This is Georgia

Surrogacy, gender identity, motherhood: on many issues, the positions of the leader who now looks to the premiership coincide with those of feminism, snubbed by the left. What to do in the face of this challenge? Can the women's movement dialogue with the right?

Giorgia Meloni could become the first woman prime minister in our country.

She no longer hides her ambition, and if she does the right things - or rather, if she doesn't do the wrong things - by next spring, and if she manages to escape the friendly fire burstsno less intense and insidious than the enemy's, will be able to achieve its goal, having only herself to thank as well as the mistakes of his opponents: no one has co-opted her -see here- she has no taskmaster to answer to, she has done everything on her own, with intelligence and determination.

There are many variablesstarting with the possibility that the centre-right does not present a united front this time. elections. The evolution of the ukraine situation and even the result of the elections of midterm in November in the United States, which could see the Biden administration in serious trouble: the American Republicans are looking at Meloni with interest and appreciation But the road is now outlined and the Fratelli d'Italia Programme Conferencenot surprisingly organised in Milan and open to 'external' contributions, formally kicked off the game.

As far as Carla Lonzi was very clear against "Marxism" which "sold us to the hypothetical revolution".and although the dialectic between the women's movement and the left has always been rather complex, there can be no doubt that Historically, feminism is rooted in a left that was the first to take on the so-called 'women's question', by opening up to the inclusion of women in politics and parties, including right-wing parties: feminism has paved the way for them too.

For some time, however, the left has broken off its interlocution with feminism -in particular with feminism gender critical- dumping women as old and obsolete subjects in favour of new and postmodern ones clients in the horizon of sexual fluidity, proceeding to more inclusive up to dateThe equal opportunities offices in the institutions are now mainly dedicated to LGBT rights.

Closed doors, impatience, refusal of dialogue on all sensitive issues, from the Zan bill, which the PD has in recent days resubmitted as it stands to the Senate, to theuterus for rentWith a few exceptions -Stefano Fassina, Valeria Valente, the mayor of Bergamo Giorgio Gori- it is considered an acceptable practice, despite the fact that at the time we had laboriously managed to extort the no of the former PD secretary Zingaretti, and also that of Roberto Gualtieri, current mayor of Rome, who then, in perfect coherence, appointed as responsible for rights The Queen of Gender Marilena Grassadonia, honorary president of Famiglie Arcobaleno.

But also on non-sensitive - in fact very sensitive - topics such as the war on motherhood which largely explains our formidable denatality, the attention of the left has long been scarce, intermittent and poorly focused.

It was a blow to the heart to hear Giorgia Meloni state that "The real goal of gender ideology is not the much-vaunted fight against discrimination, nor is it overcoming the difference between male and female. The real undeclared objective is the disappearance of the woman as a mother. Eugenia Roccella explained this with extraordinary lucidity and power," he added, "which opened my mind to something I had not fully focused on. The indifferential individual that gender theory tends towards is not so indifferential, he is male. Man can be everything today: father, mother, male, female, the words most censored by political correctness are woman and mother. It is female identity that is under siege because the extraordinary symbolic power of motherhood is being destroyed.".

And again: see you take a stand in support of the British lecturer Kathleen Stock -dwhose case we have written about many times-"feminist and lesbian who was forced to leave her chair at the University of Sussex" because of persecution by transactivists. "The first victims of gender ideology are women, whatever their sexual orientation. Is it possible that the single thought does not understand this?".

Are you aware of such a statement by a left-wing MP?

And seeing you sign a proposed law on surrogacy -may soon be scheduled in the Chamber of Deputies- that coincides with our request to make it a universal crime - a proposal rejected by the PD and Leu.

We are also certain that on many other issues - starting with the tragedy of the girls and boys gender nonconforming early hormone therapies, unprecedented medical scandal- Meloni would support our battle.

So what to do?

What position to take in the face of the irresistible rise of what most of us consider to be a political adversary but who on a large package of issues - those which, in essence, outline the transhuman project - could promote and support our agenda in full. from a position of considerable strength - never so much for a woman in the institutions?

