March 8, International Working Women’s Day symbolizes the day women had struggled for their rights at the cost of their lives.
The struggle for women’s rights is a struggle for democracy. It is a struggle to support the development of the country.
We stand by our colleagues who do not allow any steps to be taken back from democracy and secularism in these days we are going through and who are struggling in every sphere of life for safeguarding the Kemalist principles and revolutions for the continuity of the state.
We celebrate any struggle of our female colleagues who make a great effort for the regulation of equality between men and women, which is a sine qua non of democracy, in laws, for carrying the existing laws into effect, for elimination of all sorts of violence such as economic, physical, verbal, sexual and psychological violence against women.
