What is the text about? What findings emerge? What are women in the world saying? We ask Elizabeth Miller who [...]

We women, the 'Privileged
Transactivism defines being born a woman as a 'privilege' that must also be open to those who have not had this unspeakable good fortune. It's the old envious story, or patriarchy. But talking about privilege is a step forward in clarity. If the world needs women more and more, then the real women will be 'them'.
There is something good here. In these years we are resisting the invasion of being a woman by men. In reality it is just the latest figure in the old envious story of all time, or patriarchy. Men have always wanted to appropriate the being-woman and her creative power, exploiting women's bodies in every way and occupying the centre of the world. The good thing is that today language reveals this movement in all its clarity. Today a significant number of men are asking to [...]

Purpose of the veil: to show off what it conceals
Veiling is pornographic in itself. Because it highlights what it conceals: sex. And it divides women into good and bad. Liberals who speak of "choice" perpetuate a patriarchal practice of which gender identity is the ultimate expression.
There is one thing that Covid has proved: a masked society does not work. Supporters of the veil were immediately enthusiastic: "Yes, you see, the mask is like the burqa, but yes, it's the same, it's fun to feel more laïcard (secularist), what do you think?". But comparing surgical mask/full face veil is more or less like comparing a nose scarf on a cold winter's day and a burqa(...) Same with the statement that the Afghan burqa protects women from sexual harassment [...].

Italian Taliban
Four femicides in 24 hours: Talibans are not only in Afghanistan. Everywhere in the world one sex is oppressing the other, and violence is a function of domination. We cannot consider our Afghan sisters as "us" and "them". The fight for women's freedom is one and the same.
Four femicides in 24 hours. Four women were killed by men related to them - husbands, fathers, boyfriends, former partners - simply 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 former boyfriend, in Aci Trezza, in the province of Catania. The details of such events are useless if not to confirm, once again, the inefficacy of the measures of protection: those who should [...]

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 [...].

Omissis on Malika
Malika's story is horrifying, that's for sure. When expressions like 'I'll cut your throat' run around in a family, things are going very badly indeed. These are probably common expressions when it comes to domestic violence. And violence against women is an incredibly widespread phenomenon. Only this time, unlike usual, the verbal violence was recorded and broadcast online and on TV. Malika Chalhy has a brother called Samir, her father is called Aberrazak (the origin is Moroccan). The [...]

With the 'right' to surrogacy, gays seek a place in patriarchy
Today, 27 January, the Constitutional Court is due to rule on the right of a male couple who have resorted to surrogacy to be recognised as both "fathers" of the child. The orientation expressed in 2019 by a ruling of the Court of Cassation in United Sections was to allow recognition at the registry office to the biological father only, leaving open for the (or the) partner the possibility of resorting to the institute of adoption in special cases, a procedure to be instructed at the Court [...].
