More than 90 feminist organisations from Spain and 12 countries have co-organised the 3rd Abolitionist March to be held this Saturday 8 May. It is promoted and organised since 2019 by Women for Abolition -Women for Abolition, calls for theabolition of prostitution, pornography and reproductive exploitation (uterus for rent). The first edition took place in presence, in the neighbourhoods most affected by prostitution in Barcelona, with the collaboration of French comrades and the survivor Rosen Hicher. A historic day that opened a breach in Spain. There were tensions with women prostitutes protesting on behalf of pimps and with activists in favour of the regulation of prostitution throwing coloured powder as the procession passed through the most confrontational area (as it turned out, paid-for it). But there was also the gratitude of citizenship. The national press, including major TV channels, agencies and newspapers, widely reported the initiative.

The Second Abolitionist March was to take place in the streets of Madrid 9 May 2020, but had to take place virtually because of the pandemic. Despite this, it achieved an unexpected international participation in social networks. This second edition closed with a final congressand held in September in virtual mode. Among the speakers were prominent names such as Julie Bindel, Gail Dines, Janice Raymond, Ingeborg Kraus, Renate Klein, Raquel Rosario Sánchez and Alika Kinan. On that occasion, a debate on the abolition of gender and workcarried out with the collaboration of 29 Spanish and international feminist organisations. In conclusion, the Poster which collected thousands of signatures in support.

The third march, this Saturday 8 May, will have the same virtual format and it is hoped that it will have an even greater international projection. The distance travelled by the 3rd March will be calculated by attributing one kilometre of road for each interaction in the social networks. Also in September this year there will be a Congress with speakers from radical feminism.


"Women for Abolition (Women for Abolition) is a non-partisan collective of women from all over Spain.
We are abolitionists of prostitution, surrogacy, pornography and gender. Through the organisation of conferences and through our social networks, we explain the need to eradicate these patriarchal institutions and practices.
Supported by other collectives, we started the First March Abolitionist of Prostitution and Womb for Rent in Spain. We will continue to promote these kinds of demonstrations in the streets (when COVID restrictions allow it) and on social media in order to achieve the adoption of abolitionist legislation that protects and guarantees women's rights.
We spread feminist theory with the aim that our genealogy be recognised and create a social conscience about the sexual oppression of women and girls worldwide.
Women for Abolition was established in September 2018. We currently have one virtual community of 30,000 people in the following social networks:

III Abolitionist March 8 May 2021

MANIFESTO (in original version here )

III Abolitionist March on prostitution, pornography, reproductive exploitation of women and sex roles.

Women for Abolition calls on the feminist movement and women's civil and human rights organisations to adhere to this Manifesto and participate in the actions.
This is based on the following complaints:

- Prostitution is a form of extreme violence against women and girls
It represents an international billion-dollar business (in Spain alone it generates profits of more than €5 million a day) that turns women into commodities, through the sexual domination of men over women.
Therefore, prostitution is obviously a patriarchal institution, a practice that violates human rights, reifies and commodifies women's bodies.
The abolition of prostitution is built on theelimination of demand and resolution of what causes it, i.e. sexual inequality.
Criminals in the prostitution industry, pimps and whores, must be prosecuted by law.

We are fighting for the law to consider prostituted women as victims who must be provided with the integral help they need to recover their freedom.

- The Pornography, being filmed prostitution, fits into and grows within the same moral, economic and social framework as the latter:
Pornography not only feeds on the patriarchal relationship of domination/submission, but is its essential condition, without which its construction would not currently be possible.
Pornography 'is real' because its consequences are real, whereby accepting the violence inherent in pornography means opening the door to accepting misogyny in all aspects of women's lives, of
consequence of the normalisation of sexual violence.
In Spain, there are very few instruments to denounce the violence of which women are victims in the world of pornography, because the porn prostitution industry escapes the law, which is indifferent to it (the consumption of pornographic material is neither regulated nor punished), leaving women defenceless.
For all these reasons we demand a abolitionist law of the prostitution system that considers pornography as another aspect of it, fight both and make sure that offenders are punished and women victims are protected.

