparaître les féministes ou mouvements féministes partout dans le monde.

Si vous souhaitez apparaître sur la carte (avec ton nom ou pseudo), le formulaire est ici.

Pour que ce réseau international soit utile, il faut qu’il soit porté par un maximum de féministes. A l’heure actuelle, plus de 1000 activistes de 70 pays ont accepté de participer au projet.

Nous avons également besoin de vous :


Mapa del mundo de las feministas [ES]

Este proyecto nació a partir de dos observaciones. Por un lado, el activismo feminista está creciendo en todos los países del mundo y con los demás, nos resulta difícil de transformar estas dinámicas nacionales y regionales para crear una relación de fuerzas favorable a los derechos de las mujeres en el internacionalmente. Nuestro proyecto es crear una herramienta que permite a la red, para hacer visible y hacer que el mundo escuche las feministas (texto fundador)

El primer paso, queremos crear un mapa (como Google) en el que podemos mostrar el movimiento feminista y de mujeres en todo el mundo.

Si deseas que aparezca en el mapa (con su nombre o apodo), sólo tiene que rellenar el formulario aquí

Entonces, a esta red internacional es útil, debe ser apoyado por un máximo de feministas. En la actualidad, cerca de 1000 activistas de 70 países se comprometieron a participar en el proyecto.


Die Weltkarte der Feministinnen [DE]

Das Projekt „Internationales Feministisches Netzwerk“ ist aus zwei Überlegungen heraus geboren: einerseits breitet sich feministischer Aktivismus in allen Ländern dieser Erde aus, doch andererseits gelingt es nicht, nationale und regionale Erfolge in positive Kräfte für Frauenrechte auf internationaler Ebene zu übersetzen. Daher haben wir uns das Ziel gesetzt, eine Plattform zu schaffen, die dem Netzwerken dient, unsere Bewegung sichtbar zu machen und ihre eine Stimme zu geben. (Den Gründungstext findest du hier)

Als einen ersten Schritt haben wir eine Google Map erstellt, auf der Feminist*innen und feministische Bewegungen und Organisationen aus der ganzen Welt erscheinen.

Wenn du gerne auf der Karte aufgeführt werden möchtest, fülle einfach das Formular aus.

Damit das Netzwerk wirklich lebendig wird, müssen wir so viele Mitstreiter*innen erreichen wie möglich. Bis jetzt beteiligen sich bereits mehr als 1.000 aus 70 Ländern am Projekt.

Wir brauchen auch dich:

-Erzähle allen vom Internationalen Feministischen Netzwerk und verbreite die Weltkarte über Facebook und Twitter oder teile diesen Link!

-Folge uns auf Twitter und unterstütze uns auf Facebook!

Women for Women’s Human Rights (WWHR) – Press Statement on Gezi Park Resistance

We Demand a Truly Democratic Government Respectful of a Participatory System based on Freedom and Peace!

We will Continue to Resist the Authoritarian and Sexist Policies of the Turkish Government!

As one of the 79 members of Taksim Solidarity Platform on Gezi Park, Women for Women’s Human Rights (WWHR)-New Ways continues to insist on the following demands of the Platform:

* Gezi Park must remain a Park.

* All those who were detained across Turkey during the protests for exercising one of their most fundamental democratic rights—the right to assemble and demonstrate—must be released immediately and not be subject to prosecution.

* All police and officials, who used or ordered the use of violence on protesters that resulted in two deaths, grave injuries such as head trauma and sight loss of almost 50 people, and wounded over 4,500 must be investigated, prosecuted and those responsible should be removed from duty,

* The use of gas bombs and related materials must be banned.

* All public squares throughout Turkey should be opened to peaceful demonstrations.

These demands were jointly formulated by a very large and pluralistic community. While PM Erdoğan persistently fails to see this fact, his authoritarian and alienating statements with zero respect for democracy have resulted in police brutality, leading millions of citizens across the country to rush to public squares to defend their most fundamental human rights and dignity. Youth, environmentalists, women’s activists, health workers, teachers, lawyers, academics, unionized and non-union workers, Non Governmental Organizations, citizens, the faithful and non-believers, LGBTIQ individuals, artists, athletes, animal lovers, homemakers, soccer fans, professional organizations – women and men from all segments of the society have united at peaceful street demonstrations nationwide. All these groups and individuals came together to safeguard fundamental human rights and freedoms and have succeeded in bringing issues such as equality, democracy, pluralism and diversity to top of the agenda in Turkey, for which rights-based organizations have been advocating for decades.

