Women's Revolutionary Law

In their just fight for the liberation of our people, the EZLN
incorporates women in the revolutionary struggle regardless of
about their race, creed, color or political affiliation, requiring
only that they meet the demands of the exploited people and that
they commit to the laws and regulations of the revolution.  As well
as, taking account of the situtation of the woman worker in Mexico,
the revolution incorporates their just demands of equality and
justice in the following Women's Revolutionary Law.

First--Women, regardless of their race, creed, color or political
affiliation, have the right to participate in the revolutionary
struggle in any way that their desire and capacity determine.

Second--Women have the right to work and receive a just salary.

Third--Women have the right to decide the number of children they
have and care for.

community and have charge if they are free and democratically
elected.

in their health and nutrition.

Sixth--Women have the right to education.

obliged to enter into marriage.
