Back issue: International Women's Day

Statement from the Sinn Féin Women's Department

On this International Women's Day 1982, Sinn Féin Women's Department salutes all women in Ireland and abroad. The war in Ireland is a people's war. It is a war against a colonially imposed partition and ensuing divisions and inequalities, a war for national liberation and socialism.
In this war tremendous suffering has been borne by Irish women, be they mothers, wives, political activists or Volunteers in the armed struggle.

The Sinn Féin Women's Department supports all agitation against the oppression of women - but it also stresses the necessity of a victory in the anti-imperialist war and the overthrow of the capitalist system in order to achieve the complete liberation of women.

We send our greetings on International Women's Day to our sisters struggling in other countries for justice and freedom.

Ireland's struggle liberates women, women's struggle liberates Ireland.
