New Year’s Message from ECICW

The famous feminist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir from France expressed in her world known essay “the Second Sex” her concern about the durability of women’s rights. She said: in matter of women’s rights, nothing is definitely acquired: a political, economic or religious crisis will be enough to destroy the progress laboriously obtained along the years. Women’s rights are fragile.
Here we are!
In 2016 we experienced the revival of religious and political profound divisions in America, in France, in Turkey, in Poland, in Syria and brought to the surface anger, racial discriminations and antifeminism. Cruel and sexist behaviors have become acceptable for a majority of citizens, among them a lot of women.
For us, women’s emancipation activists the blow is rude. It means that the way to Equality will be still long if we have also to convince women themselves of their own responsibility in building a society where women are considered as human beings with respect and dignity.
Let’s hope that 2017 will provide us with many opportunities to prove that our combat is right.
Best wishes to all of you.

ECICW President
