Resist the Tory war on women

Defend women's and domestic violence services

Get. Them. Out. The Tories have got to go. What other response can there be to the Tories' annihilation of the services needed by women fleeing domestic violence? This equates to murder by political decisions.

598 women were killed by men identified as current or former partners in England and Wales between 2009 and 2015.

An estimated 1.3 million women in Britain have experienced domestic abuse in the last year.

Women's Aid estimates that the move to Universal Credit, along with changes to funding formulas, will contribute to four in ten women's refuges closing.

They say that 17% of specialist women's refuges were already forced to close between 2010 and 2014. More than 1,000 women and children have been turned away from shelters in the past six months.

The Socialist Party opposes all cuts to the specialist services needed by women and anyone fleeing domestic violence.

For one thing, there isn't a lack of money. The Panama and Paradise Papers proved that.

Fund all services

We also say that Labour councils could fund these services and all public services by using their reserves and borrowing powers and by fighting to replace the Tories with a Jeremy Corbyn-led, anti-austerity government.

We will also need to build a movement to resist the attacks on such a government from the capitalists.

In Yorkshire, Socialist Party members are involved in the Save South Yorkshire Women's Aid campaign. The Labour council has 91 million in reserves but has refused to spend the thousands that are needed to keep this vital service open.

In Derby, Socialist Party members are involved in the campaign to defend the women's centre there.

We fight for a world free of inequality and sexism. A united working class-led struggle of all genders can fight the cuts, get the Tories out and transfer the power and wealth into the hands of the millions not the millionaires.
