Greeting Message of the CWI (SH)

on occasion of the 105th International Women’s day

On the occasion of the 105th International Women's Day and the 5th Anniversary of the founding of the Communist Women's International, the CWI (SH) sends militant, world revolutionary greetings to all revolutionary women all over the world and to all those who support their struggle.

On the International Women 's Day the proletarian women all over the world raise their collective voice against their exploitation and oppression! 
On this particular 105th World Women 's Day the proletarian women begin to organize their world-revolutionary global fight for the overthrow of world capitalism with the goal of world communism, and thus the final liberation of women. The International Woman’s Day is a means of winning the women’s labor reserves to the side of the world proletariat. The struggle for women’s emancipation directly involves a struggle against world capital itself.

The inevitability of oppression and exploitation of women can only be eliminated by means of the removal of the inevitability of capitalism - that is, by the dictatorship of the world proletariat and the establishment of world socialism. Only in the world communism the woman is free.

 It is the foundation of the Communist International which was the world-historical starting point of the revolutionary Communist Women 's World Movement: 

"The Communist International can only fulfill its tasks, can only secure the final victory of the world proletariat and the abolition of the capitalist system through the closely related common struggle of women and men of the working class. The dictatorship of the proletariat can only be lively and active, can only be achieved and maintained by the participation of women of the working-class" 
(See Minutes from March 2 to March 19, 1919, Hamburg 1921).


Today, the common world-revolutionary organization of proletarian women of all countries is the 
COMMUNIST WOMEN'S INTERNATIONAL (SH). 

Revolutionary women all over the world - join the Communist Women_s International (Stalinist-Hoxhaists) !

 

Exploited and oppressed women - rise up!
It is impossible to eliminate sex-slavery without eliminating class slavery!
Long live the 8th March - the International Women's Day!
Long live the proletarian internationalism of women!
Long live the world communist women's movement!
Long live the revolutionary struggle of women against hunger, war and fascism!
Long live the great achievements of socialist women in the Soviet Union and Albania!
Long live the world violent socialist revolution!
Long live global armed proletarian dictatorship!Long live world socialism and world communism!
Long live the Communist Women's International (Stalinist-Hoxhaist)!

Greeting Message of the Comintern (SH)

on occasion of the 104th International Women’s day

 

On the occasion of the 104th International Women's Day and the 4th Anniversary of the founding of the Communist Women's International, the Comintern (SH) sends militant, world revolutionary greetings to all revolutionary women all over the world and to all those who support their struggle.


All violent treatments of women, their unspeakable exploitation and oppression are caused by capitalist-imperialist wage slavery system. Capitalist private property is ultimately the root of sexual slavery and slavery of classes.
Therefore, the liberation of women is closely linked to the abolition of private ownership of the means of production and their transformation into collective socialized property.

The ruling classes are unable to solve the issue of women, in particular, as they are also incapable of solving the social question, in general.
That’s why it was needed to found a proletarian women's movement which - contrary to the bourgeois and petty bourgeois women's movement - wants to eliminate the inevitability of exploitation and oppression of women, side by side with the exploited and oppressed men - through the overthrow of the bourgeoisie and the establishment of the rule of the proletariat.
The inevitability of oppression and exploitation of women can only be eliminated by means of the removal of the inevitability of capitalism - that is, by the dictatorship of the world proletariat and the establishment of world socialism. Only in the world communism the woman is free.
For the communist women's movement, the world socialist revolution is the only way to liberate all women around the world.
Without world-revolutionary class struggle of the proletariat, there is no liberation of women. And without the participation of women in the destruction of world capitalism, there is no world socialism and world communism.

Let’s recall the words from comrade Enver:

"The Party and the working class should measure the advance toward the complete construction of socialist society with the deepening and progress of the women's revolution within our proletarian revolution. If the women lag behind, then the revolution marks time."


Exploited and oppressed women - rise up!


It is impossible to eliminate sex-slavery without eliminating class slavery!

Long live the 8th March - the International Women's Day!

Long live the proletarian internationalism of women!

Long live the world communist women's movement!

Long live the revolutionary struggle of women against hunger, war and fascism!

Long live the great achievements of socialist women in the Soviet Union and Albania!

Long live the world violent socialist revolution!

Long live global armed proletarian dictatorship!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the Communist Women's International (Stalinist-Hoxhaist)!

लंबे समय से भारत में हिंसक समाजवादी क्रांति रहते हैं

 

2014

 

अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महिला दिवस, 8 मार्च, 2014

लंबे समय से अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महिला दिवस जीना

 

प्रागितिहास के अंत समय से ही जुल्म और अत्याचार हमेशा महिलाओं की जिंदगी का हिस्सा रहा है। लेकिन पूँजीवादी व्यवस्था के अधीन इस जुल्म व अत्याचार का उन्मूलन नहीं हो सकता। कम्युनिस्ट समाज के आने पर ही महिलाएँ इससे निजात व छुटकारा पायेंगी। लिहाजा सर्वहारा वर्ग के आम आंदोलन में अपनी मुस्तैद भागीदारी से ही वे खुद को स्वतंत्र कर सकती हैं और इसी में समस्त मानवता की मुक्ति भी है।

 

परिवार निजी संपत्ति और राज्य की उत्पत्ति (1887) में एजेंल्स नारी के उत्पीड़न की निंदा कर चुके थे और उन्होंने दृढ़ता से इस बात की पुष्टि की कि मातृसत्तात्मक समाजों के खत्म होने और पितृसत्तात्मक समाज के उदय के साथ ही नारी सदा सदा के लिए 'पुरुष वर्ग' की 'सर्वहारा' बन गई। 1891 में अगस्त बेबेल ने नारी और समाजवाद में स्त्रियों की दशा पर किये गये एजेंल्स के कार्य के गहन ऐतिहासिक अध्ययन को जारी रखा है।

उन्नीसवीं शताब्दी के खत्म होने के बाद से ही नारी के शोषण का सवाल पूरी मानवता की मुक्ति के साथ-साथ सर्वहारा वर्ग के संघर्ष से जुड़ा सवाल रहा है। बीसवीं शताब्दी की नारकीय स्थितियाँ असहनीय होने पर सर्वहारा महिलाओं को मजबूर होकर सर्वहारा संघर्ष के मोर्चे पर कूदना पड़ा।

बीसवीं शताब्दी के सर्वहारा आंदोलन में महिलाओं के संघर्ष

मार्च 8 इसका प्रारम्भ है जब न्यूयार्क के कपड़ा मजदूरों ने 8 मार्च 1857 को प्रदर्शन किया, जिसे पुलिस द्वारा दबा दिया गया। हालाँकि प्रत्यक्ष तौर पर अमरीका के सर्वहारा आंदोलन से जुड़ा ऐसा कोइ अभिलेख मौजूद नहीं है जो इस घटना का प्रमाण दे।

सन् 1890 में क्लारा जेटकिन की प्रेरणा से मजदूर वर्ग की प्रमुख पार्टी एस.पी.डी. में जर्मनी में समाजवादी महिला आंदोलन उभरा। उन्होंने रोजा लुक्ज़मबर्ग के समर्थन से 'समानता' नाम की पत्रिका स्थापित की जिसने क्रांति के जरिये पूँजीवाद को उखाड़ उसकी जगह, विश्व कम्युनिस्ट समाज की नींव रखने की घोषणा की। दुनिया भर में, पश्चिमी यूरोप और संयुक्त राज्य दोनों में ही महिला मजदूरों ने शोषण की अमानुशिक परिस्थितियों के खिलाफ लामबंदी शुरू की। उन्होंने मुख्य रूप से काम के घण्टों में कभी करने, पुरुषों के बराबर मजदूरी देने, बाल मजदूरी का उन्मूलन तथा महिला मजदूरों के जीवन यापन की परिस्थितियों में सुधार की माँग रखी। इन आर्थिक माँगों के साथ-साथ उन्होंने राजनीतिक माँगें भी उठाईं, खासकर महिलाओं को वोट के अधिकार की मांग। (हालाँकि उनकी यह राजनीतिक माँग बाद में बुर्जुआजी के उस महिला आंदोलन में डुबो दी गई और उसमें खो गई जिसे 'नारीमताधिकारवादियों' के नाम से जाना जाता है)।

लेकिन खासकर 1907 से महिला मजदूरों और समाजवादियों ने खुद को पूँजीवादी बर्बरता, जो प्रथम विश्व युध्द की पूर्वसूचना थी, के खिलाफ संघर्ष के अगुआदस्तों मे पाया।

उसी वर्ष 17 अगस्त को क्लारा जेटकिन ने स्टुटगर्ट में पहले अंतर्राष्ट्रीय समाजवादी महिला सममेलन का एलान किया। पूरे यूरोप और संयुक्त राज्य से 58 प्रतिनिधियों ने इसमें शिरकत की और महिलाओं के वोट के अधिकार पर एक प्रस्ताव स्वीकृत किया। इस प्रस्ताव को एस.पी.डी की स्टुट्गर्ट काँग्रेस द्वारा स्वीकृत कर लिया गया। सदी के बदलाव पर, उस समय जब एक ही काम के लिए महिलाओं की मजदूरी पुरुषों की आधी थी, अनेक महिला संगठन और बहुत बड़ी तादाद में महिलाएँ सभी मजदूर संघर्षों में सक्रिय रूप से शामिल थीं।

सन् 1908 और 1909 में न्यूयार्क श्हर में कपड़ा-मिल मजदूर महिलाओं के बड़े-बड़े आंदोलन हुए। 'रोटी और गुलाब' की मार्फत भूख से सामूहिक मुक्ति और खुश्हाल जीवन की परिस्थितियाँ, बाल मजदूरी उन्मूलन और बेहतर मजदूरी की माँगे उन्होंने रखीं।

