Manifesto for a social and productive change in terms of women
Looking directly into the working world from a woman’s perspective.
politicians, social leaders and organizations declare that:
Maternity is being discriminated against in the Western World. Being a
mother –or wanting to be one- causes many women to be pushed away from the
incorporation of women in the workplace has severely ignored everything they
can contribute from their natural identity, and has neglected the different stages motherhood defines in their career.
In order to
recover the full identity of women in the workplace, it is necessary to make a
change in social culture and also in the productive model so that economic rationality is not separated
from the person and life is not subordinated to the interests of capital. A new socio-economic system that recognizes
the family as a social foundation is much needed.
For all this,
the following points are imperative:
1. A REAL AND POSITIVE WORK-FAMILY BALANCE, that allows
women and men to raise and educate their children. This positive reconcilement
involves making schedules more flexible, allowing the reduction of working
hours and promoting work from home and professional responsibilities by goals
through tax incentives in social security contributions to the companies
that develop them.
2. THE LEGAL AND CULTURAL RECOGNITION OF
THE EXCLUSIVE DEDICATION TO THE FAMILY. This
dedication to the family implies an immense source of wealth and social
welfare that is quantifiable economically through the GDP. Not recognizing
the dedication institutionally entails social discrimination. Thus:
- The exclusive dedication to the
family should be considered as a job category with access to social security,
medical leave and retirement.
- The reincorporation of women, who,
because of their dedication to the family, have been out of the workplace,
should be encouraged. This must be done by the state in a subsidiary manner
through tax advantages in social security contributions for companies. In this
regard, the main focus should be on women who are particularly vulnerable, such
as single, widowed or separated mothers.
3. THE DENUNCIATION OF ANY DISCRIMINATORY
GESTURE TOWARDS WOMEN AND MATERNITY.
This includes the discrimination against working women who have children or who
want to have children, and those who are exclusively or partially dedicated to
the care of their families. It also
involves the elimination of the wage gap and access to certain jobs.
4. THE ELIMINATION OF SOCIAL AND
IDEOLOGICAL POLICIES AS WELL AS OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS THAT DO NOT RESPECT THE
FEMININE IDENTITY AND MOTHERHOOD. Specifically,
the gender perspective imposed in the educational, business and media spheres
that does not reflect reality, but instead manipulates it.
