This History must end
War is not an invention of women. War reduces us to prey and makes us dumb things. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace. Peace is not the interval between one war and another. Peace is not helplessness but an active force that regulates relationships and settles conflicts. We demand that rebellious children recognise their mother's authority and shirk the obligation of acts of domination and overpowering
'War has always been the specific activity of the male and his model of virile behaviour'. Carla Lonzi, Manifesto of Women's Revolt, 1970 War is not our invention, nor is that desperate form of war that is terrorism. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace, it disorients and divides us, but we are not allowed any other movement than to seek refuge in an impossible extraneousness. We recognise ourselves with pain in the 'enemy'. [...]

Vladimir Putin and 'gender freedoms'.
His 'spiritual' war on gender and the corrupt West is just propaganda. Most Westerners are against self id and trans-industry, which is as much (glittery) patriarchy as his own, hungry for power and money.
In his horrifying speech, which was picked up by the newspapers, Vladimir Putin not only called the alleged traitors of Russia, i.e. anyone who says no to the war - including many courageous women such as the journalist Marina Ovsyannikova, the fashion influencer Belonika-Veronika Belotserkovskaya, Yelena Osipova, an elderly woman arrested for expressing her demand for peace, and many others - Vladimir Putin also spoke of a West weakened and weakened by its softness, including so-called 'gender freedoms'. To the theme [...]

Against war, finding words
We invite you to share your thoughts on the situation in Ukraine, removing them from the battlefield of social networks. Words to help us put order back into the huge mess that is war, to find a sense that has been lost. Send us your texts
War is an absolute loss of meaning, the replacement of words with violent gestures. Keeping words alive, investing them with trust, giving birth to new ones is a very precious work that can stem the destruction. Not so much and not only the words that serve for diplomacy and negotiation. Above all, the words that help us put order back into the huge mess that is war, to find the sense that has been lost. Not the words of the flames on social networks, which force us to take [...]

Manifesto of Russian feminists against the war
As Russian citizens and feminists, we condemn this war. Feminism as a political force cannot be on the side of a war of aggression and military occupation. The feminist movement in Russia fights for the weakest and for the development of a just society with equal opportunities and prospects, in which there can be no room for violence and military conflict.
On 24 February, at around 5:30 a.m. Moscow time, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a "special operation" on the territory of Ukraine to "denazify" and "demilitarise" this sovereign state. This operation had been in preparation for a long time. For several months, Russian troops had been moving to the border with Ukraine, but the authorities of our country denied any possibility of a military attack. We now know that this was a lie. Russia has declared war on its neighbours. [...]
