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 [...]

RU486 or abortion pill: myths, misunderstandings and business
Chemical abortion is sold as more free and self-determined, but it is not the solution for everyone: it is longer and more painful than surgery, sometimes less safe, and mostly serves to save the health system money, as the essay by three American feminists explains. Women must be guaranteed the right to be informed and to make an informed choice between the two options: here is a bill to make hospitals work
A few days ago we published 'When abortion matters to men'. In the post we mentioned the various methods of involuntary termination of pregnancy, including the abortion pill RU 486, also known as 'chemical abortion'. Chemical abortion is spoken of as a step forward in self-determination. Younger women in particular can get confused between 'morning-after' contraception (which must be taken within 72 hours of risky intercourse) and the abortion pill, with which pregnancy can be terminated up to the ninth week.

Women attacked from left and right: the ash on the head of the New York Times
As the organ of the liberals and woke culture, the great US newspaper has been undertaking a vigorous change of course for a few months now, admitting its own excesses and the misogyny of the new progressive course committed to wiping out women. While waiting for the self-critical wind to blow in Europe too
by Pamela Paul Perhaps it makes sense that women - complacent and pleasant-looking creatures, selfless and just as pretty - were the ones who finally brought our polarised country together. Because the far right and the far left have found the one thing they can agree on: women don't matter. The position of the right is best known, the movement has been aggressively dedicated for decades to depriving women of basic rights. Thanks also to two judges [...]

New England Journal of Medicine: abortion ban is a health catastrophe
The prestigious magazine raises the alarm: it will be mainly poor and black women who will pay the price of the Supreme Court ruling, driven back into abortion with serious health risks. Even the morning-after pill and even the IUD could be banned and prosecuted as abortifacient means
The US Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization represents an extraordinary reversal (...) Yet it was not unexpected. In the long and painful prelude to the decision, many states severely restricted access to reproductive health care. The fig leaf covering these restrictions was that induced abortion was a dangerous procedure that required stricter regulation to protect the health of women seeking such care. The facts belie this false rhetoric. The latest data available in the United States [...]

How they won the war against Roe
Failure to turn Roe v. Wade into law was the capital mistake of the American left, starting with Barack Obama. Abortion was an entirely secondary issue for trans-politics-absorbed liberals, who have spent years erasing the word 'woman' by renaming it as 'menstruator' and 'uterus carrier', rather than addressing women's rights
How did American pro-lifers win the war against Roe v. Wade? In the article of which we present you with extended excerpts, journalist Sarah Ditum explains how the Democrats' neglect and arrogance unwittingly helped set women's rights in America back 50 years. "When did it become certain that American women's right to abortion would be revoked? The Supreme Court's ruling that "Roe was terribly wrong from the start" leaked almost two months ago, [...]

US midterm elections: will women be decisive after the abortion ruling?
What will American women do now? Will they win solidarity among themselves, as they have always won in Italy over abortion? Or will they settle into opposing sides in a quasi-civil war? The November vote will be the first test. Women could form the strong core of that moderate front that cannot find political expression in the US
What will American women do now? Will they win solidarity among themselves, as they have always won in Italy with regard to abortion, holding together Catholics and agnostics, left-wing and right-wing women in defence of law 194/78? Or will they settle into opposing camps, to put it mildly, the quasi-civil war underway in the United States? The midterm elections in November, with the Republicans as favourites, will be the first test: how many female voters, albeit [...].

Abortion: precisely what do pro-lifers want?
Today in Rome the Demonstration for Life will once again shout no to abortion, pending the Supreme Court ruling that could make it illegal in the USA. But the abolition of law 194 is unthinkable, there is no majority that would support it. What is the question then? What are the real goals of the movement?
Today in Rome the Manifestation for Life will take place. Net of the earthquake that is shaking the world of the so-called pro-lifers (a good report can be found here), today's square is strongly corroborated by the US wind and the fact that within a few weeks the American Supreme Court could confirm with a final ruling the outlawing of the interruption of pregnancy (we have spoken about it here). While respecting everyone's opinions, the position of Italian pro-lifers is [...]

Abortion in the USA: something doesn't add up
A "little hand" brings out in advance a Supreme Court ruling that would make the termination of pregnancy illegal. To whose advantage and why? With what consequences for the midterm elections, in which Biden was expected to lose? And what has gender-critical feminism, which some liberal observers want to blame, got to do with it?
A real political bombshell, thrown just a few months before the midterm elections, is the draft ruling of the US Supreme Court, which has fortunately leaked, that would make abortion illegal in the United States, overturning the historic Roe v. Wade ruling that made it legal in 1973. In the meantime, it is a draft; the final ruling is expected in June. It is also a question of who's 'little hand' it came from, and why. It could have been any of the conservative justices (Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito who would [...]

Matic Report: Europe pushes for gender identity
Overriding the sovereignty of member states, the European Parliament is producing indications on sexual and reproductive health: self-id, male motherhood, uterus for rent, assisted fertilisation for all, hormones for children, uterus for rent. The hand of Big Tech on our lives, for an anthropological mutation of the human being
Under the theme of women's health, the EU voted on the Matic Report at the 23 June plenary of the European Parliament on the state of sexual and reproductive health and rights. Women's health: but the words "women" and "sex" were replaced with gender. The Matic Report produces indications to be followed by the member states, indications that represent precise guidelines and constitute an interference with the jurisdiction of individual states on the management of national health systems or policy choices [...]
