#Switzerland: Anarchist participation in the women’s strike

On June 14, 2019, women will go on strike throughout Switzerland. Based on the women strike in 1991 and in solidarity with women’s movements all over the world, there will also be a day of diverse protest in Bern.

Originally published by Barrikade. Edited machine translation by Enough 14.

Note: Enough 14 is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.

Among other things, we organise a central meeting and lingering point, activities, events and much more. Together we want to set an example against patriarchy and make the concerns of women visible in public space! If you would like to participate in the organisation or realize your own ideas with our support, please contact us: agb@immerda.ch
In addition, an open meeting takes place on May 4. at 15.00 o’clock in the Reitschule. This meeting is to offer space, in order to take part actively in the organization.

Why we strike on June 14, 2019

As women we still experience oppression and discrimination based on our gender on a daily basis and worldwide. Examples are verbal, psychological or physical violence, exploitation in the capitalist system or massive wage disadvantages compared to men. The supposed freedom of women in modern society ignores the still existing oppression by patriarchy. Self-optimisation and alleged equal opportunities mean that women are no longer “only” expected to do care work, but are also expected to study, be successful at work, take part in sports, work on their appearance and correspond to sexual role models.

Let’s get organized!

Against patriarchal oppression and the shift to the right, various women’s movements have formed worldwide in recent months. Argentina, Mexico, USA, Ireland, Germany, India, Rojava are just a few of the many places where the resistance against the patriarchate has been organized offensively. We want to take up these impulses and set a sign together with all people who are affected by patriarchal oppression. Let’s take the street and join the women strikes on June 14, 2019!