सन् 1910 में महिलाओं की सोशलिस्ट इंटरनेशंल ने शांति के लिए एक अपील जारी की। 8 मार्च 1911 को अंतर्राश्ट्रीय महिला दिवस पर यूरोप भर में एक लाख महिलाओं ने अनेक प्रदर्शन किये। कुछ दिन बाद 25 मार्च को न्यूयार्क की ट्रायंगल कपड़ा फैक्ट्री में लगी भीष्ण आग में फैक्ट्री में सुरक्षा उपायों की कमी के कारण 140 से ज्यादा महिला मजदूरों की जलकर मौत हो गयी। महिलाओं के शोषण की भीषण परिस्थितियों और उनको उनकी राजनीतिक स्वतंत्रता से वंचित करने के बुर्जुआ संसदीय प्रयासों के खिलाफ विद्रोह को इस घटना ने और अधिक धधका दिया। 1913 में दुनिया भर की महिलाएँ वोट के अपने अधिकार की माँग को उठा रहीं थीं। ब्रिटेन में बुर्जुआ 'नारीमताधिकारवादी' भी कुछ ज्यादा ही उग्र रवैया अपना रहे थे।

लेकिन जारशाही रूस में खासकर महिलाओं के संघर्ष ने समस्त मजदूर वर्ग के क्रांतिकारी आंदोलन को प्रेरणा व दिशा प्रदान की। 1912 और 1914 के दौरान रूसी महिला मजदूरों ने गुप्त सभाएँ आयोजित कीं और साम्राज्यवादी हत्याकांडों पर अपना विरोध दर्ज किया। युध्द भड़कने के बाद यूरोप भर की महिलाएँ उनसे मिल गईं।

 

Women must take the lead in organising to end all exploitation and oppression!

Call of the Communist Ghadar Party of India on the occasion of International Women’s Day, 8th March, 2013

All over the world, women are on the streets protesting against the existing conditions.  Women in all continents are protesting against unjust imperialist wars and occupation of nations by alien armies.  They are opposing the brutal violation of human rights in the name of fighting terrorism.  They are fighting against the continuing discrimination, degradation and physical violence that women face on a daily basis.

In our country, women are the worst victims of the terror unleashed by the so-called security forces, which actually provide security only to members of the ruling class.  The state is colonial and imperialist in nature.  The entire security apparatus is hostile to women and men of the working class, of peasant families and of the oppressed nations and peoples.  Rape by the central armed forces is an everyday occurrence in Kashmir, the Northeast and other so-called disturbed areas.  Women are harassed and raped within police stations and jails all over the country, and even in so-called rehabilitation homes.  They are oppressed by the very authority that is supposed to protect them.     

It is no wonder that more and more women are coming out on the streets and clashing with the ruling establishment. They are demanding the rights that belong to them as women and as human beings, which are presently denied to them.

As the ones who bear the new generation and play a critical role in human reproduction, women have the rightful claim to state guaranteed basic services to ensure safe motherhood and childbirth.  This is not guaranteed to millions of women in our country.  Women workers have the right to maternity leave, which right is presently not recognized as a universal right.  It is not enforced wherever it is recognized.

What is the root cause of the widespread violation of women’s rights in modern society?  This question was answered over 100 years ago by the working women who proclaimed 8th March as International Women’s Day.  Working women of that time declared that the root cause of their oppression lies in capitalism and the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie.  They proclaimed that communism, which is the condition for the emancipation of the working class, is also the condition for the complete emancipation of women.  They set their goal as the overthrow of capitalism and its replacement by socialism, the first phase of the revolutionary transition to communism.

Since that historic conclusion was made, capitalism has dragged the world into two devastating world wars.  The reactionary bourgeoisie unleashed fascism in response to the advance of the working class movement for socialism.  The capitalists of the world collaborated in bringing about the degeneration and destruction of the Soviet Union.  They then claimed that Marxism is no longer valid and attempted to impose post-modernism on the women’s movement.  Claiming that there is no alternative to a capitalist economy and a bourgeois democratic state, they have created one disaster after another.  The imperialist states, headed by the US, are today the primary organizers of large-scale terror and unjust wars of occupation and re-colonization of independent states. 

The inescapable conclusion from this entire historical experience is that the overthrow of capitalism is a necessary condition to end the violation of women’s rights.  We are still living in the epoch of imperialism and the proletarian revolution.  We need to learn from the experience of the class struggle so far to develop the theory and tactics of the revolution suited to the present conditions.

The entire mass propaganda machine of the global monopoly capitalist media has been deployed to prevent women from drawing these warranted conclusions. 

Every agency of the United Nations working in India is putting out funds for securing so-called “safe spaces” for women.  Security of women has been separated and singled out as the priority issue to be tackled, as if it can be solved without addressing the source of the oppression of women.

The World Bank has posed the following question for discussion in its upcoming global meet: “What will it take to eliminate gender-based violence in South Asia?

Gender-based violence is not confined only to South Asia.  It is a worldwide problem.  It has its source in the exploitative and parasitic capitalist-imperialist system, which engenders all kinds of violence to keep down the toiling majority.  Hence the real question is:  What will it take to put an end to capitalism and open the path to social progress?

The politicians of the ruling class in our country initially responded to the mass protests in Delhi last December by slandering the protestors, calling them “dented and painted women”.  The women protesting on the streets were portrayed in the media as being from the so-called middle class.  In actual fact, the vast majority of them were working class women and student youth.  It is also a fact that both men and women participated actively in the protests. 

At the present time, the Manmohan Singh government is making a show of addressing the issue of violence against women.  An Ordinance has been issued to strengthen punishment for rape, following the recommendations submitted by the Justice Verma Commission.  Finance Minister Chidambaram has announced the setting up of a “Nirbhaya” Fund with a corpus of Rs. 1000 crore, to be used “to make the country safer for women”. 

The lack of safety for women in our country is not because there are too few policemen or because too little money is spent on security.  The problem lies in the quality, the class nature of the State.  The existing state is colonial and imperialist in nature and serves the bourgeois class.  The police machinery is trained to enforce a colonial era criminal procedure code, designed to suppress all women and men with the exception of the ruling elite.  Strengthening this machinery will only intensify the oppression of the people.

Finance Minister Chidambaram has also promised in his budget speech to create an all-woman bank, to lend money to women’s individual and group enterprises.  This is a clever trick of the capitalist class, aimed at making more and more women the targets of bank loans.  Its aim is to expand the sphere for banks to loot the hard earned savings of working women.  Thousands of such women’s self-help groups in Andhra Pradesh are now facing a debt crisis.  The truth is that small enterprises funded by bank loans cannot survive for long in the existing capitalist market dominated by giant monopoly corporations.

The ruling class is resorting to the time tested tactics of appointing commissions, amending laws and introducing special programs to deceive the people and divert us from our main target.  We – the workers, peasants, women and youth – must not get diverted.  We must remain focused on the capitalist system, which is defended by the colonial-style bourgeois state and governed through the criminalized process of representative democracy. 

Capitalism, at its present stage of imperialism, is a global system of exploitation and plunder, of aggression, wars of conquest and wars for the imperialist re-division of the world.  It is an extremely exploitative and parasitic social system.  It is the source of never-ending violence and terror against the toiling majority of people, in addition to extreme insecurity of livelihood and unbearable levels of poverty.

Within the situation of acute global crisis, capitalism has been growing relatively rapidly in India.  This is sharpening class contradictions within our society, especially between the minority of exploiters and the majority of exploited workers and peasants. 

Capitalism is the motor behind the aggressive drive of the bourgeoisie and its program of globalisation through liberalisation and privatisation, aimed at enabling India to join the select club of global imperialist powers.

The capitalist economy of our country produces enormous wealth at one pole, concentrated in very few hands, through the exploitation of workers and plunder of the land and natural resources of peasants, tribal peoples and of entire nations and nationalities.  The wealth created by workers and peasants is pocketed by the capitalist class, headed by the Tatas, Ambanis, Mittals and other monopoly houses.  These monopolies are exporting more and more of their capital these days to plunder various countries abroad.  The state apparatus defends this economic system oriented towards maximum plunder at home and abroad. 

In a system which turns everything into a source of maximum profits for a super-rich minority, women will inevitably be exploited and oppressed.  Women are exploited as workers, as peasants and oppressed as women.  They are treated as objects of sexual gratification.  The victims of rape are deemed to be impure and ostracized.  The capitalist system and the state inherited from colonial times keep alive the caste system and various outdated customs that serve to deny women their most basic rights and to super-exploit them.

Responding to a criticism of recent hikes in the price of electric power in Delhi, Chief Minister Sheila Dixit reportedly said, “people must consume only what they can afford”! This reflects the outlook of the ruling bourgeois class and its leading political representatives.  They think a worker’s family or peasant family need not aspire for a refrigerator, air conditioner or any other modern appliance.  They think progress in living standards is meant only for privileged elite and not for those who toil. 

The political process is called democratic because every adult has an equal right to vote.  However, merely having the right to vote has not given the working people any say in shaping the course of society.  The only role the vast majority of people have is to choose among candidates selected by different parties of the bourgeois class.  This political process, dominated by parties of vested interests, serves the bourgeois class to impose its will on society. It completely excludes the toiling majority from the decision-making process.

The existing state and political system is a democracy only for the bourgeois class.  It is a brutal dictatorship over the working class and other oppressed classes and strata whose rights are blatantly violated.   

The leaders of the Congress Party and BJP are pretending to be very concerned these days about the safety of women.  Such parties of the bourgeoisie are in fact the principal sponsors of organised muscle power for narrow political ends.  They maintain informal armies of goondas and are the main drivers of the criminalization of politics in our country.  They swear by democracy while acting strictly in defence of the bourgeoisie and the exploitative and parasitic economic system.

Working women and men need to have political power in their hands in order to set the agenda and the course for society.  The existing outdated and colonial-style bourgeois republic needs to be replaced with a modern democratic state of workers’ and peasants’ rule.

