WE NEED an autonomous organization, or rather a self-organization and the struggle of women against the debt and austerity. If women are the first victims of the current neoliberal aggression against wage earners and all of society, it is not only because they are laid off en masse and as a priority. It is mainly because a cornerstone of this aggression, namely the destruction and privatization of public services, has as a direct result that women are forced to assume within the family public utility tasks assumed until yesterday by the state. In sum, women are now called on to provide at home, in private, the services once offered by kindergartens, hospitals, hospices for the elderly, unemployment funds, psychiatric establishments, and even social security.

Women need to organize independently to combat debt and austerity. If they do not, there is no one who will do it in their place. Sonia.MITRALIA gmail.com, member of CADTM, the Committee for Cancellation of the Third World Debt
