The Ukraine: Win for Feminism as Women Finally Start Working in Coal Mines

Wow, this is really a big time win for women’s rights.

I’ve been fighting to send these stupid whores down into the mines for decades, and they’re finally going to be hauling 16 tons.

The Ukraine truly is on the cutting edge of revolutionary liberation.


After more than a thousand of its workers went to fight Russia’s invasion, a coal mining enterprise in eastern Ukraine suffered a huge staff shortage. Its answer was to allow women to work underground for the first time in its history.

Over a hundred took up the offer.

“I took this job because the war started and there were no other jobs,” 22-year-old Krystyna said.

For five months, she has worked as a technician 470 metres (1,542 feet) below ground, servicing the small electric trains that haul workers more than 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) from the lift shaft where they descend to the seams of coal.

The mine, a vast tower with shafts running more than 600 metres under the surface, juts out against the flat landscape and the grey November weather.

Reuters was asked by the mine’s management for security reasons not to give the exact location of the mine or use the surnames of those interviewed.

Krystyna only resolved to take the job after overcoming her fear of leaving her 4-year-old son, Denys, at home with her mother. Her hometown of Pavlohrad is 100 km (62 miles) from the front, but is often hit by Russian missiles.

The work is interesting but difficult, she said: the battery lids are heavy and the steam can be unpleasant. The pay is good, however, and she feels a sense of duty to stay and do her bit for those who have gone to fight.

Her beloved older brother worked in the same mine. He joined the army two weeks after the start of the full-scale invasion, Krystyna said, adding that she worries greatly about him.

“Our boys were taken to the front, and now we need to support them: there is no one else to work in the mine now.”

Although some women worked in the mines before the war, they were barred from doing jobs underground by the government, which considered the work too physically demanding, a policy in place since the Soviet era.

After the wartime repeal of that ban, about 400 women now work underground at DTEK’s mines — although that is only 2.5% of the total subterranean workforce.

We need to get more of these bitches underground.

This is called “democracy values.”

Everything must be 50-50.

If we’re going to have 50% of the parliament vaginal, then we need 50% of underground mine workers vaginal.

It’s time for women to take their rightful place in dark holes.