We need a State that will be an instrument to rid our society of all forms of old oppressive relations -- all remnants of feudalism, the caste hierarchy and the entire legacy of colonialism, including capitalist exploitation and imperialist plunder.  It must recognize and protect the rights of every human being, and of every adult citizen, irrespective of caste, gender, religious belief or any other consideration.  It must vest sovereignty in the people.   

On an immediate basis, we need to organise to defend the rights of women by relying on our own strength and collective fighting capacity. Women and men need to unite and organise collective self-defense and mutual support as the most reliable security. 

The parties in the Parliament and the governments they run, the army and police they command, the judiciary that defends the laws they make – none of these can be relied upon to ensure the security or emancipation of women.  These institutions are responsible only to the bourgeois class. 

Women must organise as women, and as part of the working class and toiling majority of people, to defend ourselves and our rights.  We, the working women and men, girl and boy students, must build our own samitis in our workplaces, campuses and residential locations, In the course of fighting for our rights we must prepare to become the rulers of society. 

On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2013, Communist Ghadar Party calls on all women to unite and fight for an immediate end to the anti-worker, anti-people and anti-national program of liberalisation and privatisation!

Let us unite to fight for the Navnirman of India, for the creation of a modern democratic state that vests sovereignty in the people!  Let us unite to overthrow capitalism as the condition for the completion of the democratic, anti-colonial, anti-feudal and anti-imperialist struggle!  Let us unite to build socialism through revolution! 

We call on women who are committed to fight for the cause of social progress to join the Communist Ghadar Party and strengthen the leadership of the working class and the revolutionary movement for communism!

 

Inquilab Zindabad!

महिलाओं को सभी प्रकार का शोषण-दमन खत्म करने के लिए संगठित होने में अगुवाई देनी होगी!

अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महिला दिवस, 8 मार्च, 2013 के अवसर पर हिन्दोस्तान की कम्युनिस्ट ग़दर पार्टी का बयान

सारी दुनिया में, महिलायें अपनी वर्तमान हालतों के खिलाफ़ विद्रोह कर रही हैं। सभी उपमहाद्वीपों में महिलायें नाजायज़ साम्राज्यवादी जंग और विदेशी सेनाओं द्वारा राष्ट्रों पर कब्जे़ के खिलाफ़ आवाज़ उठा रही हैं। महिलायें आतंकवाद पर जंग की आड़ में, मानव अधिकारों के क्रूर हनन का विरोध कर रही हैं। महिलायें प्रतिदिन अपने ऊपर हो रहे भेद-भाव, अपमान और शारीरिक हिंसा के खिलाफ़ संघर्ष कर रही हैं।

हमारे देश में, महिलायें तथाकथित सुरक्षा बलों द्वारा छेड़े गये आतंक से सबसे बुरी तरह पीड़ित होती हैं। ये सुरक्षा बल सिर्फ शासक वर्ग के सदस्यों को ही सुरक्षा देते हैं। राज्य उपनिवेशवादी और साम्राज्यवादी है। संपूर्ण सुरक्षा ढांचे का मजदूर वर्ग, किसानों और उत्पीड़ित राष्ट्रों व लोगों की महिलाओं व पुरुषों के प्रति शत्रुतापूर्ण रवैया है। कश्मीर, पूर्वोत्तर राज्यों और तथाकथित अशांत इलाकों में केन्द्रीय सुरक्षा बलों द्वारा बलात्कार दैनिक घटना है। पूरे देश में, पुलिस थानों में व जेलों में और तथाकथित पुनर्वास गृहों में भी महिलाओं के साथ दुष्कर्म व बलात्कार होता है। जिन अधिकारियों को महिलाओं की सुरक्षा करनी चाहिए, वे ही महिलाओं पर अत्याचार करते हैं।

यह कोई आश्चर्य की बात नहीं है कि महिलायें अधिक से अधिक संख्या में सड़कों पर उतर रही हैं और शासकों से टक्कर ले रही हैं। वे महिला तथा मनुष्य होने के नाते, उन अधिकारों की मांग कर रही हैं जो उन्हें मिलने चाहिए पर जिनसे वे इस समय वंचित हैं।

नयी पीढ़ी को जन्म देने तथा मानव समाज के पुनरुत्पादन में अपनी निर्णायक भूमिका के कारण, महिलाओं को बच्चे को सुरक्षित जन्म देने और मातृत्व की भूमिका सुरक्षित निभाने में राज्य द्वारा सुनिश्चित मूल सुविधाओं का अधिकार होन चाहिए। पर यह हमारे देश की दसों-लाखों महिलाओं को नहीं मिलता है। महिला मजदूरों को मातृत्व अवकाश का अधिकार होना चाहिए, जिसे इस समय सर्वव्यापक मान्यता भी नहीं प्राप्त है। जहां यह अधिकार घोषित है, वहां लागू नहीं होता है।

आधुनिक समाज में महिलाओं के अधिकारों के व्यापक हनन का मूल कारण क्या है? इस सवाल का जवाब सौ साल पहले, उन मेहनतकश महिलाओं ने दिया था, जिन्होंने 8 मार्च को अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महिला दिवस घोषित किया था। उस समय मेहनतकश महिलाओं ने ऐलान किया था कि उनके ऊपर अत्याचार की मूल वजह पूंजीवाद और पूंजीपतियों का अधिनायकत्व है। उन्होंने ऐलान किया था कि कम्युनिज़्म, जो मजदूर वर्ग के उद्धार की शर्त है, महिलाओं के संपूर्ण उद्धार की भी शर्त है। उन्होंने पूंजीवाद को उखाड़ फेंकने और उसकी जगह पर समाजवाद, यानि कम्युनिज़्म तक पहुंचने के क्रांतिकारी परिवर्तन का प्रथम चरण, स्थापित करने का लक्ष्य तय किया था।

उस ऐतिहासिक निष्कर्ष के बाद, पूंजीवाद ने दुनिया को दो विनाशकारी विश्वयुद्धों में घसीटा है। समाजवाद के लिये मजदूर वर्ग आंदोलन की प्रगति के जवाब में प्रतिक्रियावादी पूंजीपतियों ने फासीवाद का इस्तेमाल किया। सारी दुनिया के पूंजीपतियों ने मिलकर सोवियत संघ के पतन और विनाश को कामयाब किया। उन्होंने उसके बाद यह दावा किया कि माक्र्सवाद अब विधि मान्य नहीं है, और महिला आंदोलन पर उत्तर-आधुनिकतावाद थोपने का प्रयास किया। यह दावा करके कि पूंजीवादी अर्थव्यवस्था और पूंजीवादी लोकतांत्रिक राज्य का कोई विकल्प नहीं है, उन्होंने एक मुसीबत के बाद दूसरी खड़ी कर दी है। आज अमरीका की अगुवाई में साम्राज्यवादी राज्य बड़े पैमाने पर आतंक और नाजायज़ कब्जाकारी जंग फैलाने और स्वतंत्र राज्यों को फिर से उपनिवेश बनाने में सबसे आगे है।

इस पूरे ऐतिहासिक अनुभव से हम अवश्य ही इस निष्कर्ष पर पहुंचते हैं कि महिलाओं के अधिकारों के हनन को खत्म करने के लिये पूंजीवाद का तख्तापलट करना जरूरी शर्त है। हम अभी भी साम्राज्यवाद और श्रमजीवी क्रांति के युग से गुजर रहे हैं। हमें अब तक के वर्ग संघर्ष के अनुभव से सीखकर, आज के हालातों के उपयुक्त, क्रांति के सिद्धांत और कार्यनीति को विकसित करना होगा।

दुनिया के इजारेदार पूंजीपतियों द्वारा नियंत्रित मीडिया की पूरी प्रचार मशीनरी का इस्तेमाल करके, महिलाओं को इन अनिवार्य निष्कर्षों पर पहुंचने से रोका जाता है।

संयुक्त राष्ट्र संघ का जो भी संस्थान हिन्दोस्तान में काम कर रहा है, वह महिलाओं के लिये तथाकथित ”सुरक्षित स्थान“ बनाने पर पैसे लगा रहा है। महिलाओं की सुरक्षा को अलग करके सबसे अधिक प्राथमिकता का मुद्दा बना दिया गया है, जैसे कि महिलाओं के अत्याचार के स्रोत से टक्कर लिये बिना, उसे हल किया जा सकता है।

विश्व बैंक ने अपने आगामी वैश्विक सम्मेलन में चर्चा के लिये यह सवाल रखा है: “दक्षिण एशिया में लिंग-आधारित हिंसा को मिटाने के लिये क्या करना होगा?“

लिंग-आधारित हिंसा सिर्फ दक्षिण एशिया तक सीमित नहीं है। यह एक विश्वव्यापी समस्या है। इसका स्रोत शोषक और परजीवी पूंजीवादी-साम्राज्यवादी व्यवस्था में है, जिसमें मेहनतकश जनसमुदाय को दबाये रखने के लिये तरह-तरह की हिंसा का प्रयोग किया जाता है। अतः असली सवाल यह है कि: पूंजीवाद को खत्म करने और सामाजिक प्रगति का रास्ता खोलने के लिये क्या करना होगा?

