Citizenship Income Reform: taking sexual difference into account

The employment situation and wage levels of women -with strong regional variability- are very different between women and men. This was also the case for income, which also had a positive effect on the birth rate. This is why changing the institution requires a careful assessment of the so-called 'gender impact': an 'equal' reform could have unequal effects according to gender

The need for a citizenship income reform is now recognised across the board, albeit with different approaches and solutions. The Meloni government has presented its plan in progress. But the consideration of what is called the 'gender impact' -that is, the evaluation of the effects of the reform on women- still seems insufficient, generally underestimated by analyses. In a social situation and in a labour market like the Italian one, where women are strongly disadvantaged both in [...]

Prostitution 'clients' know full well that they are committing violence

Research on sex buyers shows that men are fully aware that prostitution is violence, that criminal organisations keep women in fear and that there is no 'regulation' that holds. But they only stop if they risk a criminal conviction, as is the case in Sweden, Norway, Canada, France, Ireland, Israel and other countries that have introduced the abolitionist model. Otherwise, they continue to consider date rape as their right

by Julie Bindel Germany is known as the brothel of Europe. It is a hard-won title. With more than 3,000 brothels across the country, and 500 in Berlin alone, its sex trade is worth more than £11 billion a year. Prostitution, in all its forms, has been legal in Germany since the end of World War II. Recently, however, attitudes are changing. People and politicians are asking the government to take notice of the so-called 'pimp state' and [...]

Iranian Beauty

In Iran, female beauty becomes the lever of a real revolution: nothing like the mortification-commodification of bodies that is propagated as freedom in the West. The struggle to be able to be a woman reveals the'hypocrisy of the queer

It is now almost two months since the Iranian girls' revolt against the veil began, an irrepressible wave that every day produces new images, new content, a breath of fresh air compared to certain narratives about women in the Islamic world, but also a mirror that reveals how much of an artefact there is behind so many politically correct watchwords of intersectional feminism or transfeminism. First, the veil is not a free choice, nor is that feminist empowerment about which we have been bombarded by [...]

Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied

In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination

Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium. Deposed by the Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Sarah Schlitz (Ecolo/Verdi), the framework law for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop combat policies based on official statistics. And in [...]

The name of the premier

Giorgia Meloni is not a feminist. Her history is not this. She has not shared in the long battles over language, over declension into the feminine instead of the neuter-masculine. But language today is a battleground that structures the most important political issues. And it deserves further reflection on her part

Giorgia Meloni is not a feminist. That is not her story. No woman on the right or centre-right who has held important political office, from Thatcher to Merkel, has ever called herself a feminist. Hence the non-sensitivity to the feminine declination of office, to which feminism instead attaches importance. Even if Angela Merkel at the end of her long chancellorship, during a meeting with the writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, agreed to call herself a feminist. According to Alice Schwarzer, founder of the [...]

England: new guidelines for 'trans' minors

While Spain is about to approve the horrifying Ley Trans, which allows the transition of girls from the age of 12 even if their parents oppose it, the English health service closes once and for all with the so-called pharmacological 'affirmative approach' (puberty blockers) practised for years and points to psychological treatment as the priority route. And in Italy? For the Italian Society of Paediatrics, these drugs do not cause any problems and their effects are completely 'reversible', a fact denied by several studies

The English health service (NHS) has published a new draft of guidelines for the treatment of children with gender dysphoria (full text here), pending the results of the Cass Review, an independent enquiry commissioned by the British health minister and led by paediatrician Hilary Cass (see here), which will lead to a complete restructuring of services dedicated to gender non-conforming children. After the closure of the Tavistock clinic -which we told you about here-, NHS puts a definitive end to the so-called [...]

Women-containers: pro-life and pro-utero for hire see eye to eye

For one and the other, the female body must make itself available to 'produce' the unborn child by renouncing the possibility of choice once pregnancy has begun. But a new life only really begins when there is a maternal yes: a fact that is unattainable and unattainable by law. Otherwise the only possibility is compulsion.

At least three things can be said about the bill filed by Maurizio Gasparri to amend Article 1 of the Civil Code and introduce into our legal system the recognition of the legal capacity of the conceived 'with the intention of preventing voluntary abortion in any form, whether legal or clandestine'. The first: it is highly unlikely that the bill will reach parliamentary halls. The immediate consequence of its approval would be the substantial inapplicability of law 194 because abortion would in fact be tantamount to murder. None of the majority forces [...]

The symbolic is political

Giorgia Meloni's 'no' to Silvio Berlusconi's wishes has been described as a nemesis: a young woman who sinks the old leader -'dragon devourer of virgins' defined him as the 'ex-wife' - and does not shy away from friends and foes alike. An unexpected twist in our misogynistic politics. Although the future premier has never called herself a feminist

Pompous, overbearing, arrogant and insulting. And she shortly replies that she is not to be blackmailed. In short, to paraphrase another famous exchange, 'not at disposal'. The major newspapers have already spoken of nemesis. The Cavaliere put under by a woman much younger than him, Giorgia Meloni, who at 45 could be the first to lead a government in Italy: hard accounts with her father, after all, are part of her biography. On the opposite front, the [...]

Boldrini is wrong
In the name of bigenitoriality and ideological paritarianism, the PD parliamentarian proposes an amendment to Article 37 of the Constitution, which speaks of the relationship between mother and child as deserving 'special protection'. It would be a great 'constitutional' gift to the lobby of separated fathers supported in particular by the League. And it would increase the risks for mothers and children
Laura Boldrini announces her intention to immediately deposit in Parliament a series of proposals that she calls a 'rights package'. These include the idea of an amendment to Article 37 of the Constitution which states that 'A working woman has the same rights and, for equal work, the same pay as a worker. Working conditions must allow the fulfilment of her essential family function and ensure special adequate protection for the mother and child'. Boldrini's intent is [...]

'Destroy women's rights': JK Rowling against the Scottish premier and her trans law
As in Spain, feminism in Scotland fights against a law wanted by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon introducing gender self-determination without any medical diagnosis and lowering the age for access to 16. And this time too, the Harry Potter author stands by women, girls and children
JK Rowling takes a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads 'Nicola Sturgeon, destroyer of women's rights' to support women protesting in front of the Scottish Parliament against the controversial gender recognition reform bill wanted by Scotland's First Minister. Activists from For Women Scotland gathered in front of the Scottish Parliament this morning for a demonstration against the bill promoted by Sturgeon, which would make gender self-determination easier - we have [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

US, gay couple sues: surrogacy is a 'right', must be paid for by health insurance
The two men's claim aims to have the fact that they do not have a womb recognised as a 'disability': an absurd, envious and revealing claim. If they win in court all over America insurance companies and employers would have to reimburse gestations for other for men
A gay couple filed a lawsuit in New York labour court demanding that their employer-provided insurance company pay all the costs of the surrogate uterus for them, in order to ensure 'equal access to fertility treatment'. For all intents and purposes, they are demanding that a gay male couple become a protected category under the law because they are both without a womb and without access to one. If they win the case, in all [...]
