8 MART DÜNYA EMEKÇİ KADINLAR GÜNÜNDE KIBRIS ÖĞRETMEN SENDİKALARINDAN ORTAK BASIN BİLDİRİSİ

88

Kadınların iş yerlerinde kendilerine uygulanan ayrımcılığa ve haksızlığa baş kaldırmasının üzerinden 165 yıl geçti. Binlerce kadın çalışma koşullarının iyileştirilmesi ve eşit işe eşit ücret istemiyle grev yapmış, verilen mücadelede birçok kadın hayatını kaybetmiştir. ‘8 Mart Dünya Emekçi Kadınlar Günü’ onurlu ve  örgütlü mücadelenin, dayanışmanın simgesi olmuştur.

Kadınların  yıllardır devam eden eşitlik mücadelesi, pandemiyle birlikte daha da zor hale gelmiştir. Özellikle son iki yılda pandeminin ve kapanmanın etkisiyle derinleşen ekonomik kriz kadınların yükünü ve kadınla erkek arasındaki hep var olan gelir eşitsizliğini artırmıştır. İş yaşamının eve taşınması, çocuk ve yaşlı bakımlarını çoğunlukla kadınların üstlenmesi nedeniyle ev içi yük kat kat artmıştır. Buna parallel olarak kadınların maruz kaldığı ev içi şiddet olayları da artış göstermiştir.

Bu süre içinde hükümetler kadınları güvence altına alacak ve destekleyecek sosyal politikalar oluşturmamış, kadınlara verilmesi gereken destek verilmemiştir. ‘Yeni normal yaşama’ dönmeye hazırlandığımız bu dönemde de kadınlar kendilerini bekleyen birçok sorunla karşı karşıyadır. Sorunların çözümü için kadınların hayatın her alanında ve karar mekanizmalarında aktif görev almaları önemlidir ve desteklenmelidir.

Dünyamız çatışma ve savaşlara sahne olurken, özellikle kadınlar ve çocuklar için yaşam her geçen gün zorlaşmaktadır. Son günlerde yaşanan gelişmeler hepimizi üzmekte ve korkutmaktadır. Bizler savaşı yaşadık ve sonucu bölünmüş bir ada, bölünmüş yaşamlar oldu.

Avrupa Sendikaları Eğitim Komitesi – ETUCE’e üye Kıbrıslı eğitim sendikaları olarak, 8 Mart Dünya Kadınlar gününde emekçi kadınlarımızın onurlu ve örgütlü mücadelesini selamlıyoruz. Hayatın her alanında cinsiyet eşitliği bilincini sağlayacak ve geliştirecek adımların atılması, gelecek nesillerin eşitlik, demokrasi, adalet, karşılıklı kabul ve uzlaşma değerleriyle yaşaması için ortak mücadelemizin devam edeceğini belirtmekten mutluluk duyuyoruz.

ΚΟΙΝΗ ΔΙΑΚΗΡΥΞΗ ΤΩΝ ΕΚΠΑΙΔΕΥΤΙΚΩΝ ΟΡΓΑΝΩΣΕΩΝ ΜΕ ΤΗΝ ΕΥΚΑΙΡΙΑ ΤΗΣ ΠΑΓΚΟΣΜΙΑΣ ΗΜΕΡΑΣ ΤΗΣ ΓΥΝΑΙΚΑΣ

Έχουν περάσει 165 χρόνια από τότε που οι γυναίκες αντέδρασαν στις διακρίσεις και την αδικία εναντίον τους και στους χώρους εργασίας. Χιλιάδες γυναίκες διεκδίκησαν δυναμικά, απαιτώντας για ίδια εργασία, ίση αμοιβή και καλύτερες συνθήκες εργασίας. Διαχρονικά, πολλές γυναίκες έχασαν τη ζωή τους στον αγώνα αυτό. Η «8η  Μαρτίου, Παγκόσμια Ημέρα της Γυναίκας» έχει γίνει σύμβολο αξιοπρέπειας, οργανωμένου αγώνα και αλληλεγγύης.

