Les Penelopes
February 2001 

In between two March 8ths, we're still around!

As regular as March snow flurries is our Day. Did you know that now it
sells (Humor)? It's also the time to make pretty speeches, and, of
course!, the time to organize, meet, exchange (Agit'Prop =96 And us?).
This year, press coverage was honorable. But there are subjects that are
ignored or barely mentioned: abolition of prostitution, for example,
that is a big issue in Europe (Documents/Citizenship). The massacre of
the pre-Islamic statues called attention to another massacre in
Afghanistan =96 that of women. For the statues, it's too late, but for the
women, the fight continues (Solidarity). It is essential to get behind
it because the impunity of the Taleban puts wind in the sails of those
in other countries, in the name is Islam, harden the repression against
women (Agit'Prop). While in the America of Bush, the religious right is
trimming the sails in all legality of their rights (Agit'Prop).
Resistances, fortunately, are making headway. Present at Porto Alegre
(And us?), feminists will also be at the World Conference Against Racism
in South Africa (Agenda) and at the People's Summit in Quebec (And us?).
In rural, rather macho, France, women farmers are defending their jobs,
their status, their environment (OtherTake /Spotlight - Points of View).
Respect of the human being, respect of nature: the same claims dominate
here, in Brazil or in Senegal, where other women of the earth share
their experiences (OtherTake / Points of view).