Women are on the frontlines of the resistance
In terms of democracy, equality and freedoms, this resistance is especially meaningful and important to us as women. According to data compiled by the Istanbul Feminist Collective, at least three women are murdered daily in Turkey by a male member of their family or an ex-partner, although a large number of them have filed for protection orders against the perpetrators. While these murders are ongoing, PM Erdoğan continually makes public statements that he “does not believe in gender equality.” In addition, the government is becoming increasingly vocal in its discourses and policy initiatives that infringe on women’s sexual and reproductive rights. Especially in the last five years as women’s rights organizations, our struggle has transformed from efforts to advance our rights to preserving our existing, hard-earned rights.

The “State Ministry Responsible for Women’s Affairs” was abolished and turned into “Ministry of Family and Social Policies” in 2012, as governmental policies have been geared towards confining women to the roles of “wife and mother” rather than “empowering them as equal individuals.” PM Erdoğan has been publicly urging women to have three (or even five) children, and has attempted to ban abortion, which has been legal up to ten weeks in Turkey since 1983. Although we, as the women’s movement, have succeeded in halting the attempt of the PM to ban abortion also thanks to international support we have mobilized, it has become very difficult women to exercise their right to abortion in practice. Presently, abortion services are not provided to women in many public hospitals throughout Turkey. Women who visit public healthcare clinics for pregnancy tests or abortions are being codified, and in some cases, their parents or spouses are being informed without prior consent. The state services to provide information and counseling on contraceptive methods have become very restricted.

Turkey ranks the lowest among all OECD countries in terms of women’s employment, and while the government has pledged to improve Turkey’s status in this respect, at the same time it continues to develop and implement contradictory policies to this promise, such as policies that encourage women to “work part-time” or work as are home-based workers, which are clearly discriminatory against women.

PM Erdoğan also continues its attacks on women’s rights based on “morality” norms, in relation to how “girls” or women have to behave in public. The sexist discourses and actions of the PM and his government that seek to impede women’s basic women’s rights and freedoms, are simply an organic extension of the authoritarian social engineering they displayed against the Gezi Park protesters. Thus, today, women from all walks of life have risen against these discourses and policies, and taken a place on the frontlines of this resistance to defend their rights.

We Demand a Truly Democratic Government Respectful of a Participatory System based on Freedom and Peace!

We will Continue to Resist the Authoritarian and Sexist Policies of the Turkish Government!

We urge the Prime Minister and the government to hear our voice, and urgently establish a respectful and constructive dialogue process to take the necessary steps and meet our democratic and legitimate demands!

Feminist Resistance in Taksim Gezi Park

A message from ESITIZ – Equality Watch Women’s Group

The peaceful protest which began on May 27, 2013 against the cutting of trees in İstanbul’s Taksim Gezi Park to replace them with Topçu Kışlası (Military Barracks demolished in 1940) and a shopping mall was met with police intervention as they threw gas bombs at the sleeping protestors in their tents, burned down the tents and the musical instruments of the activists. Thousands of Istanbulites of every political persuasion, age, gender and sexual orientation reacted immediately to this vicious police intervention.


The Gezi Park Resistance became a social movement because of:
· The vicious police attacks and intense use of gas and violence against the civilians who came to Taksim to support the Gezi Park Resistance on May 31;
· The censorship of mainstream media blacking out the events, and their disinformation efforts; and,
· The government’s use of provocative, humiliating, polarizing, threatening discourses against the people instead of retracting.
* Anti-government protests against the Prime Minister and the government are still ongoing in all the cities, neighborhoods and public spaces of Turkey with public demonstrations and boycotts at universities and high schools,
* The official toll of the vicious police attacks during these protests is 2 dead and hundreds wounded, 20 of them in a critical state,
* Thousands of protesters and nearly 30 twitter users have been taken into custody. They want to try them as “terrorists” despite the fact that they were using their constitutional right of expression, meeting and demonstration and participated in peaceful demonstrations,
* A national general strike began on 5th June and anti government demonstrations are continuing.