पिछले साल दिसंबर में जब दिल्ली में लोगों ने भारी संख्या में विरोध प्रदर्शन किये थे, तो हमारे देश के शासक वर्ग के नेताओं ने पहले तो प्रदर्शनकारियों पर कीचड़ उछाला, उन्हें “लिपी-पुती और रंग चढ़ायी हुई महिलायें“ कहा था। सड़कों पर प्रदर्शन कर रही महिलाओं को मीडिया में तथाकथित मध्यम वर्गीय  महिलायें बताया गया। वास्तव में, उनमें अधिकतम मजदूर वर्ग की महिलायें व छात्रा-नौजवान थीं। यह भी सच है कि इन प्रदर्शनों में पुरुषों और महिलाओं, दोनों ने भाग लिया।

इस समय, मनमोहन सिंह सरकार महिलाओं के खिलाफ़ हिंसा के मुद्दे को हल करने का काफी दिखावा कर रही है। जस्टिस वर्मा आयोग द्वारा दी गई सिफारिशों के बाद, बलात्कार के लिय सज़ा को और कड़ी करने के लिये एक अध्यादेश पास किया गया है। वित्त मंत्री चिदंबरम ने “देश को महिलाओं के लिये ज्यादा सुरक्षित बनाने“ के लिए, 1000 करोड़ रुपये के एक “निर्भया“ कोष की स्थापना की घोषणा की है।

हमारे देश में महिलाओं की सुरक्षा की कमी इसलिए नहीं है कि यहां पुलिस कर्मियों की कमी है या सुरक्षा पर बहुत कम पैसा खर्चा जाता है। समस्या राज्य के वर्ग चरित्र में है। वर्तमान राज्य उपनिवेशवादी और साम्राज्यवादी चरित्र का है। वह पूंजीपति वर्ग की सेवा करता है। पुलिस उपनिवेशवादी युग की दंड संहिता को लागू करने में प्रशिक्षित हैं, जिसका मकसद है शासक विशेष वर्ग को छोड़कर, सभी स्त्रियों व पुरुषों को कुचलना। इसी तंत्र को और मजबूत करने से लोगों का दमन और तेज़ होगा।

वित्त मंत्री चिदंबरम ने अपने बजट भाषण में एक सर्व-महिला बैंक बनाने का भी वादा किया, जो व्यक्तिगत महिलाओं और सामूहिक करोबारों को पैसा उधार में देगा। यह पूंजीपति वर्ग की चतुर साज़िश है, जिसका उद्देश्य है अधिक से अधिक महिलाओं को बैंकों के उधारों का शिकार बनाना। इसका उद्देश्य है मेहनतकश महिलाओं की कठिनाई से की गई बचत के धन को लूटने में बैंको ंके क्षेत्र को और विस्तृत करना। आंध्र प्रदेश में हजारों ऐसे महिला स्व-सहायता समूह हैं जो आज भारी कर्जे में फंसे हुये हैं। सच तो यह है कि बैंकों के कर्जे से चलने वाले छोटे कारोबार वर्तमान पूंजीवादी बाजार में, विशाल इजारेदार कंपनियों के वर्चस्व के कारण, ज्यादा देर तक जिंदा नहीं रह सकते।

शासक वर्ग हमें अपने मुख्य निशाने से गुमराह करने के लिए और हमें बुद्धू बनाने के लिये, आयोग बिठाने, कानून बदलने और विशेष कार्यक्रम शुरू करने की पुरानी, परखी हुई तरकीबों का सहारा ले रहा है। हम मजदूरों, किसानों, महिलाओं और नौजवानों को इनसे गुमराह नहीं होना चाहिए। हमें अपना निशाना पूंजीवादी व्यवस्था पर बनाये रखना चाहिए, जिसकी हिफाज़त उपनिवेशवादी प्रकार का पूंजीवादी राज्य करता है और जिसका प्रशासन प्रतिनिधित्ववादी लोकतंत्र की अपराधपूर्ण प्रक्रिया के ज़रिये किया जाता है।

साम्राज्यवाद के वर्तमान पड़ाव में, पूंजीवाद शोषण और लूट, हमलों, कब्जाकारी जंग और दुनिया को साम्राज्यवादियों के आपस-बीच फिर से बांटने के जंग की वैश्विक व्यवस्था है। यह एक अत्यंत शोषक और परजीवी सामाजिक व्यवस्था है। यह रोजी-रोटी की बेहद असुरक्षा और असहनीय गरीबी के साथ-साथ, मेहनतकश जनसमुदाय पर अनंत हिंसा और आतंक का स्रोत है।

तीव्र वैश्विक संकट की हालतों के चलते, हिन्दोस्तान में पूंजीवाद, दूसरे देशों की तुलना में, काफी तेज़ी से बढ़ता रहा है। इसकी वजह से हमारे समाज में, खासतौर पर चंद शोषकों और शोषित मजदूर-किसान जनसमुदाय के बीच, वर्ग अंतर्विरोध तीक्ष्ण हो रहे हैं।

पूंजीपतियों के हमलावर अग्रसर और उदारीकरण व निजीकरण के ज़रिये भूमंडलीकरण के कार्यक्रम के पीछे पूंजीवाद प्रेरक शक्ति है। इस कार्यक्रम का उद्देश्य है हिन्दोस्तान को वैश्विक साम्राज्यवादी ताकतों के विशिष्ठ गिरोह में दाखिल कराना।

हमारे देश की पूंजीवादी अर्थव्यवस्था एक ध्रुव पर बेशुमार दौलत पैदा करती है, जो सिर्फ कुछ गिने-चुने हाथों में केंद्रित है। यह दौलत देश के मजदूरों के शोषण तथा किसानों, जन-जातियों और पूरे राष्ट्रों व राष्ट्रीयताओं की भूमी और कुदरती संसाधनों की लूट के जरिये पैदा होती है। टाटा, अंबानी, मित्तल और दूसरे इजारेदार घरानों की अगुवाई में पूंजीपति वर्ग मजदूरों और किसानों के श्रम से उत्पन्न दौलत को अपनी जेब में डाल लेता है। आजकल हमारे इजारेदार पूंजीपति दूसरे देशों को लूटने के लिये, अधिक से अधिक पूंजी का विदेशों में निर्यात कर रहे हैं। देश और विदेश में अधिक से अधिक लूट की इस आर्थिक व्यवस्था की हिफाज़त इस राज्य तंत्र द्वारा की जाती है।

ऐसी व्यवस्था में, जिसमें सब कुछ अति अमीर अल्पसंख्यक तबके के अधिकतम मुनाफों का स्रोत बन जाता है, महिलाओं का शोषण और दमन होना अनिवार्य है। महिलाओं का शोषण मजदूर बतौर, किसान बतौर और महिला बतौर होता है। महिलायें यौन आनंद की वस्तुएं मानी जाती हैं। बलात्कार पीड़ितों को अशुभ मानकर समाज से अलग रखा जाता है। पूंजीवादी व्यवस्था और उपनिवेशवादी समय से विरासत में प्राप्त राज्य जाति प्रथा और विभिन्न पुरानी रीति-रिवाज़ों को जिंदा रखते हैं, जो महिलाओं को अपने मूल अधिकारों से वंचित करते हैं और उनका अति शोषण करते हैं।

दिल्ली में हाल में बिजली के दाम बढ़ाये जाने की आलोचना के जवाब में जाना जाता है कि मुख्यमंत्री शीला दीक्षित ने कहा कि “लोगों को उतना ही उपभोग करना चाहिए जितना खरीदने के लिए उनके पास पैसा है!“  यह शासक पूंजीपति वर्ग और उसके अगुवा राजनीतिक प्रतिनिधियों के दृष्टिकोण को दर्शाता है। वे सोचते हैं कि किसी मजदूर या किसान परिवार को फ्रिज, एयर कंडीशनर या किसी आधुनिक यंत्र का सपना ही नहीं देखना चाहिए। वे सोचते हैं कि जीवन स्तर में प्रगति सिर्फ विशेष अधिकार वाले कुछ विशिष्ट लोगों का अधिकार है, मेहनतकश जनता का नहीं।

राजनीतिक व्यवस्था को इसलिए लोकतांत्रिक कहा जाता है क्योंकि प्रत्येक बालिग व्यक्ति को मतदान का समान अधिकार है। परंतु सिर्फ मतदान के अधिकार से मेहनतकशों को समाज की दिशा तय करने में कोई भूमिका नहीं मिली है। जन समुदाय की बस इतनी ही भूमिका है कि वे पूंजीपति वर्ग की विभिन्न पार्टियों के द्वारा चयनित उम्मीदवारों के बीच में चुन सकते हैं। निहित स्वार्थ वाली पार्टियों की प्रधानता में चलाई जा रही यह राजनीतिक व्यवस्था पूंजीपति वर्ग द्वारा समाज पर अपना मत थोपने का साधन है। मेहनतकश जन समुदाय को फैसले लेने की प्रक्रिया से पूरी तरह बाहर रखा जाता है।

वर्तमान राज्य और राजनीतिक व्यवस्था सिर्फ पूंजीपति वर्ग के लिये लोकतंत्र है। यह मजदूर वर्ग और दूसरे दबे-कुचले वर्गों पर बेरहम हुक्मशाही है, उनके अधिकारों का घोर हनन है।

आजकल कांग्रेस पार्टी और भाजपा के नेता महिलाओं की सुरक्षा के बारे में बहुत चिंतित होने का दिखावा कर रहे हैं। पूंजीपतियों की ये पार्टियां अपने तंग राजनीतिक हितों के लिये, संगठित बाहुबल के प्रमुख प्रश्रयदाता हैं। उनकी अपनी-अपनी अनौपचारिक गुंडा फौज है जो हमारे देश में राजनीति के अपराधीकरण की मुख्य प्रेरक हैं। वे लोकतंत्र की कसम खाती हैं पर पूंजीपतियों और शोषक, परजीवी आर्थिक व्यवस्था की हिफाज़ में काम करती हैं।

समाज का अजेंडा और दिशा तय करने के लिये मेहनतकश पुरुषों व महिलाओं को अपने हाथ में राजनीतिक सत्ता की जरूरत है। वर्तमान पुराने, उपनिवेशी, पूंजीवादी गणराज्य की जगह पर मजदूरों और किसानों के शासन का आधुनिक लोकतांत्रिक राज्य स्थापित करना होगा।

