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!

KEY ROLE FOR WOMEN IN MIDDLE EAST PEACE PROCESS

2. duben 2003  |  http://www.neww.org.pl
An International Women's Commission, playing a full part in any Middle East peace negotiations, could help make women's voices heard in the process by linking grassroots activities to high-level decision-making bodies and offsetting the gender imbalance characteristic of these bodies. This idea, as well as other suggestions on how to achieve a sustainable peace in the Middle East, was discussed during a public hearing held on 17 March 2003 by the Women's Rights Committee on the subject 'Women building Bridges for Peace and Security in the Middle East'.

This idea, as well as other suggestions on how to achieve a sustainable peace in the Middle East, was discussed during a public hearing held on 17 March 2003 by the Women's Rights Committee on the subject 'Women building Bridges for Peace and Security in the Middle East'.

Speaking on behalf of the Council Presidency, Greek Foreign Minister Georgios A. Papandreou promised to back proposals for such a commission. He said that, while ideally it would participate in decision-making, even setting up an advisory body would already be a big step. Like other speakers he acknowledged the need to involve women and civil society more closely in peace talks, saying that problems could not be solved by military means and that satisfactory results depended on popular support. The Greek Presidency would be breathing life into the old idea of a cease-fire during the Olympic Games, the "Olympic Truce", for the Athens games in 2004. Moreover, he promised that the gender issue and women's role in international politics would be addressed at EU foreign minister level.

A Commission representative described ongoing EU peace projects in the region, many based on the involvement of women, and suggested these could help create intercommunal links. Other speakers focused on the adverse effects of the current conflict, such as environmental damage, malnutrition, the refugee situation, violence against women and social and economic consequences. However, one ray of hope was the accounts of Israeli and Palestinian women working side-by-side in the struggle for peace, with some speakers arguing that women could change the culture of violence into one of peace and were therefore crucial to the peace process.

Luisa Morgantini, Chair of the Delegation for relations with the Palestinian Legislative Council, stressed that the international community had to take its share of the responsibility. "We have to choose peace and justice and recognise each other's right to exist", she said. Her view that two states had the right to co-exist was backed by Naomi Chazan, former Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, who was the originator of the idea of an International Women's Commission. On the other hand, Aroub Suayter, of "Friends of Alkarara", the Committee of the Palestinian Community in Greece, said she believed in one state with full and equal rights for Israelis and Palestinians.
