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 [...]

Italian Taliban
4 feminicides in 24 hours: Taliban not only in Afghanistan. Everywhere in the world one sex oppresses the other, and violence is a function of domination. Let us not think of the Afghan sisters in terms of 'us' and 'them'. The struggle for women's freedom is one
4 feminicides in 24 hours. Four women killed by men close to them - husbands, fathers, boyfriends, ex- because they were women. A mother and a daughter in Carpiano, near Milan. A wife in the province of Bologna. A girl killed by her ex-boyfriend in Aci Trezza, in the province of Catania. The chronicle details are useless if not to confirm, once again, the ineffectiveness of the protection measures: the dismissed do not go away, the denounced on the loose are enraged, the alarms launched by the [...].

Zan bill: the misogynistic hatred of those who want an anti-hate law
A very powerful, fierce, atavistic feeling, says feminist Anna Bonforte Papale. She has been bullied and insulted for days just for mentioning a Constitutional Court ruling against self-certification of gender in a debate. We have all experienced this. Zan is not yet law -if it ever will be- but censorship is already underway. And it is above all women who must keep silent
What is happening to feminist Anna Bonforte Papale (whose FB post we republish almost in its entirety) has happened to many of us many times. In this case, Bonforte has been the object of misogynistic bullying for days simply for having reported during a debate on the Zan bill (in the photo, Bonforte on the right) the passage of a Constitutional Court ruling, the 180/2017, which states: "it should be excluded that the only voluntary element can have priority or exclusive importance for the [...]

Stop European funds for artificial womb. A petition
Funded with European funds, almost 3 million euros, a research project in which the Politecnico di Milano is also involved. The stated aim is to save premature babies. But the real goal is the biobag for human gestation
European research into the development of the so-called ARTIFICIAL Womb is under way under the leadership of the University of Eindhoven (Netherlands). Project coordinator Prof. Guid Oei (Eindhoven University of Technology) said in a press release: "Our goal is to help very premature babies survive the critical period of 24-28 weeks with our artificial uterus... If a foetus develops in an artificial womb, its chances of survival increase day by day. If we are in [...]

In the Zan bill an additional weapon for violent men
The law is also against 'misandry', Zan keeps repeating, using a term invented by violent males. There is a serious risk for women: if PAS is not enough, they will find themselves accused by their ex-boyfriends and their lawyers of a new false crime.
Feminism's criticism of the Zan bill, in addition to the central issue of gender identity, also includes the inclusion of misogyny among the behaviours that can be sanctioned as hate crimes. The term 'misogyny' does not appear in the text, but that of 'sex'. To be precise, it speaks of 'Measures to prevent and combat discrimination and violence on grounds of sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability'. Those who have closely followed the drafting of the text will know [...]

Zan: his law is also against "misandry" (video)
Beastly Sunday. After learning that ILGA, the largest LGBT network in the world (1614 associations in 158 countries, including Italy) in a statement defined as abusively "feminist" requires the lowering of the age of sexual consent for minors (see here), we had to hear Mr Zan say that his bill against homobitransphobia etc. is also "against misandry", a term that has no counterpart in reality and that is part of the paraphernalia of violent misogynists organized. This is how it went. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Seguendo […]

Letter from a young feminist to Zan and the PD
By all means (social media, email), we tried to talk to Alessandro Zan, the first signatory of the bill on homobi-transphobia, misogyny and ableism, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies and is waiting to be examined by the Senate. We invited him to take part in a Zoom debate to present our reasons and listen to his. We offered him interviews to be published in the daily press. Zan has never given the slightest hint of a response, and this is quite serious for an elected parliamentarian who, in order to legislate [...]

Feminism and Zan law
In these hours, the LGBT+ world is mobilising to ask the Senate Justice Commission to schedule the Zan bill against homobitransphobia, misogyny and ableism, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies. Arcilesbica has drawn up a number of proposed amendments, without which, it says, "there is a risk of serious breakdown". These, in brief, are the proposals addressed to the centre-left senators. - in the definitions in art.1, use the clear terms of "sex, gender stereotypes, sexual orientation, transsexuality", instead of the current ambiguities (sex, gender, orientation [...]

Sarah Everhard case: more and more women killed by men, but liberal feminism thinks of male and trans rights
Never as much as in these days Italian women should feel close to British women: the feminicide of Sarah Everard, 33 years old kidnapped and killed for whose death a policeman, Wayne Couzens, has already been arrested, has made the vase of oppression, abuse and male violence against women and girls of all ages overflow (the number of feminicides in the UK is similar to the Italian one: on average a woman killed because she is a woman every three days). The remains [...]

Feminophobia: new word, old fear
One of the achievements of women in recent years is to have finally obtained that the violence against them, which we see and are sadly told in the news every day, that of their murder by partners, husbands, fathers and brothers, was recognised by the name of feminicide. The feminicide is born precisely from the cultural idea all male, but of which they have convinced us since time immemorial, that the woman is nothing more than a female (etymology: [...]).

Why Italian feminism does not support the Zan law against homotransfobia
We feminists note that we have succeeded in making it clear that the expression "gender identity" is not admissible, as is also shown by the request of the Committee for Legislation made to the House Committee on Justice (and ignored). We now expect the debate in the Senate to go in the direction we have indicated: to replace the concept of "gender identity" with a clearer and more unequivocal "transsexuality".NO TO "GENDER IDENTITY "All over the world "gender identity" is brandished as a weapon against women. Gender identity [...]
