International Women’s Day

Monday March 8th is International Women’s Day. It also opens the last week of the Beijing+15 Review by the Commission on The Status Of Women in New York, an event which has witnessed a range of subjects  being debated, condemned and exposed. Sadly the issue of China’s program of forced sterilizations has received no such interest, which is extremely disappointing as this constitutes a major violation of women’s human and reproductive rights.

During the conference Tibetruth has been very fortunate to cooperate  with some extraordinary women, who share a genuine concern that this subject is ignored by the CSW and some NGO’s. Every effort must be made to support and encourage that enlightened and committed minority, it is not a shortage of documentation or evidence, but a political and ideological resistance which must be challenged. A demand that the CSW return to basic principles and act with  integrity and compassion, by recognizing that these atrocities are a violent assualt upon women’s rights. If it is to retain any ethical or moral authority, with respect to women’s issues, it cannot continue to callously ignore China’s state engineered terrorism against women.

Tibettruth would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all our friends and supporters on Twitter and Facebook, who have been inspiring and generous in their action on this issue. To women-of-the-world, celebrate this important date, in doing so however please spare a moment to consider the plight of women in China and occupied nations such as Tibet and East Turkestan.
