Feminist marches on Sunday against the far right

Feminist associations and unions are calling for general mobilization on Sunday against the far right, denouncing its “facade feminism” and the “the real danger it represents” for women’s rights, accusations rejected by the National Rally, which castigates “caricatures”.

One week before the first round of the legislative elections, for which the RN is the favorite, a procession will set off at 2:30 p.m. in Paris, from République to join Nation, where a “feminist alert will be launched” with whistles, at the call of more than two hundred associations (Women’s Foundation, Family Planning, #NousToutes…), NGOs (Oxfam, France terre d’Asile…) and unions (CGT, CFDT…).

Similar demonstrations are announced in around thirty other cities, including Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand, Poitiers and Nice.

“It’s a dark picture that faces us: if the National Rally wins, we will be the first to be attacked, along with LGBTQ+ people and immigrants”estimates, to Agence France-Presse, Suzy Rojtman, spokesperson for the National Collective for Women’s Rights (CNDF).

“It’s very obvious in Europe: where the far right has gone, women’s rights have regressed in one way or another”she adds, citing Italy, governed by Giorgia Meloni, of the post-fascist far right, as well as the former government of the populist nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party in Poland.

In Italy, the Meloni government passed a law to authorize the intervention of anti-abortion associations in structures organizing access to abortion. Poland experienced a profound setback in women’s rights during PiS’s eight years in power, which led to a near-total ban on abortion. More recently, the absence of the right to abortion in the G7 commitments has been attributed to Italy, the host country.

In France, the prospect of an absolute or relative majority for the RN in the National Assembly makes associations fear cuts in public subsidies, with a “direct impact” for women.

“The RN calls itself almost feminist, but we are not fooled”says Suzy Rojtman. “The only talk they say about violence against women is when the attackers are strangers when we know very well that the vast majority of violence occurs within the family sphere. »