हमें एक ऐसा राज्य चाहिए जो समाज को सभी पुराने, दमनकारी संबंधों से मुक्त करायेगा - सामंती अवशेषों, जाति प्रथा और पूंजीवादी शोषण व साम्राज्यवादी लूट समेत संपूर्ण उपनिवेशवादी विरासत को मिटायेगा। उस राज्य को जाति, लिंग, धार्मिक विचार या किसी और मुद्दे पर भेदभाव किये बिना, प्रत्येक बालिग नागरिक, प्रत्येक इंसान के अधिकारों को मान्यता देनी होगी व सुरक्षा देनी होगी। उसे लोगों के हाथ में संप्रभुता दिलानी होगी।

फौरी तौर पर, हमें अपनी ताकत और सामूहिक लड़ाकू क्षमता पर निर्भर होकर, महिलाओं के अधिकारों की रक्षा करने के लिये संगठित होना होगा। महिलाओं और पुरुषों को एकजुट होकर, सामूहिक तौर पर आत्म रक्षा और पारस्परिक समर्थन संगठित करना होगा, जो कि सबसे विश्वसनीय सुरक्षा है।

संसदीय पार्टियों और उनके द्वारा चलायी जा रही सरकारों, उनकी कमान की सेना और पुलिस, उनके कानूनों की हिफाजत करने वाली न्यायपालिका - इनमें से किसी पर भी महिलाओं की सुरक्षा या उद्धार के लिये हम निर्भर नहीं हो सकते। ये संस्थान सिर्फ पूंजीपति वर्ग के प्रति जिम्मेदार हैं।

महिलाओं को खुद की तथा अपने अधिकारों की रक्षा करने के लिए, महिला बतौर, मजदूर वर्ग और मेहनतकश बतौर, संगठित होना होगा। हम मेहनतकश महिलाओं और पुरुषों, छात्राओं व छात्रों को अपने काम के स्थानों में, स्कूल-कालेज परिसरों और रिहायशी इलाकों में अपनी समितियां बनानी चाहिए। अपने अधिकारों के लिये संघर्ष करने के दौरान, हमें समाज के हुक्मरान बनने की तैयारी करनी होगी।

अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महिला दिवस 2013 के अवसर पर, हिन्दोस्तान की कम्युनिस्ट ग़दर पार्टी सभी महिलाओं से आह्वान करती है कि उदारीकरण और निजीकरण के मजदूर-विरोधी, जन-विरोधी और राष्ट्र-विरोधी कार्यक्रम को तुरंत रोकने के लिये एकजुट होकर संघर्ष करें!

हिन्दोस्तान के नव निर्माण के लिये, लोगों को संप्रभुता दिलाने वाले आधुनिक लोकतांत्रिक राज्य के निर्माण के लिये, हम एकजुट होकर संघर्ष करें! लोकतांत्रिक, उपनिवेशवाद-विरोधी, सामंतवाद-विरोधी और साम्राज्यवाद-विरोधी संघर्ष की फतह की शर्त बतौर पूंजीवाद को उखाड़ फेंकने के लिये हम एकजुट हों! क्रांति के ज़रिये समाजवाद का निर्माण करने के लिये हम एकजुट हो जायें!

सामाजिक प्रगति के लिये लड़ने पर वचनबद्ध सभी महिलाओं से हम आह्वान करते हैं कि हिन्दोस्तान की कम्युनिस्ट ग़दर पार्टी में शामिल हों और मजदूर वर्ग के नेतृत्व को मजबूत करने तथा कम्युनिज़्म के लिये क्रांतिकारी आंदोलन को मजबूत करने के लिये आगे आयें!

Greeting Message of the Comintern (SH)

 

On the occasion of the 102nd International Women's Day and the 2nd Anniversary of the founding of the Communist Women's International, the Comintern (SH) sends militant, world revolutionary greetings to all women in the world.

We salute all those who support the women's movement in its just struggle against the increased exploitation and oppression caused by the current crisis of world capitalism.



The horrific rape on 16 December 2012, in India, has given rise to mass protests not only in the own country but all over the world. This shows that the revolutionary liberation movement of women is growing on a global scale and gaining strength.

Neither the Indian ruling class, nor the world bourgeoisie are able to stop the violence against women. On the contrary, the rulers of the world conceal these atrocities, protect the perpetrators and let the victims in the lurch. It's not just the personal fate of an individual woman, but with her, millions of women around the world share the same fate.

It is capitalism itself that causes all violent treatments of women, their double exploitation and oppression.

The ruling classes are unable to solve the issue of women, in particular, as they are also incapable of solving the social question, in general.

Capitalist private property is ultimately the root of sexual slavery and slavery of classes.

Therefore, the liberation of women is closely linked to the abolition of private ownership of the means of production and their transformation into social property.

Governments and institutions promised reforms to appease the anger of women. There are fine words, but no actions follow, and the protest of women grew even more. There is also growing of fascism and reaction, which is especially aimed against the revolutionary women.

The bourgeoisie does not only split the proletarian class to maintain her system of exploitation and oppression, but also splits the women.

So two women's movements emerged in the world.

The bourgeois-/petty-bourgeois women's movement and the proletarian women's movement - the reformist-revisionist one and a revolutionary, communist one.

The bourgeois and petty bourgeois women's movement is limited to a maximum of demands to "eliminate" the extreme excesses of the oppression and exploitation of women (against stoning, mutilation, democratic rights etc.). However, all these women movements defend the current capitalist ssystem - more or less.
The proletarian women's movement are not against reforms. In the contrary. However the struggle for reforms is subordinated under the struggle for the revolution.
The proletarian women's movement is fundamentally different from the bourgeois and petty bourgeois women's movement - especially the fact that we want to eliminate the inevitability of exploitation and oppression of women, side by side with the exploited and oppressed men - through the overthrow of the bourgeoisie and the establishment of the rule of the proletariat .

The inevitability of oppression and exploitation of women can only be eliminated by means of the removal of the inevitability of capitalism - that is, by the dictatorship of the world proletariat and the establishment of world socialism. Only in the world communism the woman is free.

For the communist women's movement, the world socialist revolution is the only way to liberate all women around the world.

Without world-revolutionary class struggle of the proletariat, there is no liberation of women. And without the participation of women in the destruction of world capitalism, there is no world socialism and world communism.

On the occasion of Women's Day, we want to remember all the women who have lost their life in the fight for freedom and socialism. Their blood has not been shed in vain. The revolutionary women's movement will only leave the battlefield, even if the last woman has been liberated on this world - forever.



Women - rise up!

Free yourself from the shackles of

Sex-slavery - and class slavery!

Fight for communism!




Long live the 8th March - the International Women's Day!

Long live the proletarian internationalism of the women!

Long live the world communist women's movement!

Long live the revolutionary struggle of women against hunger, war and fascism!

Long live the great achievements of socialist women in the Soviet Union and Albania!

Long live the world socialist revolution!

Long live the Communist Women's International (Stalinist-Hoxhaists)!

remark:

 

On occasion of this 8th of March, we open two new websites of the Communist Women's International (SH)

 

in Russian language

and in

Albanian language

 

 

This year there are two important anniversaries, closely related to the revolutionary proletarian women's movement:

First

20th of June, 1933

The 80th Death Day of Clara Zetkin.

For this, the Comintern (SH) will publish in many languages ​​of the world a

 

"Clara Zetkin website".



Second

13th of August, 1913

The 100th Death Day of August Bebel.

In 1902, he wrote his famous book "The Woman and Socialism". This book will be published in several languages.

We will also publish in different languages a

 

"August Bebel Website".

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long live the victory of the Indian socialist revolution for the overthrow of the imperialist and fascist Indian state, for the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat !

Proletarian class struggle and fight for the liberation of women are inextricably linked in the struggle for the socialist world revolution.

 

December 2012 / January 2013

A state that does not protect but abuses women has no right to exist!

 

 

 


 

University, school students and working class youth are out in the streets of the national capital asking for justice from a political system and its ruling class that has secured its own selfish interest at the expense of the vast majority.

After 65 years of becoming an independent country that held the promise of a subject people being able to build a new society where the rights of all people would be respected, people are out on the streets demanding the most basic right for half the population – the right to dignity for women.

The response of the government following the horrific rape of a young woman and assault on her and her friend in a Delhi bus on December 16th reflects the utter callousness of the Indian ruling class towards the people. In the first instance, the incident did not provoke any official response. However, what the government did not anticipate was the level of public protests that this criminal act evoked from a wide section of the youth population. Within a day of the crime being reported, the capital was shaken by a storm of protests that spread to other cities across the country. In Delhi, the demonstrators assembled at India Gate, marched up Rajpath to Rashtrapati Bhavan and demonstrated in front of Sonia Gandhi’s house.

What was the response of the government then? They attacked the protestors, lathi charged them and sought to discourage them with water cannons and teargas. Its chief concerns were that the demonstrators should not march on to the Presidential complex or that the visiting Russian President should not hear about this terrible crime against two young people right here in the capital city! On the 5th day of the protests, lumpen hoodlums were deliberately sent in among the protestors to provoke the police and damage vehicles and resort to violence. This was just what the police were waiting for and they unleashed their full fury on many innocent demonstrators.

However, this has not quelled the spirit of the youth. They are determined to continue their protests till such time as they see that the government is really going to take some steps to secure the city for women. The people, especially the youth, are not willing to accept any placating by the Prime Minister, Delhi Chief Minister or the Home Minister. They are not willing to listen to promises which they know from their own experience are empty platitudes. They are clearly rejecting moves of any political party to hijack the agitation.

There is no dearth of laws in our country to punish those guilty of sexual offenses. But the reality is that very few criminals have been indicted or even tried. In Delhi as in other cities and towns across India, criminal gangs and lumpen elements freely roam around and terrorise people. They operate with impunity because they know that they will not be pulled up and punished by the law; the existing system needs such criminals to do the bidding of the rich and powerful – whether it is to secure votes for the political parties, evict people from their homes for the slum lords and land mafia, attack striking workers on behalf of the capitalists, or participate in communal genocides, etc.  Without the knowledge of the police and the protection of the politically powerful, these criminal hoodlums cannot exist. 

