The book project The health care we want. Women-driven care is the result of the work and experience of women in medicine in the long hanging time of the pandemic.

A endless round made up of basic and specialist care, of consolidated experience and experimentation, of 'cold bloodedness' and fragility, in which their presence made the difference. After the first phase of the lockdown, with the ineffectiveness of the directorates, the uselessness of the management pyramids, and the absence of a long view of politics, we analysed the criticalities, and raised our eyes to the need to change the model of governance of the NHS.

The healthcare we want it is not a request, it is a project that we ideally send to the Next Generation EU. It aims at structural changes, respectful of those who do the work, envisaging realistic paths to support the new generations. Its strength lies in the extraneousness to the liturgies of powerin the meeting and in the exchange between women in the face of illness, emergency, the unpredictable.

We framed in 3D thehospital, the city, the neighbourhood, transport, green areas, communication difficulties between territories (General Medicine, advice centres, RSAs) to think about the government with which we should rebuild the health of the future, prevention, work organisation, relationships. Thus, in based on expertise and experience, with the contribution interdisciplinary of architects, psychologists, economists, philosophers, journalists, Throughout the various chapters we offer as many different perspectives:

-A different work organisation, that restores the value of carebecause this healthcare, even at the best of welfare, cannot be synonymous with well-being for women, nor for men.

-Society (and women carers) must come to terms with the unresolved issue of motherhood. compared to their being different before being equal. Priorities need to be reversed, re-established and the value (and not the cost) of the procreative dimension and caring. It is a talent that not everyone has, and which has held the country together during these terrible months.

-Women want to redesign care places as a function of people's entire life course. Together with the architects they require innovative structuresstarting with those for births, built in circular and non-hierarchical relationship with territorial centres and hospitals. Because it will be up to women to rebuild the continuity between health and illnessbetween care and wellbeing, between territory and hospital, between life and death.

-Finally, the question that runs through the whole work: "One can imagine a alternative to the current liberal governance?". Because even the so-called 'managerial' aspect needs ad hoc training in order to be able to show female orientations. Women's governance in health care goes through specific transformative processes. This is the only way to authority.

Women can govern health care while remaining true to themselves. This is the real challenge for a future that is already here, in which it will be predominantly women who will ensure health for all.

Born of a surrogate mother
Olivia Maurel, 32, was born to a surrogate mother and today she is fighting on the front line against the practice, which she describes as 'atrocious' and 'monstrous'. She always knew something was wrong with her family. She suffers from depression, has had problems with alcoholism and has attempted suicide several times. Only recently has she discovered the truth about her origins and that she suffered the trauma of abandonment. "To no child," she says, "should what happened to me ever happen again."
Commercial or 'altruistic' surrogacy must be abolished. These are the words of Olivia Maurel, born in December 1991 in Kentucky by traditional surrogacy (i.e. in which the oocyte also belongs to the 'surrogate mother', ed.), who recounted her experience in a conference at the parliament of the Czech Republic. Today, married with two children in Cannes, 'proud to be a feminist' as we read on her X page, she fights against surrogacy. Her testimony, very valuable as there are still very few [...]

Canada: gender critical nurse risks her job
Amy Hamm works in a psychiatric ward and is under investigation for promoting women's rights based on sex and child protection online. The BCCNM, the body that regulates the nursing profession, intends to suspend her unless she participates in a re-education programme but Amy opposes this: the hearing is underway. US journalist Megyn Kelly interviewed her
Canadian nurse Amy Hamm - one of the founders of the non-profit coalition Canadian Women Sex Based Rights (caWsbar) - works in an acute psychiatric ward specialising in mental health and substance use. Amy risks losing her nursing licence and her job because she allegedly promoted women's sex-based rights and child protection online. In recent years, Amy has been the subject of an investigation by the British Columbia College of Nurses & Midwives [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Lesbian motherhood: open letter to Kathleen Stock
The gender critical philosopher says she is concerned about the rights of lesbian mothers being denied 'by the Meloni government'. But it was the judiciary and not the government that decided that only biological mothers can appear on birth certificates. In order for the law to recognise sexual difference in procreation, it is necessary for homosexual women to break the front with wealthy gay males who resort to surrogacy: homogeny is just ideology
We have been following closely and sisterly the story of Kathleen Stock, gender critical philosopher, author among others of Material Girls: Why Reality Matters for Feminism (Little, Brown Book Group, 2021) and former lecturer at the University of Sussex persecuted by transactivists: we have told her story here. Together with Martina Navratilova and Julie Bindel Stock she recently founded The Lesbian Project with the aim of reaffirming the specificity of lesbian identity. The aim of the project is 'to stop the disappearance of lesbians in the rainbow soup and to give [...]

The 'right' to have a slave: Hagar and the womb for rent
For days, the supporters of the GPA have been jubilantly spreading the 'news': even God allows a woman to bear children for others, as the biblical account of Sarah -wife of Abraham unable to conceive- and her servant Hagar who lent her womb shows. So today, too, temporary slaves are being claimed: a real ethical and political short-circuit. And an autogoal. Also because the Genesis account should be read in its entirety
For days on social media, the supporters of the womb for rent, in particular many LGBT+ activists and their supporters, have been reviving the story of the slave girl Hagar and her son Ishmael (Genesis 16 and 21) to support the lawfulness and goodness of their cause. The meaning would be: even God allows a woman to bear a child for others. So: nothing wrong with our claim. In fact, we too are entitled to have female slaves. A logical, political and ethical short-circuit. They do not know [...]

Escaping trans madness
'I want it to be known that there is hope. Young people with 'gender dysphoria' and their families can be helped with a psychological course,' writes American psychiatrist Miriam Grossman in her latest book. Explaining in detail and empathically her therapeutic proposal. And indicating in the hammering propaganda of the transcult the most insidious obstacle
Miriam Grossman is an American psychiatrist. The following is an edited extract published by Gender Clinic News of her new essay Lost in Trans Nation: A Child Psychiatrist's Guide Out of the Madness. It is a very interesting and 'empathetic' read, especially for those families facing the problem of a teenage daughter/daughter with 'gender discomfort'. James sports a scruffy beard. Sarah wears skirts and doesn't bother with pronouns. Taylor wants to talk about college, not the [...]
