Our Freedom Is In Our Struggle

ref-engIn women’s freedom struggle, discussion of “right to vote” goes back to 19th century, the time when “right to vote” campaigns were at their peak. Although “universal right to vote” has been imposed as a political reality from the time it was put in effect along with the West type of “liberal democracies” existing in many parts of the world; it is a subject of an ongoing discussion for us, women, who have been witnessing that liberal democracies have not brought about any kind of “freedom” and who are sure that it will never do.

When “right to vote” is presented on the basis of equality of woman and man, it will trap woman into a big delusion. Like many other subjects that liberal democracy puts under the scope of rights and freedoms, it presents a fait accompli, avoiding in depth discussion of theoretical and practical aspects of the subject, and an evaluation of the implementations with regards to the individuals who will exercise these “rights and freedoms”. This feature of liberal democracy is related to its state structure which will not let questioning of the political, economic and social mechanisms and will impose these mechanisms on individuals. As for the ones who question this state structure and its mechanisms have been labeled as opposing “equality of woman and man”.

The discussions related to women’s “right to vote” exist both in the past, and also today. Observing the discussions made during 19th century in the North America geography where these campaigns were at their peak, enables us not only to see the relationship between the mere “right to vote” and woman struggle, but also to think about concepts like woman as a political subject and political equalit (daha&helliip;)

Her Gün Bizimdir : (6 Mart) Emma Goldman Film Gösterimi


Anarşist Kadınlar olarak düzenlediğimiz 8 Mart etkinlikleri dahilinde, bugün(6 Mart) Kafe 26A’da “Fevkalade Tehlikeli Bir Kadın:Emma Goldman” adlı filmin gösterimini yaptık. Anarşist tarihin fevkalade tehlikeli kadınlarından olan Emma Goldman’ın hayatını ve mücadelesini izlerken, bizler özgürlük mücadelemizi-kadının ‘erk’e karşı olan mücadelesini-bir kez daha tartıştık.

“Kadının gelişimi, bağımsızlığı özgürlüğü kendisinden gelmelidir. İlk olarak kendisini bir obje değil, bir kişilik olarak ortaya koymalıdır. İkincisi; hayatını basit, fakat zengin ve derin kılarak; kendi bedeni üzerinde başkalarının iddia ettiği tüm haklara karşı koymalı, istemediği sürece çocuk yapmamalı, tanrının, devletin, kocasının, ailesinin bir kulu olmaya karşı çıkmalıdır. Bu da hayatın tüm karmaşıklığını ve özünü anlamaya çalışarak, yani kendini toplumun fikirlerinden ve yargılarından özgürleştirerek olur.”
Emma Goldman