Within this context, women are especially vulnerable to being targeted. Indian society has not experienced the social revolution that would have made a break with its medieval past. Women continue to be oppressed and humiliated by the backward social customs still prevailing in society, including the caste system and backward religious customs. Through colonial times when capitalism was developing and in contemporary times with further development of capitalism, the bourgeoisie found it suitable to preserve some of the medieval practices of caste and discrimination against women in order to better carry out the exploitation of all the people.

Under capitalism, patriarchy has continued to deny women their rightful place and they are among the most discriminated against in a vastly unequal society. They are repeatedly told that they have to “know their place.” They are abused and attacked for allegedly stepping out of line.  They do not have a say even in their own personal lives and they are blamed for all the crimes committed against them! At the same time, under the capitalist system, young girls and boys are abused for sexual gratification. It is no wonder then that women cannot feel safe even in our capital city.

When the Indian ruling classes claim that they are at the head of a modern society, they are talking of a very limited sphere of techno-industrial development, the financial markets and commercial operations that enable them to maximize their returns on investment. They are not concerned with the well-being and dignity of human beings; they are least concerned about the status of women.

A society that allows such assaults on women and keeps her enslaved cannot offer any dignity for men either. How far a society has advanced depends very much on how emancipated women are. If society cannot guarantee the safety and dignity of women, and in fact condones and perpetuates violence against them, then this society must be fundamentally transformed!  Together, all of us who are outraged by the growing incidence of violence against women must work for a new system where the human rights of all are guaranteed, and even one such incident will not be tolerated. Women have to be in the forefront of this struggle, because the emancipation of women depends upon the emancipation of society as a whole. This is the vision that we have to fight for – a society where women and men are respected equally and all human beings can live with dignity.

Letter from a comrade of Portugal

 

 I wish to send greetings to all comrades around the world on this International Women's day! The Comintern (SH) is the only organization which truly struggles in favor of women's emancipation, because Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the only authentically revolutionary and proletarian ideology which is able to liberate women from the millenarian chains with which the exploiting classes have opressed them throughout history. 
In what respects to the fake "feminist movements", they are nothing more than scapegoats fabricated by the reactionary bourgeosie to mislead women, trying to give them the false impression that the epoch of male domination has gone and that under capitalism they are "free". This is totally false. Proletarian women continue to be harshly opressed and discriminated, the wage differentials between working men and working women continue to be enormous. In some cases, they are even greater that they had been decades ago. Therefore, capitalism will never liberate women because their discrimination and inferiorization maximizes the profits of the bourgeosie. The only way to the liberation of women is the world socialist revolution and the world proletarian dictatorship! Everything else is reactionary, anti-communist and serves only to keep working women in bondage.

Other of the tactics used by the exploiting classes is to praise a few bourgeois and reactionary women. This happens in the economic and political field, where pro-capitalist women are used as "ideological models" that all other women should follow. However, all these treacherous tactics will fail. It is to us, Communist women, that the future belongs.

8th of March 2012

Greeting Message of the Comintern (SH)

On occasion of the 101st International Women's Day, the Comintern (SH) sends world revolutionary greetings to all revolutionary women all over the world and to all those people who support their liberation struggle.

The Comintern (SH) struggles for the following 5 fundamental aims:


1.


In all its social, political, economic and cultural position, Men and Women are globally equal.
Any discrimination or privilege of gender is contrary to the equality of Men and Women

2. 

Equal pay for equal work - all over the world - without exception. 
Any discrimination or any privilege of gender in the workplace, no matter in sections of production or service-sectors etc., … in the whole economic life of society - the principle of equality between Men and Women is valid and applies mutatis mutandis. 


3. 


The global economic subjugation of wage-labor of women by the world capital – this is the main cause of most forms of social misery, physical and mental exploitation and political oppression of the working women, around the world. The economic emancipation of working women is therefore essential basis of the political movement of working women 's liberation. Without the abolition of private ownership of the means of production – there is no abolition of wage-slavery of women, and without abolition of wage-slavery there is no social and political liberation of the female world-proletariat. 


4. 

The gendered slavery, the contradiction and competition between “him” and “her”, especially the division of women and men in the world labor market, must be fought and overcome – finally through the removal of the inevitability of the contradiction between global wage-labour and capital . 

“He” and “She” belong to the same proletarian class, and together they form the army of the world proletariat against the world bourgeoisie. We fight, therefore, for the proletarian unity of women and men , for their mutual solidarity and support in their commonly organized class-struggle against the capitalists. The victory of the proletariat is based on the unity of proletarian women and men. Neither the proletarian women nor the proletarian men are capable to abolish capitalist wage slavery and gendered slavery on their own initiative. The matter of communism is a common matter of both, women and men.


5. 


The division of the world proletariat by the capitalist countries, the division of the proletarian women and the proletarian men by national barriers, by national chauvinism, racism, etc. must also be fought and overcome on the one hand and such as the misogynistic world-imperialistic cosmopolitanism on the other hand. 


The C W I (SH) must turn its attention to the women of the working emigrants because they are at most underprivileged in relation to the male emigrants and moreover to the local proletarian workers. In the spirit of proletarian internationalism, the emigrant proletarians and the local proletariat must unite and organize themselves commonly to fight and overcome their division.
For the equality of women-emigrants ! 

The emancipation of women is neither a local nor a national problem but an international social problem and therefore, this problem can be solved only by the world socialist revolution !

We fight for the collection, education and organization of the female world proletariat under the red banner of the world socialist revolution! 

 

Comrade Enver Hoxha:

"The Party and the working dass should measure the advance toward the complete construction of socialist society with the deepening and progress of the
women's revolution within our proletarian revolution. If the women lag behind, then the revolution marks time."

 

Dear comrades,

the Communist Women 's - International cannot grow as a powerful mass-organisation within a sole year. We have to make great efforts for the successful implementation of this task. However, in the first year of its existence, we made progress in propagating the necessity of the Communist Women's International for the pupose to centralize the global actions of communist women.

The emancipation of the working class must be the act of the workers themselves“

Communist International - July 8, 1921

There is no emancipation of the working class without the emancipation of the working women.

The only path of the emancipation of women is the participation at the proletarian socialist world revolution !"

Communist International (Stalinist-Hoxhaists) - March 8, 2012


LONG LIVE THE 

COMMUNIST WOMEN 'S - INTERNATIONAL 
(Stalinist-Hoxhaists)  !

100th World Women 's Day

 

Today the

(Stalinist-Hoxhaists)

 

is founded !

 

 

 

 

The only path of the emancipation of women is the participation at the proletarian socialist world revolution !




C W I (S H) 

Founding declaration

8 March 2011 

 

 

 

 

Today we celebrate the 100th International Women 's Day together with our foundation ! 



Proletarian, internationalist militant greetings to all exploited and oppressed women of this world!

 
The emancipation of women can only be the collective work of the united women of the world! 


World-proletarian women - unite women of all countries for the socialist world revolution! 

 

On the International Women 's Day the proletarian women all over the world raise their collective voice against their exploitation and oppression! 
On this particular 100th World Women 's Day the proletarian women begin to organize their world-revolutionary global fight for the overthrow of world capitalism with the goal of world communism, and thus the final liberation of women. 
 The common world-revolutionary organization of proletarian women of all countries is the 
COMMUNIST WOMEN'S INTERNATIONAL (SH) 


On 27 August, 1910 - headed by Clara Zetkin and through her initiative - the Second International Conference of Women in Copenhagen declares World Women 's Day on the 8th March, annually - in memory of the brave proletarian women of an New York cotton factory, who were murdered by the police on 8 March 1908 - during their strike for equal pay and for the 10-hour day. 

1917/18, the international socialist women welcome enthusiastically the October Revolution of the Bolsheviks and join Lenin. Not until communist guiding principles and objectives, not until creating a firmly established, Bolshevik-organized unit, the socialist women 's movement could be transformed into the communist women 's world movement - at the initiative of Comrade Lenin. So far the world socialist women 's movement could not organize itself under conditions of the loose structure of the Second International. Under pressure from the socialist women the opportunist leaders of the Second International were forced to support the organized internationalist struggle for the liberation of women. While the leaders of the Second International - with their "homeland-defense" - openly went over to the camp of the bourgeoisie in 1914, the women of the Second International called vehemently for the revolutionary struggle against the imperialist war. On occasion of the Third International Conference on Women - held in Berlin- the Socialist women organized an international anti-war meeting of the women, and they adopted a resolution against the imperialist war. The poster – shown above – is made in 1914 for the purpose of the international anti-war-meeting in Berlin. It expresses and symbolizes not only the struggle of the socialist women against imperialist war.

The socialist women have also fought on the front line against the betrayal of socialism, against opportunism and revisionism. For us Stalinist-Hoxhaist women it is a great honor and commitment, to raise the banner of the World Women 's Day as members of the Communist Women 's International (Stalinist-Hoxhaists) and transform the poster of 1914 as our emblem of the C W I (SH). 

 It is the foundation of the Communist International which was the world-historical starting point of the revolutionary Communist Women 's World Movement: 

"The Communist International can only fulfill its tasks, can only secure the final victory of the world proletariat and the abolition of the capitalist system through the closely related common struggle of women and men of the working class. The dictatorship of the proletariat can only be lively and active, can only be achieved and maintained by the participation of women of the working-class" 
(See Minutes from March 2 to March 19, 1919, Hamburg 1921). 

 

The Communist Women 's International (Stalinist-Hoxhaists) is in the tradition of the glorious Communist International of Lenin and Stalin and in its revolutionary struggle to organize the liberation of women - on a global scale. 

On 8 July 1921 the Comintern unanimously adopted the "Resolution on the forms and methods of communist work among the women."