The current events taking place are a result of the antidemocratic and oppressive policies that have been practiced in Turkey for years.
The actions below culminated in millions of people in Turkey reacting to an unspecified martial law:
· The brutal attacks against the freedom of expression, organizing and peaceful protests, as was observed a month ago at the 1st Maydemonstrations in Taksim and gas attacks for all subsequent protests in Taksim,
· The cities and public spaces being pillaged by being turned into unearned income opportunities for politicians,
· All anti-environment and anti-culture policies such as plans to construct a canal between the Bosphorus and the Black Sea, planned Hydroelectric Power Plants (HES), the construction of the 3rd Bosphorus Bridge, the demolition of historic Emek Movie Theatre, the pillaging of Ataturk Forest Farm and Belgrade Forest, mining activities on Kaz Mountains and elsewhere,
· The assaults against private life and secular life style,
· The neo-liberal policies attacking labor and social rights,
· The gradually increasing lack of trust in the judiciary due to severe violations of the right to fair trial, and the transformation of the judiciary and all legal remedy mechanisms into nonfunctional shams,
· A de facto ban of abortion and C-sections, and being insensitive towards the cultural, legal and political demands of women and for creating anti-female policies,
· The monopolization of the media, the high levels of censorship and auto-censorship, the firing of journalists standing up for the right of the public to trustworthy information,
· The blacklisting of people in academia and pressures against independent academic studies,
· The lack of investigation into the claims of corruption in university entrance exams like the ÖSS, KPDS, and no impunity for the parties responsible,
· Ever increasing youth unemployment and ignoring the anxiety of youth about their future,
· The legislation of laws, aimed at completely changing fundamental policy fields very closely pertaining to the future of the country such as the education system, without ever being debated or discussed, but unanimously passed surreptitiously in parliament sessions in the middle of the night with undue haste and confusion. The law passed to intervene in people’s life styles is one such example.THE DISSENT OF WOMEN
In a country where at least five women are killed every day and the killing of women has reached the level of femicide, the government has wearied women with their patriarchal and morality based discourses.

Women have become one of the main forces behind the foundation of this resistance due to their grievances on these issues:
* The disbanding of the Women’s Ministry,
* The lack of effective punishment for the perpetrators of harassment and rape crimes and   for the prevention of child sexual exploitation,
* Discourses on the inequality of men and women, discourses and policies claiming that women can only exist within the home,
* Demands for every woman to bear five children, a de facto ban on abortion and C-sections, the requirement of a prescription for morning-after pills thereby paving the way for blacklisting of sexual affairs,
* The lack of women appointed to decision-making mechanisms,
* The hostile attitude towards the women’s movement and feminists


· We call all governments to stop using chemical gas to silence their people, but instead to recognize chemical gas as a weapon; to immediately cease production of chemical gas all around the world, to confiscate the stocks, to ban the use of any kind of chemical gas whether in time of peace or war.
· All the media companies in Turkey and across the world to do their job of supplying authentic information from within the protest, about the true dimensions of the struggle for democracy, peace and freedom which began in Taksim, directly and without censorship to all peoples.
· A warning to be given to governments supporting or staying silent about the anti-democratic practices of Turkey’s rulers for their own profit.
· A joint and more effective struggle to be put up against majority governments for the imposition of fundamentalism on the people as the only alternative.
· Alternatives to be made available and feasible against every part of social/community life being subjected to market norms and be turned into vehicles for unearned income.


· The government should step down; the Prime Minister should resign from politics. A transition government should be established in order to free Turkey from all the constitutional and legal legislations of the 12 September 1980 military coup, and to fulfill the political demands of all groups.
· Police violence against meetings and demonstration marches all across Turkey should immediately cease. Detentions and arrests should halt and people in custody be released without any charges pressed against them or criminal records filed, effective immediately.
· Starting with the Minister of Internal Affairs, all individuals responsible for the disproportionate violence perpetrated against the peaceful demonstrations should immediately be released from duty, criminal cases should be filed against them and they should be prosecuted for “torture and crimes against humanity” in civil law suits.
· Starting with the Taksim Gezi Park Project, all government projects against nature, history, art, science and labor, should be canceled.
· Policies should start to be implemented that protect the rights of all citizens without discriminating against anyone on any ground, and enable the citizens’ active participation in every field of public life.