Η πανδημία δέχει επιφέρει ακόμα περισσότερες δυσκολίες στον αγώνα για ίση μεταχείριση. Η οικονομική κρίση ως αποτέλεσμα της πανδημίας, έχει αυξήσει την καταπίεση των γυναικών και την προϋπάρχουσα εισοδηματική ανισότητα μεταξύ ανδρών και γυναικών. Τα οικογενειακά βάρη των γυναικών έχουν αυξηθεί ποικιλοτρόπως, καθώς οι γυναίκες αναλαμβάνουν τη φροντίδα των παιδιών και των ηλικιωμένων στο σπίτι. Παράλληλα έχει αυξηθεί η ενδοοικογενειακή βία κατά των γυναικών.

Κατά τη διάρκεια αυτής της περιόδου, οι κυβερνήσεις δεν δημιούργησαν κοινωνικές πολιτικές για να εξασφαλίσουν και να προσφέρουν την απαραίτητη υποστήριξη στις γυναίκες. Στις μέρες μας, ο κόσμος βρίσκεται στη διαδικασία επιστροφής στη νέα κανονικότητα, ωστόσο οι γυναίκες εξακολουθούν να αντιμετωπίζουν πολλές προκλήσεις. Είναι σημαντικό να υποστηρίξουμε τις γυναίκες, ώστε να αναλάβουν ενεργό ρόλο σε όλες τις πτυχές της ζωής και στη λήψη αποφάσεων για την επίλυση προβλημάτων.

Ενώ ο κόσμος μας βιώνει συγκρούσεις και πολέμους, η ζωή γίνεται όλο και πιο δύσκολη, ιδιαίτερα για τις γυναίκες και τα παιδιά. Οι πρόσφατες εξελίξεις μάς έχουν ανησυχήσει ιδιαίτερα, μιας και είμαστε κι εμείς θύματα ανάλογης κατάστασης και συνεχίζουμε να βιώνουμε τις συνέπειες του πολέμου στη χώρα μας.

Ως Εκπαιδευτικές  Οργανώσεις της Κύπρου, μέλη της ETUCE (European Trade Union Committee for Education), χαιρετίζουμε τον αξιοπρεπή και οργανωμένο αγώνα των γυναικών και την Παγκόσμια Ημέρα της Γυναίκας. Δηλώνουμε με περηφάνεια ότι η κοινή προσπάθεια θα συνεχιστεί για να κάνουμε βήματα ώστε να γίνουν ουσιαστικά βήματα για εξίσωση των φύλων σε όλους τους τομείς της ζωής, διασφαλίζοντας ότι οι μελλοντικές γενιές θα ζήσουν τις αξίες της Ισότητας, της Δημοκρατίας, της Δικαιοσύνης, της Αμοιβαίας Αποδοχής και της Συμφιλίωσης.

JOINT STATEMENT ON THE OCCASSION OF 8TH of march WORLD WOMEN’s DAY

It’s been 165 years since women rebelled against discrimination and injustice against themselves in workplaces. Thousands of women went on strike demanding equal pay for equal work and improved working conditions. Many women lost their lives in the struggle. “March 8, International Women’s Day” has become a symbol of dignity, organized struggle and solidarity.

Women’s long struggle for equality has become even more challenging with the pandemic. The economic crisis that has deepened especially in the last two years due to the pandemic and the lock down has increased the burden of women and the ever-existing income inequality between men and women. Household load has increased in many ways as women have taken the care of their children and elderly lives at home. Domestic violence against women increased in parallel.

During this period, governments did not set up social policies to ensure and support women, and they did not offer the necessary support for women. Nowadays, the world is in the process to turn to the new normal life, yet women still are facing many challenges. It is important to support women to take an active role in all aspects of life and decision-making for the solution of problems.

While our world experiences conflicts and wars, life is becoming harder and harder, especially for women and children. Recent developments upset and frighten us all. We’ve been through the war in this country, and the consequence of it was a divided island and divided lives.

As the Cypriot teacher trade unions, members of the European Trade Unions Committee for Education – ETUCE, we salute women’s dignified and organized struggle on International Women’s Day, March 8. We are delighted to say that our common struggle will continue in order to take steps to raise and enhance gender equality in all areas of life and ensure that future generations live in the values of equality, democracy, justice, mutual acceptance and reconciliation.
