Comfort women for soldiers: Ciociare women also await justice
"Lying on the gutted pillows, still young, her skirt lifted up to her face, an ashen face framed by beautiful black hair. The blacks, big and thick, methodically worked that forcefully opened woman, now silent and inert, who had long since stopped moaning under the violent thrusts. There was no respite between one man and another. There were more than a hundred of them, with their trousers down and the rod in their hands, waiting for their turn. An officer took [...]

Feminism, sorority, friendship: the narrative of TV series about women
The year 2020 was the year par excellence in which the comparison and continuous reflection on television series became, from a happy art of conversation, a sure ground for communication and exchange. It was not difficult, thanks to the surplus time during the surreal spring and Christmas quarantine, to form a personal overview of what, series after series, emerges as a returning feminine value: friendship between women connoted with the immense power of the unrepeatable. Following the sociological cataclysm triggered by the [...]

How to pass off gender identity while pretending to talk about something else
As we have said many times, the real core of Zan's bill against homotransphobia is gender identity. The rest of the bill's contents count for much less. The legitimate request to protect the rights and dignity of homosexuals and transsexuals actually conveys the strong objective, namely gender identity in the direction of self-id, which is the free decision to choose one's gender regardless of birth sex and with a simple unilateral administrative act, at the registry office or at the notary. The [...]

Brains coming back (and wanting to stay): here's the task force we need
Reading Etty Hillesum (if you haven't already done so, do so) teaches us something decisive for life: even in the most tragic circumstances - for her it was absolute evil in the Westerbork detention camp, the last stop before Auschwitz - there is always something good somewhere. "I believe that you can get something positive out of life in all circumstances," she wrote. It is then a question of advertising it, of giving a hand to this good, of [...]

The little girl from Baressa. And her mother
Michela lives in Baressa, Oristano, and has a little girl. In July 2018, when she was not even 3 years old, the child was taken by the police who, on the basis of a judgment of exclusive custody, handed her over to her father, Michela's ex-husband, whom she accused of ill-treatment. The man lives in Viterbo, a long way from Baressa. Michela has not seen her daughter for some time. On Monday 11 January she will have to appear before the Court of Oristano to answer for the crime of child abduction. Here [...]

Irreparable harm: the new violence against girls and young women
Abigail Shrier is a freelance journalist who has recently written mainly for the Wall Street Journal. The idea for her book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters (Regnery Publishing, among the best books of the year according to The Times and The Sunday Times), an essay analysing the more than 3,000 per cent increase in gender dysphoria among teenage girls, came to her after she wrote an article about new legislation in several US states that requires the [...]

Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights
The Declaration reaffirms the rights of women and girls based on sex, against the discrimination we suffer from the replacement of the category 'sex' with 'gender identity'. The Declaration is one of our founding texts and has been signed by associations and individual women all over the world. Here you can read the text of the Declaration - in many languages - and sign it. Declaration re-affirms women and girls' sex-based rights, and challenges the discrimination we experience from the replacement of the [...]

Good' man: I'm talking to you
A lot of men tend to get defensive whenever the topic of male dominance comes up. "We are not all like that," they repeat in unison. They report anecdotes of their 'good deeds' towards women, claiming that they have never attacked them verbally and/or physically, that they have listened to them, that they have treated them as people. But is this enough? Of course not. First of all, it must be acknowledged that, regardless of their actions, men enjoy a privilege linked to the fact that they belong to the male sex, for [...]

The day of the Epiphany? Yes, the day of the Epiphany
Feminist Post makes its debut on New Year's Eve: we didn't plan it, you think. It's completely accidental, but maybe not - ironies are allowed anyway -. Befana (or Befanìa) is a popular mispronunciation of the Greek ἐπιφάνεια (epifáneia), which in turn comes from ἐπιφαίνω = I show myself, I present myself, I manifest myself. Well, we "manifest ourselves" today. Here we are. An auspicious and propitious coincidence: the Christian festival of Epiphany is much older than Christianity and closes the cycle of the solar year that is reborn [...]