Founding text [EN]

We are feminists. We come from five continents, fighting for equal rights in law and in practice, and for the emancipation of all people.

Our vision is a world of equality, respect, and dignity for all. To realize this vision, we fight against all systems of oppression and domination which exist on this planet: male dominance, racism, the injunction of heteronormativity, and economic and class oppression. These systems of oppression and domination intersect and reinforce each other.

As feminists, we struggle for equality between women and men, but also for equality between all women. We are committed and engaged in a struggle against a political, economic and social system called patriarchy. It is this system, in place in every corner of the world, which leads to the oppression of half of humanity. It is this system which perpetuates a range of inequalities: the gender gap in wages and pensions; gender and sexual violence, especially in conflicts; sexual exploitation and prostitution, at the intersection of all systems of domination; the lack of women in decision-making positions; poverty and marginalization; sexism and sexual objectification in the media; and an unequal distribution of reproductive and parental tasks. This system has an even greater impact on many women as it intersects with other forms of oppression, especially for women of color, migrants, homeless, differently-abled, lesbians, and trans*, etc. Every day, we see the symptoms of a world that has chosen not to take the necessary steps to realize gender equality.

We, as feminists, refuse to accept this reality. We refuse to accept that due to the gender assigned to us, our emancipation is inhibited, opportunities are obstructed from us, and we face widespread violence. We are committed and mobilized, and we empower ourselves by challenging this reality.

We acknowledge that we live in different contexts. The struggles of feminists in Ireland, India, Iran, Chile, Australia, Congo, Canada, France, Belgium, South Africa or Morocco are not always the same. However our strength lies in the plurality of our situations, commitments, thoughts, and movements.

Beyond our diverse struggles, forms of mobilizations and demands, we have one thing in common: due to our gender and sex, we do not have equal opportunities for emancipation. Sexism and the oppression of women are universal, as is feminism.

Our feminist commitment is part of all social mobilizations that aim to raise awareness of struggles against precariousness, and for the separation of religious and political power. Systems of oppression and domination are not only similar in appearance, they are interconnected. By dismantling one, we affect them all.

We therefore are putting out a call to feminists from every country around the world: let us unite, let us make ourselves known, and let us raise our voices to incite a radical change.

Join the International Feminist Network!

Texte fondateur [FR]

Nous sommes féministes. Issues et issus des 5 continents, nous militons pour l’égalité des droits, l’égalité de fait et l’émancipation de toutes et tous.

Notre vision est celle d’un monde d’égalité, de respect, de dignité pour toutes et tous. Pour cela, nous combattons tous les systèmes d’oppressions qui existent sur notre planète : la domination masculine, le racisme, l’injonction d’hétéro-normativité, les oppressions économiques et de classe. Ces systèmes de domination se croisent et se renforcent.

En tant que féministes, notre combat est celui de l’égalité femmes-hommes, mais aussi de l’égalité entre toutes les femmes. Nous sommes engagées et engagés dans une lutte contre un système politique, économique et social qui s’appelle patriarcat. C’est ce système, qui, dans chaque coin et recoin du monde, place la moitié de l’humanité en situation de domination. C’est ce système qui perpétue les inégalités : écarts de salaires et de retraite ; violences sexistes et sexuelles, particulièrement pendant les conflits, l’exploitation sexuelle et la prostitution, à l’intersection de toutes les dominations ; absence des femmes des lieux de pouvoir ; précarité  et pauvreté ; sexisme et objectification des femmes dans les médias ; répartition inégale des tâches domestiques et parentales… C’est également ce système qui, couplé aux autres oppressions, a un impact encore plus fort sur de nombreuses femmes : immigrées, migrantes, femmes victimes de racisme en raison de leur couleur de peau, sans-papiers, en situation de handicap, lesbiennes, trans, etc. Nous voyons chaque jour les symptômes d’un monde qui n’a pas encore choisi de faire de l’égalité des sexes une réalité.