 It states: 

The Second International Conference of Communist women taking place in Moscow therefore calls upon the Communist Parties everywhere to carry out the resolution and the decision of the III International, take seriously the organisation of the broad masses of working women for revolutionary struggle and revolutionary construction, engage in propaganda and agitation among the female proletariat to spread Communist ideas, and draw these women into the Communist Party, thereby deepening and developing their will and ability to be active and to fight.”

…..

Every Party in the III International must organise sections attached to their Party Committees, sections for work amongst women, which must be headed by a Committee member. Departments for work among women are not special organisations within the Communist Parties; their role is specific – to mobilise and educate the broadest masses of working women to struggle for the dictatorship of the proletariat and for a Communist society. The departments for work among women carry out all their work under the leadership of the Party, but their forms and methods of work have to be sufficiently flexible to adapt themselves to the specificities of the position of women in the family and in society. The work of these departments is described in detail in the theses passed by the conference.

The departments for work among women must always be conscious of their dual task which is:

1 to inspire in the female proletarian masses a high level of class consciousness and a firm commitment to engage in the revolutionary class struggle, the struggle of all humiliated and oppressed people against the bourgeoisie, and the struggle for communism;

2 after the victory of the proletarian revolution, to involve them in a conscious and dedicated way in the joint work needed to build a Communist society.

Departments for work among women must remember that their job involves more than just verbal and written agitation and propaganda. Their main concern is to carry out agitation through action – the most effective method at their disposal – and, in all the capitalist countries, to encourage working women to take an active part in all the actions and struggles of the revolutionary proletariat, in strikes, street demonstrations and armed uprisings, while in Soviet countries they must give working women an active part to play in all spheres of Communist construction.”


The C W I (SH) is not a "Communist International of the Women", which is opposed to the Comintern (SH) as the "Communist International of the Men".
The C W I (SH) is no special organization which would separate women from the world proletariat. In the contrary, it is an organization which helps women to join the revolutionary struggle as a strong detachment of the gigantic army of the international proletariat. The Comintern (SH) facilitates the self-organization of the communist women in the world and support them in the same way as the Communist parties in the individual countries support their own women 's sections. 

The C W I (SH) is therefore an integral detachment and self-organized part of the Comintern (SH).

In words and deeds the C W I (SH) participates leading work of the Comintern (SH), directly and immediately ( see: Clara Zetkin – the leader of the communist women – was elected member of the leading ECCI). 

The C W I (SH) cooperates with the women 's sections of the Communist parties of individual countries.


Furthermore, the C W I (SH) instructs all mass organizations concerning all matters of the women, as – for example – within the Red International of the Labour Unions



On this solid, organizational and global basis, women all over the world unfold their consciousness of proletarian internationalism and to create their full force in support of the socialist world revolution and thus for the purpose of their own liberation. 

The C W I (SH) will meet its duties under the dictatorship of the world-proletariat and make a valuable contribution to the development of world socialism. 

The C W I (SH) has played its role only when the goal of a classless world society is achieved, only then the woman is truly and finally liberated. 


The 5 key-principles of the C W I (SH)  concerning
global gender equality, are: 

1.


In all its social, political, economic and cultural position, Men and Women are globally equal.
Any discrimination or privilege of gender is contrary to the equality of Men and Women. 


2. 

 Equal pay for equal work - all over the world - without exception. 
Any discrimination or any privilege of gender in the workplace, no matter in sections of production or service-sectors etc., … in the whole economic life of society - the principle of equality between Men and Women is valid and applies mutatis mutandis. 


3. 


 The global economic subjugation of wage-labor of women by the world capital – this is the main cause of most forms of social misery, physical and mental exploitation and political oppression of the working women, around the world. The economic emancipation of working women is therefore essential basis of the political movement of working women 's liberation. Without the abolition of private ownership of the means of production – there is no abolition of wage-slavery of women, and without abolition of wage-slavery there is no social and political liberation of the female world-proletariat. 


4. 

The gendered slavery, the contradiction and competition between “him” and “her”, especially the division of women and men in the world labor market, must be fought and overcome – finally through the removal of the inevitability of the contradiction between global wage-labour and capital . 

“He” and “She” belong to the same proletarian class, and together they form the army of the world proletariat against the world bourgeoisie. We fight, therefore, for the proletarian unity of women and men , for their mutual solidarity and support in their commonly organized class-struggle against the capitalists. The victory of the proletariat is based on the unity of proletarian women and men. Neither the proletarian women nor the proletarian men are capable to abolish capitalist wage slavery and gendered slavery on their own initiative. 

The matter of communism is a common matter of both, women and men.


5. 


 The division of the world proletariat by the capitalist countries, the division of the proletarian women and the proletarian men by national barriers, by national chauvinism, racism, etc. must also be fought and overcome on the one hand and such as the misogynistic world-imperialistic cosmopolitanism on the other hand. 




The C W I (SH) must turn its attention to the women of the working emigrants because they are at most underprivileged in relation to the male emigrants and moreover to the local proletarian workers. In the spirit of proletarian internationalism, the emigrant proletarians and the local proletariat must unite and organize themselves commonly to fight and overcome their division. 


 For the equality of women-emigrants ! 

The emancipation of women is neither a local nor a national problem but an international social problem and therefore, this problem can be solved only by the world socialist revolution:

 

Workers of the world - unite

 World-proletariat - unite all countries !

 

These two slogans of the Comintern (SH) belong together and they are also valid in the global struggle for the liberation of women. 


 

The exploitation and oppression of men and women through men and women can be finally abolished not before the era of world communism. The full equality between men and women can be reached only in world communism. 



Just as the equivalence of physical and intellectual labor, between city and country, etc., the equality of men and women is still not fully realizable in the period of world socialism. 
But the world socialism is the necessary transition-period of the liberation struggle of women from oppression and exploitation, in the period of the transition of the capitalist class society to a classless society of world communism. 

 

The struggle for the emancipation of women - as opposed to bourgeois and petty-bourgeois "feminist movement" - is inseparable part of the world proletarian movement. Proletarian class struggle and fight for the liberation of women are inextricably linked in the struggle for the socialist world revolution, in national liberation struggles, in anti-imperialist struggles, or even in daily struggles for better living-conditions, in all forms of class-struggle – the struggle for the liberation of the women is always indispensable part of it.
The path of reformism is a bourgeois illusion. Only by violent revolution, the “women 's question” is solved. The solution of women 's question is part of the solution of the whole social question, is subordinated and serving the socialist world-revolution. The question of reforms is subordinated under the question of revolution. 
The world-revolutionary women 's movement develops its own charactaristic forms of class-struggle and it is an indispensable lever for the overthrow of world capitalism, for the victory of the socialist world revolution and the establishment of the dictatorship of the world proletariat. 
The victory of the world-proletarian revolution is only possible on an equal footing female leadership of the world-proletariat. 
In the era of world socialism the proletarian men and women share commonly their role of their world 's class-hegemony. 

The world-hegemony of the proletariat is based on the unity and solidarity, on the equal rights and duties of proletarian men and women. 
The world-dictatorship of the proletariat is established, consolidated and defended by both the proletarian women and men. 

The women of the Paris Commune of 1871, the women of the October Revolution of 1917 in Russia, the socialist women of the Soviet Union and Albania, they have all made the greatest sacrifices and contribution to the liberation of women in the world. They have realized world-historical achievements of their equality with men by means of the dictatorship of the proletariat. 

On this solid ground the world-proletarian will achieve equality with men by means of the world-dictatorship of the proletariat – on a global scale.

 

We base our world-Bolshevist work on the experience of socialist countries in which there was the dictatorship of the proletariat, on the experience of the Soviet Union of Lenin and Stalin and the experience of socialist Albania's Enver Hoxha. There, the equality of men and women was not only well established in the Constitution. There were practically achieved all the facilities and measures for the free development of women in all fields, there was a secured and comprehensive social welfare for mother and child. 

 

Through the restoration of capitalism the great achievements of the socialist women were destroyed, but they can never be eternized. The Stalinist-Hoxhaist women shall always care about the propagation of these historical achievements of the liberated socialist women and their heroic role in the history of socialism in their country. With the era of world-socialism we shall raise higher and higher the banner of women 's achievements in the best interest of the world 's society.

 

It is necessary to combat revisionism and neo-revisionism and all its hues and shades.

We struggle against bourgeois and petty-bourgeois women 's politics – even in the bourgeois and petty-bourgeois women 's organizations as Lenin told us . We struggle against reformist, revisionist, anarchist, syndicalist, Trotzkyite, Maoist and all kinds of alleged „communists“ who like to throw us Communist women off the course of the socialist world revolution. However, this does not mean to be sectarian. Bearing in mind the 12 Stalinist rules of Bolshevization we do not deny action-unities with class-foreign elements, if this will be beneficial for our aims and goals.

 

Basis of the world revolutionary gender politics of the C W I (SH) are the teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism. 

We fight for the collection, education and organization of the female world proletariat under the red banner of the world socialist revolution!

Clara Zetkin

Clara Zetkin was celebrated in both Germany and the Soviet Union before World War II because of her active involvement in the communist movement. She wrote prolifically and preached the virtues of socialism. She concerned herself particularly with women’s needs, arguing that women would respond best to a different form of agitation than that used among men. Zetkin asserted that communism was the only way to respond to women’s concerns as mothers and that only state involvement in domestic life would allow women to be fully emancipated. Women needed freedom from household work and increased training and support to aid them as workers, and Zetkin’s writings centered on these principles.

The Bolshevik Revolution proved to Zetkin that communism rescued women from the oppression of capitalism. The Soviet model showed that women could find protection for themselves and their children through state intervention. In addition, communism provided a female proletariat with increased employment opportunities and training. While bourgeois women’s movements spread through Europe, Zetkin emphasized that true liberation came only through communism. For Zetkin, communism as found in Soviet Russia in the 1920s brought women equality not just in theory but also in practice.

