Feminist Voice Party (Zine Launch)

25.10.2018  

The 8th of March Coalition was formed early in 2018 to mobilise supporters for International Women's Day. We are political feminists of many nationalities who reside in Prague and are committed to a revolutionary transformation of society. This event is aiming to bring together the different groups (feminist, student groups, etc) working in Prague so we can support each other. Our magazine has taken the theme of sexual harassment not for any contemporary fashion but because it is an everyday reality for many women in homes, schools, workplaces and indeed universities. We hope you use our publication not just as a source of information but as a key to action. There will be drinks, food and great company!

Zvýšení reprezentace žen o 50%.

Japan General Election Result: 50% Increase in Women`s Representation in Lower House (*1)

Thirty five women were elected in June 25th election comprising 7.3% of the total 480 seats. The figure came close to the highest representation achieved in the first general election conducted after the World War II back in 1946.

The growth amounts to 50% increase compared to 23 women elected in the previous general election. In the single-seat constituency system, 166 women (13.9% of overall candidates) ran and fought hard but merely 13 were elected making 4.3% of 300 allocated seats.

Although this election was marked by proliferation of "se-shu" hereditary candidates(*2), success of women with experiences in local parliament or local administration is a good sign.
>From the geographic perspective, the result was "high in the West and low in the East." Prefectures such as Osaka and Hyogo had multiple number of women winners while no women were elected in Tokyo.

Numbers of successful female candidates for the respective parties were as follows: Liberal Democratic Party (4); Democratic Party (3); Social Democratic Party(3); Conservative Party (1); Mushozoku-no-kai = non-party-coalition(1); non-party (1).

In the proportional representation system, women succeeded in taking 22 seats out of the 180 allocated. The representation at 12.2% is three times higher than that of the single-seat constituency system. Notably, Social Democratic Party pushed women by succeeding to send 7 women through this proportional representation sytem.
Numbers of women according to major political parties were as follows: Liberal Democratic Party (4); Democratic Party (4); Komei Party (3); Liberal Party (1); Communist Party (4); Social Democratic Party(7).

Since seat allocation for proportional representation system had been cut-down (by 20) this spring, there was a growing concern that the reduction in number would lead to a decrease of female representatives.
Nevertheless, the big success of women was mainly due to two factors: most of the political parties added more female candidates than usual with the movement backed up by the strong voices among women promoting to secure more seat in the Diet. Secondly women`s groups outside political parties carried out vigorous campaign through internet or other networks.

However, according to IPU`s international survey (*3), 7.3% female represenation in parliament still ranks low at 105th out of 164 countries. Japan continues to rank the lowest among the G-8 countries soon to gather for Kyushu- Okinawa Summit scheduled for 21-23 July 2000. In light of this reality, further actions from the political parties to increase the number of female candidates are to be expected.