Nous, féministes, refusons cet état de fait. Nous refusons une assignation à un genre qui, au-delà des violences qu’elle engendre, freine notre émancipation, empêche l’ouverture des possibles. Nous nous engageons, nous nous mobilisons et parfois prenons le pouvoir pour changer la donne.

Nous savons bien que nous vivons dans des contextes différents. Les luttes des féministes en Irlande, en Inde, en Iran, au Chili, en Australie, en RDC Congo, au Canada, en France, en Belgique, en Afrique du Sud ou au Maroc ne sont pas toujours les mêmes. Cette pluralité de nos situations, de nos engagements, de nos pensées, de nos mouvements, est notre force.

Au-delà de nos situations distinctes, nos formes de mobilisations et nos revendications variées, nous partageons un point commun : en raison de notre sexe et de notre genre, nous n’avons pas les mêmes possibilités d’émancipation. Le sexisme et l’oppression des femmes sont universels : le féminisme l’est aussi.

Notre engagement féministe s’inscrit dans les mobilisations sociales qui visent à faire reculer la précarité, l’obscurantisme et à lutter pour la séparation du pouvoir politique et du religieux. Les systèmes de domination et d’oppression se ressemblent et se rejoignent : en faisant reculer l’un, nous les faisons reculer tous.

Nous lançons donc un appel aux féministes de tous les pays du monde : unissons-nous, faisons-nous connaître, faisons entendre nos voix pour obtenir un changement radical.

Rejoignez le réseau féministe international !

Texto fundador [ES]

Somos feministas. Desde los cinco continentes, militamos por la igualdad de derechos, la igualdad de los hechos y la emancipación de todas y todos.

Nuestra visión es de un mundo de igualdad, de respeto, de dignidad para todas y todos. Para ello, luchamos contra todos los sistemas de opresiones que existen en nuestro planeta: la dominación masculina, el racismo, el mandato de heteronormatividad, las opresiones económicas y de clase. Estos sistemas de dominación se entrecruzan y se refuerzan.

Como feministas, nuestra lucha es la de la igualdad entre varones y mujeres, pero también de la igualdad entre todas las mujeres. Estamos comprometidas y comprometidos en una lucha contra un sistema político, económico y social llamado patriarcado. Un sistema que sitúa a la mitad de la humanidad en una posición de dominio en todos los rincones del mundo. Un sistema que perpetúa las desigualdades: brecha de género salarial y en las pensiones jubilatorias, violencia sexual, sobre todo en los conflictos, explotación sexual y prostitución, en el cruce de todas las dominaciones, ausencia de mujeres en los espacios de poder, precariedad y pobreza, sexismo y cosificación en los medios de comunicación, distribución desigual de las tareas domésticas y parentales… Un sistema que, agregado a las otras opresiones, tiene un impacto aún más fuerte sobre muchas mujeres: inmigrantes, migrantes, indocumentadas, de color, en situación de discapacidad, lesbianas, trans, etc.  Todos los días vemos los síntomas de un mundo que todavía no ha optado por hacer de la igualdad de género una realidad.

Nosotras, feministas, rechazamos esta situación. Nos negamos a estar sometidas a un rol de género que, además de la violencia que engendra, entorpece nuestra emancipación e impide la apertura de nuevas posibilidades. Nos comprometemos, nos movilizamos y, a veces, tomamos el poder para cambiar la situación.

Sabemos que vivimos en diferentes contextos. Las luchas de las feministas en Irlanda, India, Irán, Chile, Australia, República Democrática de Congo, Canadá, Francia, Bélgica, Sudáfrica y Marruecos no siempre son las mismas. Esta pluralidad de situaciones, compromisos, pensamientos y movimientos es nuestra fuerza.

Más allá de la diferencia de nuestra situación, nuestras formas de movilizarnos y nuestras diversas reivindicaciones, compartimos un punto en común: a causa de nuestro sexo y de nuestro género, no tenemos las mismas posibilidades de emancipación. El sexismo y la opresión de las mujeres son universales: el feminismo también lo es.

Nuestro compromiso feminista se inscribe en el marco de las movilizaciones sociales que luchan en contra de la precariedad, el oscurantismo y a favor de la separación del poder religioso y político. Los sistemas de dominación y de opresión son parecidos y se unen: haciendo retroceder a uno los hacemos retroceder a todos.