- A Another aspect of patriarchal domination is the appropriation of women's reproductive capacity.e:
A biological capacity cannot be ceded to a third party because it does not exist without the woman as a whole.
Motherhood is a biological fact whose physical and emotional implications cannot be made the subject of a contract.
The use of women for reproductive exploitation (infamously known as the uterus for rent) is not a technique; we women are not a useful tool for the fulfilment of others' wishes to have offspring who
share their genetics.
̚We also know that The only interest of those who advocate 'altruistic' regulation is to facilitate the registration of girls and boys born abroad by commercial means.
It makes neither legal nor moral sense for reproductive exploitation to be prohibited in Spain while at the same time encouraging the purchase of babies in other countries, allowing the 'legalisation' of the situation of a child who is a product of the crime of human trafficking.
An urgent global prohibition of this practice and greater involvement of international and supranational bodies in defending the human rights of women, girls and boys.

Finally we are opposed to transactivism and its essentialisation of sex roles.
Attempts to justify and naturalise the situation of subordination that we women suffer are nothing more than yet another social tool of patriarchy to subjugate us: sex roles.
Gender is the educational tool that is used to perpetuate and sustain patriarchy through gender roles.
As radical feminists We CANNOT conceive of sexual oppression being conceptualised as something of identity (We do NOT believe in the concept of 'gender identity'. nor do we support the medical/pharmaceutical industry which revolves around the idea that sex roles are something innate).

- With these objectives we therefore call for the III ABOLITIONIST MARCH of prostitution, pornography, reproductive exploitation and sexual roles, online, 8 May 2021 and we expect this action to have an international resonance.

Women and the left: a toxic love
Betrayed, abused, humiliated. And finally supplanted by self-identified neo-women who are far more attractive and functional than the 'old' women by birth. Yet many among us cannot break away from the progressives who show in every way that they do not consider them. The same dynamics of a sick relationship
All loves are born and die, and when they end there is always the one who suffers the most, sometimes only one party, the one who loved sincerely, the other perhaps not, perhaps he was lying. And we women believed in love with the left side seriously, with all our hearts: naively we thought we were the favourites, we believed in promises, even those that clearly appeared false. Carla Lonzi already reminded us half a century ago that the left had sold us 'to the hypothetical Revolution', and even overseas the [...]

PD primaries: transfeminist Elly Schlein wins
The young leader launches her OPA and wins it. By making the Democratic Party a woke formation, in line with western progressivism: di-rightism, free gender identity, uterus for rent, sex work. A challenge reminiscent of what is happening in Spain where radical feminism has divorced the Left
To begin with, congratulations to Elly Schlein and best wishes for her new post. Then the facts, as I see them. Elly Schlein's victory was a takeover of the PD: the vote in the gazebo, for the first time different from the one in the circles - also a historical novelty - shows that Schlein has mobilised the radical left to the limits of antagonism, as well as the 5 stars. She said it years ago: Occupy PD. Now she has done it. That she is supported by a major part [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]

The global abolition of sex
The law just passed in Scotland replacing sex with free choice of gender. The one being passed in Spain. And Germany's project. In her article in Newsweek, Kara Dansky also warns the United States about self-id. But from Great Britain, Sweden and Finland come signals in stark contrast: the game is still to be played.
22 December was a black day for gender critical feminism: in spite of lively protests outside Parliament, Scotland passed the law allowing gender self-identification or self-id -without exception for sex offenders who will be able to freely access women's spaces by identifying themselves as women. Also in Spain, the Ley Trans, which has a very similar structure, has passed the first step in the lower house and is on its way to final approval in the coming weeks [...].

The magic of JK Rowling! Who in trans-Scotland opens an anti-violence centre FOR ONLY WOMEN
In Edinburgh there was not a single anti-violence shelter that was not also accessible to men claiming to be women. And the main centre is run by a transsexual. Surprisingly, the writer founds and finances a space strictly for women only. Challenging Premier Nicola Sturgeon's transgender policies. And meeting the real needs of victims of violence
We have told you several times about JK Rowling's commitment to women's rights in Scotland, where Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon is pushing for the passage of a law that would introduce a 'super self-ID' (see here), a very liberal gender identity. Last year, even before the bill was debated, the appointment of a transgender man, Mridul Wadhwa, as chief executive of Edinburgh's leading anti-violence shelter, which of course would also welcome men who 'identify as women' in what [...]
