Italian women should never feel closer to British women than they do these days. feminicide of Sarah Everard, 33-year-old kidnapped and murdered for whose death a policeman has already been arrested, Wayne Couzens, made the vase of male oppression, abuse and violence against women and girls of all ages overflow (the number of feminicides in the UK is similar to that in Italy: on average, a woman is killed because she is a woman every three days).

Sarah's remains were found about 60 kilometres from London, and her end tells of what can happen to you, in 2021, if you are a woman and dare to walk down the street when it is dark. La vigil on Saturday evening in Clapham Common, in south London, turned into a protest when the police officers called the crowd to respect anti-Covid rules and then forced them to evacuate. The women present replied that they were afraid to go home alone.

"Shame on you', 'Leave them alone', 'Arrest yourselves' shouted the protesters at the officers brutally handcuffing and arresting women who did not intend to carry out the orders (the images here). The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan expressed his concern about the behaviour of the police and promised the 'new'.initiation of an investigation.

Sarah's case has led to an overflow of blood: the UK government will have to re-evaluate its anti-violence laws and policies. But the first step is already a misstep: a consultation launched to quantify violence against women and girls targets women 'of all genders'. A term, 'gender', which risks making any fight for women's freedom futile. We have already seen the disconcerting Italian 8 Marchthe 'feminist' demonstrations of Not One Less (see here), so feminist as to be conducted by men, even to the point of silencing with squadron methods women committed to raising their voices against prostitution, pornography and surrogacy.

Italian liberal feminism is willingly blind to and complicit with patriarchy. The fight is for the multiplication of genders, for the affirmation of theories, such as 'free gender identity' and 'free sex work', which have nothing to do with women's rights. The rights of men and transgender people are defended using unproven theses: the most popular one is that transgender people are the most oppressed in the world, when the news and statistics tell the contrary (see here)

Women are the most endangered human beings in the worldit is women who urgently need measures to defend their dignity as adult female human beings, as workers, as mothers.

Between one feminicide and another, between one maternity dismissal and another, between one rape and another, between one case of abuse/harassment and another, liberal feminism persists in intercepting oppression in places where it simply does not exist. And women, unfortunately, are once again left alone. Ignored, forgotten, victims of a succession of violence and misogyny that shows no sign of stopping.

It must be acknowledged: beyond all the "not all men"swirling around on social networks, The worst enemies of women, as the feminicide of Sarah Everard once again shows, remain men.

Israel 7 October: Appeal for recognition as mass feminicide
The women victims of the Hamas attack were not killed like all other civilians: they were exposed naked, raped, brutalised, humiliated, decapitated, their bodies burnt and torn to pieces. "We wanted to dirty them," say the terrorists. The violence against these women meets the definition of mass feminicide: from France a petition to international NGOs

Warning daughters is politics
Against sexual violence and rape, education of young men is still called for. While teaching young women how to protect themselves and sounding the alarm about early sexualisation and the risks of substance abuse is seen as discriminatory and re-victimising. Every mother feels she has to do this but is blamed for it
If feminism is 'starting from oneself', it is from me that I want to start, from what I felt after the horrible murder of young Michelle in Primavalle (in the photo) seeing two women holding up signs (professionally made in some professional print shop, not in marker pen on bristol cardboard) where it was peremptorily reiterated that it is not girls who need to be protected, but boys who need to be educated. Mantra that is repeated to us in every case of rape, the appeal to [...]

Telling about sexual harassment
A very participative research conducted by the Milano-Bicocca University and recounted in a book edited by Chiara Volpato investigates the issue in depth, revealing that harassers are in most cases known men who are part of the family, friendship and work circle. That harassment renews and reinforces the device of domination. And that -as in the case of sexual violence- the mechanism of self-blame on the part of the victims is a constant in their experiences.
The book "Telling sexual harassment. An empirical investigation' edited by Chiara Volpato (Rosenberg & Sellier, 2023) stems from the need expressed by many female students at the University of Milan-Bicocca to thoroughly investigate the phenomenon of sexual harassment. Chiara Volpato, lecturer in Social Psychology at the aforementioned university, enthusiastically accepted the proposal. The research team prepared a questionnaire that was distributed within the University and the first data that emerged was the very high and unexpected number of women [...].

Legislation against violence against women should talk about sex and not 'gender identity': open letter to the European Parliament
Violence against women will not be combated if the texts of laws and treaties do not clearly refer to sex and not 'gender'. We join feminist and gender critical groups in an appeal to MEPs who will vote on the Commission's anti-violence proposal: write clearly in the text that women and girls are the female sex and leave no room for gender ideology
We, too, signed the letter to the European Commission on combating violence against women and domestic abuse drafted by WORIADS, a coalition of gender-critical citizens whose aim is to inform and raise awareness of the dangers of gender identity in the European institutions. The letter demands that European regulations on violence against women clearly recognise the category of biological sex. Below is the full text that will be sent to the members of the European Parliament who will vote on the [...].

Is violence structural to transfeminism?
Paola Pieri, from the group MaternaMente, recounts the violence she suffered in Florence from trans activists
Text by Paola Pieri, of the group MaternaMente. Last Thursday, 23 March, I went in front of the Careggi hospital, here in Florence, where a small garrison called by 'Resistance to the nanoworld' was being held, attended by Silvia Guerini, author of the book 'From the neutral body to the post-human cyborg, critical reflections on gender ideology'. Presidium called in such a place because it is where dozens of minors and others with 'gender dysphoria', treated with puberty blockers, hormones and other planned [...].

Italian psychoanalysts: stop puberty blockers
The Italian Psychoanalytic Society criticises puberty blockers for children: dangerous and experimental treatment. And joins gender critical feminists and parents in calling for scientific data and a public debate on the best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria
For years we gender critical feminists have been fighting against the scandal of the medicalisation of children in the name of gender identity. And for years we have been branded as fascists, reactionaries, bigots. Today at last an accredited Italian scientific society, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI), is taking a stand, joining us in raising a cry of alarm: the use of puberty blockers is an experimental treatment that has no solid scientific basis, and causes serious side effects. Above all, in most cases dysphoria [...]
