We would have liked to save you, Saman
No cultural relativism can justify the acceptance of religions or cultures in which women are subjected to men by law, in an odd citizenship. Feminism must be unequivocal on this point.
(in memory of Nadia Riva) Saman was killed by her family for refusing a forced marriage and for wanting to live as a non-Muslim Italian girl.

The left, the right, the veil
Senate President Maria Elena Alberti Casellati is a distinguished lady with a polite smile and a bombastic name. Politically, she is on the right. In other times we would have defined her as a conservative Christian Democrat. She is also a stranger to feminism, which did not prevent her, in her inaugural speech, from speaking firmly and non-rhetorically about the phenomenon of misogynistic violence. I happened to think of her again after the webinar on Veil and Freedom with Marina Terragni, Sara Punzo and Maryan Ismail. [...]
