Riser 2030 : The next decade needs to be of a feminist

. We see how they crawl, walk, talk, learn, as they discover the world and question: Why is the sun during the day and at night the moon? Why is that so and so – and this must be so? And we ask ourselves: Why is this so? And the must?

100 years Ago, the women suffrage was introduced. Article 3 of the basic law solemnly proclaimed: "All people are equal before the law. Men and women are equal." Yes, women have the same rights as men. This is a matter of course. Actually. But the reality looks different: In Germany, are Power, money, and time different between the sexes distributed. Women are under-represented in culture, media, politics. Patriarchal embossing work deep in the Thinking and Actions of men and women. And they are daily reproduced.

And more: all around us we see a Rollback, which is a double Problem: In those countries where women's rights be trimmed back, as in Russia, in Poland, in the USA - the governments of authoritarian. Women's rights are a Seismograph for the state of liberal democracy.

When we see this development, makes us angry. When we read, like women's networks, such as LOL in France on Twitter to be defamed, when we read Tweets, in which men threaten us in the anonymity of the network, with rape, where we are ridiculed, it makes us angry. We can't believe we have to fight, women still have it all, what is for men a matter of course. And against what is happening to women for centuries: sexual violence.

We want that our daughters no longer have to put up with it. We want you to be able to live free of fear, in a world without sexism, and without violence. We want you to decide freely, not in clichés are pressed, that you can climb to any Position you want. Our daughters should grow up with the same opportunities as the sons of others. That's why the next decade of feminist. Therefore, we formulate a feminist awakening 2030, a Plan for the next ten years.

Yes, admittedly, everything is new. But that is exactly the Problem. The Knowledge of how it can go, long since. But we must act. Now. So we can say in ten years:

by 2030, half the Power belongs to the women

After the last Bundestag election, the share of women in the Parliament is 30 per cent has fallen. About half of the German population is female! At the latest now it is time for a Paritégesetz. We propose a model, which was introduced by our group in the Brandenburg state Parliament: It aims to be an equal occupation of the lists and the constituencies, because only then the parity is a reality. That is complicated, is clear. Nevertheless, The Bundestag should get started. But it's not just the parliaments. It is the Power in business, media, culture, and science. By 2030, the proportion of women should be at last 50 per cent. Half of the Power to the women!

protection from violence for every woman

one in four women will once in their lives victims of violence. Most of the attacks in their own home. And this is not a new finding, but decades-old bitter reality. Thus, we find ourselves no longer. 'No means no' is the law and must be enforced. For this we need above all is more prevention. In schools and universities must be informed about violence and gender roles. We need a well-trained, and for dealing with the Victims sensitised the police and the judiciary. We are also calling for a legal right for all women to protection and support and participation of the Federal government in the financing of women's shelters. Never again here is a woman to be rejected for reasons of capacity; their protection should be written in a power law. Violence prevention also relates to the Internet: in Order to protect women against hatred and in digital violence in the Form of reduction of, damage to reputation, or blackmail, we call for more programs for digital literacy and media literacy. We need more advice and contact points for victims of cyber bullying and violence in the network, as well as well-trained staff of law enforcement authorities. The right also applies in the network.

Equal Pay and Equal Pension

women still earn about 20 percent less than their male colleagues, and get on average 60% less pension than men. This is mainly due to the fact that most women work in Jobs that are paid worse. Here there must be urgently for a turn. If we want our daughters don't have to live with the same pension gap as the current Generation, we urgently need to change something: Social professions, such as those in the care and upbringing must be decently paid. The Federal government, States and municipalities can set a good example, and Employees in these areas, better pay. In addition, the splitting must be abolished, for new marriages, and instead, a family support will be introduced in the Form of a children's basic security.

Partnership-based division of childcare and career

is the equal distribution of education and occupation desired by many couples, and often fails, however, to the difficult conditions. And this Failure is to the detriment of women: put in the work, you will have to provide the bulk of unpaid care work. Also, more and more men take Parental leave. Often, it remains, however, in the two months that are required to be able to have the full parents ' money to exploit. We want to enforce a different policy on Working hours of parents, the education and the professional partnership may split and in the first year of life, in addition to time-outs from the profession for the care of their children. And we want to expand the day-care, both quantitatively and qualitatively, to support the families.

Reproductive health care for all women

Expectant mothers need to have the choice of how and where you release your child want. The quality of the supply must be secured during and after the birth. It can't be that midwives costs because of an unreasonable insurance, poor pay or poor working have to give up conditions of their profession. To get to the midwife profession, it needs a Reform of the training towards an Academisation of the profession and better working conditions for midwives. Above all, they need to be better paid.

To sexual self-determination, the freedom of Information about abortion, and a good supply in all regions, clinics and practices that offer this. Unintentionally pregnant women in need of support and help in their local area and on the Internet, no paternalism, and punishment. The Paragraph 219a is, and remains, a Remnant of a backward time and must be from the criminal code deleted. For this, we will fight continue.

women in the world are equal

wars are usually decided by men, and led to diplomatic negotiations and peace talks in the international politics of the men are taking part most of the time. However, women and children are the victims in the areas of war and crisis, and as civilians are particularly affected by violence, rape, and murder There is an urgent need, here in the next ten years, to rethink and to allow women to half of the international policy.

freedom, equality, Sisterhood

to achieve all this, we need also solidarity among women. And here we must certainly put our own nose: still existing Patriarchal structures not only determine the thoughts and Actions of men but also of women. We are not able to make us of, sometimes free, and rise to the devaluation mechanisms. But now is the time of women. We want to overcome Patriarchal pattern. Therefore, we invite all women to fight as part of a feminist awakening with a new Sisterhood for equal rights and feminism.
