The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) extends its warm greetings and congratulations to the women of Kerala and to all the 176 social and mass organisations for the historic `Women’s Wall’ on January 1.

The women’s wall with over 55 lakh women participants cutting across caste/community divide and from all walks of life, gave a strong message of unity to uphold the values of the Kerala renaissance for women’s rights and social reform.

At a time when the communal rightwing forces led by the RSS seek to impose retrograde `manuvadi’ ideologies throughout the country, this women’s wall has a wider significance and will encourage a wider resistance to all such efforts.
