After Covid: notes for a new city. In view of the administrative elections
Next spring - more likely, because of Covid-19, next autumn - there will be a vote to renew the administration of many Italian cities: Rome, Milan, Naples, Bologna, Turin and many others. In other words, the places where we live, forge our relationships, have our closest affections, work, think and act. This time more than ever, with the need for transformative practices brutally accelerated by Covid and with the (rather moderate and insufficient) 'reformist' projects underway in the various cities, the local elections are [...]

The slaughter of children
The last two innocents killed at the hands of their father were 15 years old and 13 years old. It happened in the province of Padua and they tried to escape. He, the murderer, Alessandro Pontin, 49, killed himself after the massacre. He stabbed them in the throat and gave them no chance. He killed with brutal cruelty, like so many other fathers before him. The boys' mother, from whom the man was separated, had repeatedly asked for help, reporting that the father of her children [...]

Surrogacy and 'two fathers': our letter to the Constitutional Court, which will rule on 27 January
In an order - no. 8325/2020 - the Court of Cassation has once again asked the Constitutional Court to allow a child born of a surrogate mother to be registered in the civil register as the child of two fathers, the "biological" father and the other defined as the "intentional" father. The United Sections of the Court of Cassation had already clearly ruled against this possibility, but surprisingly, the First Section reopened the question and now we are waiting for the Constitutional Court's pronouncement, scheduled for 27 January. Court to which we [...]

The word 'woman' is already occupied
Menstruating people': I'm sure there is a term for these people'. With these words JK Rowling waded into the most fevered debate in contemporary society. Not even Covid-19 served to dampen the furore of the discussion about transgender people. As two worldviews collided, some fundamental truths that generations before were considered unquestionable were called into question. What does it mean to be a woman? What is it to be a man? How can we differentiate between them? On the one hand there is the belief in gender identity, [...]

FEMINISM IS NEITHER LEFT-WING NOR RIGHT-WING: IT STANDS ALONE
Feminism is neither right-wing nor left-wing. To anyone who doubts the continuing influence of the American Empire, the international response to Ruth Bader Ginsberg's death should give pause for thought. Twitter in Britain - always focused on American events - was immediately filled with feverish speculation about who might replace her on the US Supreme Court. Glasgow City's women's football team announced that they would put her name on a banner as a tribute to [...]

Why Italian feminism does not support the Zan law against homotransfobia
We feminists note that we have succeeded in making it clear that the expression "gender identity" is not admissible, as is also shown by the request of the Committee for Legislation made to the House Committee on Justice (and ignored). We now expect the debate in the Senate to go in the direction we have indicated: to replace the concept of "gender identity" with a clearer and more unequivocal "transsexuality".NO TO "GENDER IDENTITY "All over the world "gender identity" is brandished as a weapon against women. Gender identity [...]

2020: a historic year for gender-critical feminism
2020 saw many victories of common sense over trans madness. (...) Most people will agree that 2020 has been a lousy year, but for those of us on the frontline of the 'TERF wars' there have been huge gains against joyless gender fascists. It seems that the green shoots of reason are finally visible. In late 2019, JK Rowling tweeted her support for Maya Forstater, [...]

Why a magazine?
Why a magazine? First of all not to waste it! Social networks have brought us together, allowed us to get to know each other and organise political initiatives: they have been and remain precious above all for communicating quickly and keeping us networked. But they are also a place of extremely high and senseless conflict, where experiences and competences end up being flattened according to the dangerous logic of "one-value-one". The same fate awaits the contents: valuable contributions are homologated to insignificant posts and fakes, and destined to be burned [...].

Judith Butler: 'Calling them Terfs is right'. On conflicts in feminism
Thirty years ago, the now 64-year-old philosopher Judith Butler published a book that revolutionised popular perceptions of gender. "Gender trouble", the work for which she is best known, introduced the idea of gender as performance and raised questions about how we define the category of "women" and who feminism claims to be fighting for. Today, "Gender Trouble" is considered the seminal text in any bibliography of gender studies and its arguments have passed [...]

THE IRRESISTIBLE LADY MAISEL
Thinking, and thinking cheerfully in this complicated time, overwhelmed by two irresistible female protagonists: one, Miriam (Midge) Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), a young and well-to-do Jewish New Yorker lady from the Upper West Side who, after the trauma of her break-up with her husband who was convinced - mistakenly - that he was a great comedian, turns out to be -yes, she is- a terrific and irreverent comedian, a great stand-up comedian, almost the feminine of Lenny Bruce (to whom a poignant portrait is dedicated); and the other, Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein), the [...]