Zetkin’s periodical Die Kommunistische Fraueninternationale (1921-1925) included articles that emphasized the Soviet system for aiding women. These articles supported Zetkin’s belief that communism would benefit women by lightening their burdens. Die Kommunistische Fraueninternationale established a forum in which communist women throughout the world could hear news from movements in countries other than their own. By including discussion of the Soviet model in her periodical, Zetkin sought to convince women of the virtues of joining Soviet Russia in worldwide revolution rather than succumbing to the empty promises of capitalist nations.

Long Live 8th March, the International Women’s Day!

 

We, the men and women of Iran, are ready for the final battle!”

Thousands of greetings and salutations to the struggling and freedom-seeking women of Iran who are fighting the anti-woman Islamic Regime in order to materialise the above slogan.

This year, the heroic women of Iran, welcoming their International Day at a time, when the whole world has been witness to their gallant confrontation with the lackeys of the Imperialist dependent Islamic Republic of Iran. This is a brilliant reality, as the proof of all the struggles and resistance of the majority of the oppressed women in our society against the oppressions and brutality of the regime, following 30 years of non-stop battles against the regime.

It has been said, and truly so, that the oppression of women is the oppression of the society. During the past 30 year rule of the Islamic Republic, our people have experienced this fact in reality. They have clearly seen that, whenever the rulers want to cause fear and terror amongst the people and increase the tempo of suppression, in the first step, they increase the tempo of suppression of women. Therefore, it is no surprise that women from all walks life, from the young students to the ordinary housewives, are fighting selflessly and valiantly in the forefront of all others to put an end to the Islamic Republic. The courageous struggle of these women for the overthrow of this notorious and criminal regime has also defeated the attempts of those reformers who try to limit their struggle to repealing or amending the reactionary Islamic laws against women. Following this path, the women reformers who benefit from saving the Islamic Republic Regime, even disregard one of the most important demands of the Iranian women: right to wear what they want.

The reality in Iran is such that the anti-woman laws of the Islamic Republic is interweaved with the existence and survival of the regime, and therefore the women in Iran cannot get rid of such reactionary and ancient rules under the “Green” Flag, meaning without the overthrow of the regime, as it is preached by the reformers of the regime today.

The anti-woman regime of Iran and in general oppression of women is in the interest of the capitalists. And, the Islamic Republic with religious ideology and seeking Islam is in fact is exacerbating the exploiting condition of women workers and by doing so, exacerbating the exploitation of the whole working class, even further for the bourgeoisie benefits. This point, of course in greater details, has been explained by me a few years ago in an article titled: “The prevalence of anti-woman culture in the service of exploiting the workers evermore”. Here, referring to the above fact, it is only stressed that why the anti-woman laws of the Islamic Republic along with the anti-woman regime itself can only be overthrown to the trash bin of history by the revolutionary women and men adapting revolutionary path. And why the totality of the Islamic Republic, along with all its factions and wings, must be destroyed by the power of people, i.e. by the heroic power of the conscious women and men, to facilitate the foundation of progressive laws in favour of women, and in general enabling the liberation of women.

If we accept that the best measure to gauge freedom in a society is the level of freedom of women, therefore, once the Islamic Republic Regime is overthrown, one of the most important proofs of any regime that claims to be caring and democratic, shall be that in its first steps, not only recognises the equality of women and men in all spheres of economy, sociology and politics, but also declares and proves in deed that the state has no right in delving in to the private life of the citizens: from how women wear their clothes to their beliefs and credence. The more the hands of state is off the privacy and private affairs of the citizens, the more a civic society expands, and this is in itself a measure of how democratic the society has become. At the same time, religion should be considered as a private matter for the citizens, and a democratic government must not allow it to play any role in the public life, and with emphasise even more, that it should have no role in the social life of women.

Freedom of the society is dependent on the freedom of women, and for us, the overthrow of the Islamic Republic of Iran with all its factions and wings, is the first step towards freedom. Let us strive to do all we can in this path, and this is how we should celebrate the International Women’s Day.

Message to the UTWE and TPLF

on occassion of Women's Day on 8th of March 1991

sent by Wolfgang Eggers - chairman of the KPD/ML

 

 

 

It is capital itself ...


... that perpetuates the conditions of women’s inequality through the absolute limits it imposes on the socialisation of domestic work.

 

It is clear therefore that the struggle for women’s emancipation directly involves a struggle against capital itself. It is the existence of privatised, individual toil in the home together with the inferior position that women occupy in social production that forms the material basis of women’s oppression under capitalism. This will only be eroded in a society where planned production can ensure that there is no separation between the production of wealth in general and the reproduction of the human race. Therefore, there is no separation between the interests of women and the independent interests of the working class as a whole. Both interests can only be defended by overthrowing capitalism. This is the only standpoint from which a revolutionary perspective for the defence of women’s interests can be developed.

The position of women today is just as much dependent on the needs of capital accumulation as at the beginning of this century. The increased employment of women, the growth of state services, the increased consumption of labour-saving goods, have only resulted from a higher level of capital accumulation. However, the absolute position of women has not changed. In spite of the post-war boom even the basic preconditions for women’s true social equality, such as childcare facilities, have not been established. Capital thus continues to benefit from the oppression of women in the following ways:

1. The essential tasks of childbearing and childrearing are performed gratis.

2. A section of the workforce lies outside production and can be called upon, according to capital’s needs, to augment the industrial reserve army.

3. Women are a source of cheap labour.

4. Divisions are created among the working class.

Once again as capitalism goes into crisis, cuts in health and education, unemployment, the denial of equal pay, demonstrate even more clearly that the source of women’s oppression is not lack of rights but the existence of capitalist relations of production.

The question of women’s oppression is a central one for the working class. Women’s domestic slavery in the home is essential in reproducing the social relations of capitalism. The role that women are forced to play in the crisis, working harder in the home to offset inflation and unemployment, being sacked and re-employed more easily, working harder and for less pay than men, will aid capital in its attempt to solve its crisis at the expense of the working class. The divisions between men and women workers will not be overcome unless women’s interests are taken up centrally by the working class. On this question there is no choice for the movement. The response of women to their oppression in the past has played a crucial role in the revolutionary movement. Similarly today, the struggles such as those for equal pay, nurseries and abortion are essential to the revolutionary struggle of the working class as a whole.

Excerpt of the World-Communist Programme

concerning emancipation of women

 

 

11

We want to abolish completely the privileges and discrimination of gender .

We are for the emancipated development of the personality of every human being in the world, regardless of the gender.

 

Only the world communism creates the perfect social equality between men and women. The full satisfaction of gender-specific needs presupposes the full emancipation of women towards men. And without social emancipation of women is no development of harmonic social and economic relations possible.

The gender-related freedom presupposes the abolition of mutual economic dependency not only between man and woman, but also between the wife and the whole society.


"The real emancipation of women, real communism, will begin only where and when an all-out struggle begins (led by the proletariat wielding the state power) against this petty housekeeping, or rather when its wholesale transformation into a large-scale socialist economy begins." (Lenin, A Great Beginning, Collected Works, Volume 29, page 429).

Engels:

"What will be the influence of communist society on the family?

It will transform the relations between the sexes into a purely private matter which concerns only the persons involved and into which society has no occasion to intervene. It can do this since it does away with private property and educates children on a communal basis, and in this way removes the two bases of traditional marriage – the dependence rooted in private property, of the women on the man, and of the children on the parents.

And here is the answer to the outcry of the highly moral philistines against the “community of women”. Community of women is a condition which belongs entirely to bourgeois society and which today finds its complete expression in prostitution. But prostitution is based on private property and falls with it. Thus, communist society, instead of introducing community of women, in fact abolishes it." (Engels, Principles of Communism, Answer 21).

World communism can only be achieved through the full emancipation and equality of women. And conversely, the complete emancipation and equal rights for women can be realized only in world communism. In world communism, the exploitation and oppression of woman by man has been abolished forever.

World Communism does not invent the influence of society on gender and education. It only changes its character, namely the fact that the relationship between husband and wife and the education takes place in the classless society.

In a classless society, the unfolding of man and woman, of parents and children will be brought to a higher qualitative level, because the influence of the ruling classes on the relation between men and women and on education will be abolished forever. In world communism, no longer a state will be needed which must guard and enforce the rights of women. Both man and woman respect the opposite sex through voluntary and conscious adherence to the rules of living together.

 


 


 

Marx and Engels,

Communist Manifesto, 1848:

"Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists . . . The bourgeois sees in his wife a mere instrument of production. He hears that the instruments of production are to be exploited in common, and, naturally, can come to no other conclusion than that the lot of being common to all will likewise fall to the women. He has not even a suspicion that the real point is to do away with the status of women as mere instruments of production."

 

 

Frederik Engels

Origins of the Family, Private Property and the State, 1884:

"With regard to the juridical equality of man and woman in marriage: the inequality of the two before the law, which is a legacy of previous social conditions, is not the cause but the effect of the economic oppression ofwomen . . . The necessity, as well as themanner, of establishing real social equality between the two will be brought out into full relief only when both are completely equal before the law."

 

 

Communist International, Resolution on the Role of Working Women.

March 6, 1919


The Congress of the Communist International recognizes that the realization of all the tasks it sets by itself, as well as the ultimate victory of the world proletariat and the complete abolishment of the capitalistic system, can be attained only by the closely united common effort of the men and women of the working class.

The enormously growing employment of female labor in all branches of economy, the fact that no less than half of all existing values are produced by women's' hand, the recognition of the important part proletarian women play in the construction of the new Communist social order, particularly in the transition to communistic domestic relations, in the reform of the family as an institution, and the realization of a socialistic education of children destined to produce able and common-spirited citizens for the Soviet Republics-all these considerations cause the following to be the urgent task of all parties adhering to the Communist International: to exert all their energy towards the winning of proletarian women for those parties, and towards the education of working women in the spirit of the new society and of communistic ethics in society and the family.

The dictatorship of the proletariat can be realized and kept up only through the active and energetic participation of the women of the working class.