Hacemos un llamamiento a las feministas de todos los países del mundo: unámonos, démonos a conocer, hagamos escuchar nuestra voz para obtener un cambio radical.

¡Únete a la red internacional feminista!

النص المؤسس

مشروع النص الأساسي.

نحن النسويات، قادمات و قادمون من القارات الخمس، نناضل من أجل المساوات في الحقوق، المساوات في الممارسة العملية، و تحرر الجميع.

نظرتنا هي عالم تتحقق فيه المساوات، الاحترام، و الكرامة للجميع. لذلك نحارب و نقاوم جميع أنظمة القمع التي توجد على كوكبنا: الهمينة الذكورية، العنصرية…، القمع الاقتصادي و الطبقي. أنظمة السيطرة هذه تتقاطع و تعزز كل منها الآخر.

كنسويات، نضالنا هو من أجل المساوات بين النساء و الرجال، و لكن أيضا المساوات بين جميع النساء. نحن ملتزمات و ملتزمون بالمحاربة ضد النظام السياسي، الإقتصادي و الإجتماعي المسمى بالنظام الأبوي. هذا النظام الذي في كل ركن من أركان و أنحاء العالم، يضع نصف البشرية في حالة السيادة. هذا هو النظام الذي يديم اللا مساواة: الأجور و المعاشات التقاعدية، العنف الجنسي و القائم على نوع الجنس، و بالخصوص أثناء الصراعات،  الإستغلال الجنسي و الدعارة، عند تقاطع جميع أنواع الهيمنة، غياب النساء في أماكن السلطة، التهميش و الفقر، التمييز و استهداف النساء في الإعلام، التوزيع الغير المعتدل في الأعمال المنزلية بالنسبة للآباء و الأمهات… هذا هو النظام الذي، المرتبط بأنواع القمع الأخرى، و الذي له تأثير قوي على العديد من النساء: المهاجرات، ضحايا العنصرية بسبب لون بشرتهم، ذوي الإعاقة، المثليات… كل يوم نرى أعراض العالم الذي لم يخرت بعد جعل المساوات بين الجنسين حقيقة واقعة.

نحن النسويات، نرفض هذه الحقيقة، نرفض المثول أمام هذا الميز الذي، على الرغم من العنف الذي يولده، وبطئ تحررنا، و يمنع افتتاح الاحتمالات. فنحن ملتزمات و ملتزمون، أن نقوم بالتعبئة و دي بعض الأحيان ان نأخذ السلطة لتغيير ذلك.

نعلم أننا نعيش في سياقات مختلفة، النضال النسوي في أيرلندا والهند وإيران وتشيلي وأستراليا وجمهورية الكونغو الديمقراطية والكونغو، وكندا، وفرنسا، وبلجيكا، وجنوب أفريقيا والمغرب ليست دائما نفس الشيء. تعدد حالاتنا، و التزامتنا، أفكارنا، حركاتنا، هو مصدر قوتنا.

وراء أوضاعنا المستقلة، أشكال التعبئة لدينا و مطالبنا المختلفة، نتقاسم نقطة مشتركة: بسبب جنسنا و ميزنا، ليست لنا نفس إمكانيات التحرر. التمييز و قمع النساء هي مسألة عالمية، النسوية هي كذلك.

التزامنا النسوي في التعبئة الإجتماعية اذي يهدف إلى الحد من الأنظمة الأبوية، الظلامية، النضال من أجل الفصل بين السلطة الدينية و السياسية. أنظمة السيادة و القمع متشابهة و تلتقي في: من خلال إجبار واحدة للرجوع إلى الوراء ستنحاز كلها.

لذلك نناشد النسويات من جميع دول العالم: دعونا نتحد، دعونا نرفع أصواتنا لغيير جذري.


المرجوا الإنضمام إلى الشبكة النسوية العالمية.

Gründungstext [DE]

Wir sind Feminist*innen. Auf 5 verschiedenen Kontinenten kämpfen wir für die rechtliche und faktische Gleichstellung und die Emanzipation aller Menschen.

