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.

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 [...]

Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied
In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination
Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium. Deposed by the Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Sarah Schlitz (Ecolo/Verdi), the framework law for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop combat policies based on official statistics. And in [...]

A video every 10 minutes
The brutal murder of Alessandra Matteuzzi, hammered to death by her ex-boyfriend, is the perfect representation of every feminicide: the murderer is not someone who loses control, but one who restores it. Her death serves to restore the balance lost as a result of the abandonment. Violence is a function of domination. It's here that one must keep one's gaze to be able to stop it
The killing of Alessandra Matteuzzi, the Bolognese woman murdered by her ex with a hammer and an iron bench, is the plastic and perfect representation of the dynamics of every feminicide. Giovanni Padovani is not crazy, he is not a drop-out, he is a young man in perfect shape, integrated in the world, even a testimonial for campaigns against violence against women. In short, you would never have guessed it. Alessandra is subjected to constant and unprecedented harassment: she has to justify every movement, every breath, [...].

Carol, killed 5 times
The murderer, the mass media, a comedian: the overkill on Carol Maltesi's body was general. A mass BSDM game, a supplementary spectacle of the dead being torn to pieces. A snuff movie from life. After all, she was a porn star. She had it coming.
Carol Maltesi, the young woman brutally murdered and hacked to pieces by banker Davide Fontana, was killed five times. The first time, by the pornography industry -online and then also live shows- from which the girl had been captured during the lockdown to be able to provide for herself and her son, whom she had given birth to when she was just 20 years old. The second time by her tormentor, for whom we are looking for -as usual- reasons: he killed her [...].
