For Equal Rights; Equal Opportunities for all working women

Under the right wing regime of the Modi led NDA government in the country attacks on the basic and fundamental rights of all sections including minorities, dalits, women etc. have increased. BJP ruled states like Haryana and Rajasthan are even denying the right to contest in panchayat elections on the basis of literacy, number of children and indebtedness etc. People are increasingly being attacked for not conforming to the dictates of these communal forces on their eating, dressing and other personal choices. All these are meant to deny the constitutionally guaranteed rights of equal rights and equal opportunities to all citizens of the country irrespective of their gender, caste or creed.

All state committees of Confederation and its affiliated organisations must highlight all these aspects and issues related to ‘Equal Rights and Equal Opportunities’ for women workers on this occasion. All are requested to link these up with the neoliberal policies being implemented by successive governments and the communal divisive ideology.

All State committees, District committees and affiliated organisations are requested to take proper organisational measures to ensure effective observance of International Women’s Day, wherever possible, jointly with the state coordination committees of working women. Efforts should be made for joint activities with fraternal organisations including the women’s subcommittees of fraternal trade union organisations in the planning and observance of the International Women’s Day in a befitting manner.