Questions that cannot be further delayed. Together with another one: who will we vote for in the next general election? With which forces do we have the possibility to interact effectively, helping to shape the agenda?

For those of us - not many, but there are some - who support the right, there can be no doubt: Giorgia's challenge must be supported. But what about the others? They can continue, in coherence with their own lives, to support a left that has literally wiped them out?

Here I begin to say my hope and wish: that those of us who share these objectives may wish to do so. freely run for office in all forces of the parliamentary arc, creating an effective informal network. We can no longer afford not to have interlocutors within the representative institutions. The challenge is very difficult, it requires that we find the strength to bargain with the parties for certain positions and then to support them. But more than once we have been able to face seemingly impossible challenges, and it is good to equip ourselves to try.

As for Giorgia: if it knows how to win its political challenge, keep itself open to dialogue and try to 'entangle' it in the network. As we are seeing, on so many issues, there will be no struggle.

'Destroy women's rights': JK Rowling against the Scottish premier and her trans law
As in Spain, feminism in Scotland fights against a law wanted by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon introducing gender self-determination without any medical diagnosis and lowering the age for access to 16. And this time too, the Harry Potter author stands by women, girls and children
JK Rowling takes a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads 'Nicola Sturgeon, destroyer of women's rights' to support women protesting in front of the Scottish Parliament against the controversial gender recognition reform bill wanted by Scotland's First Minister. Activists from For Women Scotland gathered in front of the Scottish Parliament this morning for a demonstration against the bill promoted by Sturgeon, which would make gender self-determination easier - we have [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

US, gay couple sues: surrogacy is a 'right', must be paid for by health insurance
The two men's claim aims to have the fact that they do not have a womb recognised as a 'disability': an absurd, envious and revealing claim. If they win in court all over America insurance companies and employers would have to reimburse gestations for other for men
A gay couple filed a lawsuit in New York labour court demanding that their employer-provided insurance company pay all the costs of the surrogate uterus for them, in order to ensure 'equal access to fertility treatment'. For all intents and purposes, they are demanding that a gay male couple become a protected category under the law because they are both without a womb and without access to one. If they win the case, in all [...]

Girls removing their breasts
Transactivist propaganda invites girls uncomfortable with their female form to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy. The same misogynistic violence as the traditional 'breast ironing' practised in Africa. In the UK, the publicly funded charity Mermaids is under indictment for sending binders to teenage girls against parental advice.
Breast ironing is a horrible practice still in use in some regions of Africa, particularly in Cameroon. It involves the destruction of the breasts of adolescent girls by red-hot instruments -old irons, spatulas, stones or shells- and is generally practised by the adult women of the family. The purpose is to make the girls less attractive in order to save them from rape and early pregnancies that could tarnish the honour of the family group. The practice causes serious damage to the health of teenage girls, [...].

Giorgia's father
Stigmatised also from the left is Rula Jebreal's vulgar attack that places the blame for an unreliable and absent father on Meloni. Absence that may rather offer a key to her political rise to control of a male party. And also her focus on motherhood
In her vulgar attack, stigmatised by the right and the left, Rula Jebreal claims -on the basis of a Spanish press scoop- that 'Meloni's father is a notorious drug trafficker/convicted criminal who has served time in a prison' when she 'states that asylum seekers are criminals who want to replace whites' (again for the record, Meloni has announced that she will sue Jebreal for attributing this statement to her). The right-wing leader has never made any secret of her abandonment [...]

Feminism and the Right
In response to Julie Bindel, who considers the wall erected by the transactivist left but also the risks of an alliance with the right: in Italy, the historical novelty -a right-wing woman premier, Giorgia Meloni- further complicates the picture. What to do then? What is happening in Spain over the horrible Ley Trans perhaps points to a good way forward for everyone
Julie Bindel and Harvey Jeni take the bull by the horns: given that for too long there has been no possibility of dialogue with the left, can radical and gender-critical feminism look to the right without taking risks? This is a theme that we in Italy are well aware of and that agitated the entire election campaign that ended with the landslide victory of a right-wing woman, Giorgia Meloni, who has never declared herself a feminist. The fact that today the right in Italy is [...]
