In honor of women

Who run the world? Girls!

Officialised by the United Nations in 1977, "International Women's Rights Day" has its origins in the struggles of women workers and suffragettes in the early 20th century for better working conditions and the right to vote. After having worked in the 1970s for the liberation of the female body, today the feminist struggle is more in line with a movement to denounce violence (physical, emotional, symbolic) against women. While these rights are constantly being challenged throughout the world (freedom of education in the Middle East, abortion challenged in the United States, etc.), France is struggling to fight against patriarchy. According to the UN, the objective of equality between men and women will not be achieved for another 300 years. In France, 94,000 women are victims of rape or attempted rape each year; 213,000 women are victims of physical or sexual violence by their spouse or ex-spouse each year. In 2022, 147 women were killed by men because of their gender. In the private sector, in 2022, women earn 28.5% less than men on average. They are more likely to work part-time and in lower paid jobs than men. For equivalent working hours and positions, the pay gap is 5.3%. Today's album is a drop in the ocean and honours these women.
