Havana, Jul 16 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan women, in the midst of imperialist hostility, come out every day to defend life and the Bolivarian Revolution, assured today the leader of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Blanca Eekhout.
‘We go out to the streets to say we are present and to safeguard our rights as citizens of a free republic to build a feminist socialism within a revolution,’ the vice president of Alliances and Social Movements of the PSUV told Prensa Latina during the 24th edition of the Forum of Sao Paolo.
Eekhout highlighted the achievements of the revolution in her country regarding this social segment, including the establishment of a gender language in the Constitution and a law for a life free of violence.
She also mentioned a rule that defends respect for pregnancy, delivery and birth, and the debate on a law of political parity to make women visible.
Beyond occupying responsibilities in this struggle against the economic war, in the Local Committees of Supply and Production, almost 90 percent are led by women.
Meanwhile, 70 percent of women are in the leaders of the municipalities, Eekhout gave as an example in the conclave, which ends tomorrow with the presence of over 400 participants.