Unsere Vision ist eine gleichberechtigte Welt ,eine Welt des gegenseitigen Respekts und der Würde für alle. Um das zu erreichen, kämpfen wir gegen alle Systeme und Mechanismen der Unterdrückung und Dominierung, die auf unserem Planeten bis heute fortbestehen: männliche Herrschaft, Rassimus, der Zwang zur Heteronormalität, sowie wirtschaftliche Ausbeutung und Klassenherrschaft. Diese systemischen Unterdrückungen überschneiden sich und verstärken einander.

Als Feminist*innen treten wir für die Gleichstellung von Frau und Mann ein, aber auch für die Gleichheit aller Frauen der Kontinente. Wir engagieren uns im Kampf gegen das politische, wirtschaftliche und soziale System namens Patriarchat, denn es ist dieses System, das in jedem Winkel der Erde die Hälfte der Menschheit in eine Position als Unterdrückte zwingt, das Ungleichheiten perpetuiert und rechtfertigt. So verschieden die (täglichen) Kämpfe auch sein mögen, Disparitäten herrschen überall, wohin wir auch blicken: Lohn- und Rentenunterschiede; sexuelle und sexualisierte Gewalt, vor allem in Konflikten und Kriegen, darunter sexuelle Ausbeutung und Prostitution an der Schnittstelle zwischen verschiedenen Herrschaftsgewalten; die Abwesenheit bzw. Unterrepräsentierung von Frauen* in Spitzen- und Führungspositionen, berufliche Unsicherheit, Prekarität und Armut; Sexismus und sexuelle Objektifizierung der Frau in den Medien; ungleiche Verteilung der häuslichen und elterlichen Aufgaben, etc.

Dieses System hat, einen noch größeren Einfluss auf zahlreiche Frauen*, wenn es an andere Formen der Unterdrückung gekoppelt ist; insbesondere Migrantinnen, Ausländerinnen ohne Aufenthaltstitel, women of colour, Frauen* mit Behinderung, Lesben, Bisexuelle und Trans*, usw. Jeden Tag sehen wir die Symptome einer Welt, die sich noch immer nicht entschieden hat, die notwendigen Schritte zu tun, um die Gleichstellung der Geschlechter zu verwirklichen.

Wir als Feminist*innen weigern uns, diese Situation zu akzeptieren. Wir engagieren uns – wir sind zahlreich – wir mobilisieren und wir haben die Macht, etwas zu verändern. Wir lehnen uns gegen die uns zugeordneten Geschlechterrollen auf, die gegen uns verwendet werden und uns in unserer Emanzipation und unseren Möglichkeiten einschränken.

Wir sind uns bewusst, dass wir in sehr unterschiedlichen Kontexten leben. Die Kämpfe der Feminist*innen in Irland, Indien, Iran, Chile, Deutschland, Australien, DRKongo, Kanada, Frankreich, Belgien, Südafrika oder Marokko sind nicht immer identisch. Doch die Vielfältigkeit unserer Lebensumstände, unseres Engagements, unserer Gedanken und Ideen, unserer Bewegungen und Strömungen ist zugleich unsere Kraft!

Jenseits der konkreten Lebenslagen, den verschiedenen Forderungen und den unterschiedlichen Formen des Engagements haben wir doch eins gemeinsam: wegen unseres biologischen und gesellschaftlichen Geschlechts haben wir nicht dieselben Möglichkeiten, uns zu emanzipieren und zu verwirklichen.

Der Sexismus und die Unterdrückung gegen Frauen sind universell: der Feminismus ist es auch!

Unser feministisches Engagement ist Teil anderer sozialer Bewegungen, die gegen prekäre Lebensbedingungen und gegen das Bestreben, Menschen in Unwissenheit zu halten, kämpfen und die sich für die Trennung von religiöser und politischer Macht einsetzen. All diese Mechanismen der Unterdrückung und Dominanz sind nicht nur ähnlich, sie sind eng miteinander verknüpft: wenn wir gegen eins davon kämpfen, schwächen wir auch die anderen.

Wir appellieren daher an Feminist*innen aller Länder der Welt: vereinigen wir uns, machen wir uns bekannt, lasst uns unsere Stimmen erheben, um einen radikalen Wandel einzuleiten.
