We receive and publish in full the reflection of Giovanni Giardi:
hope from women in the European institutions?
Christmas holidays and the beginning of the new year in the name of unbearable clichés and little public attention to the dramatic problems of the world: 50 Nobel Laureates and the Pope remove cuts in arms spending, but global spending on war doubles over the years ( it would be enough to solve all the problems of poverty in the world); the candidate and former exponent of P2 Berlusconi dares to run as a candidate for the presidency of the Italian Republic, provoking the consequences of so many respectable people and a candidate for jurists; NATO wants to bring strategic weapons to Russia’s borders and she seeks nothing more to have an alibi to drag Europe into a catastrophe; there are people who, faced with a very serious epidemic, seem to prefer to ignore science and would like free behavior as in the times of the medieval plague.
How awful? Do not make judgments because they are complex problems, but perplexities and big concerns yes.
Locally, the frustration of hearing that the country has been dragged to ruin even by those who took money from the bank without giving it back, money that now we all have to pay without even knowing the names. Those who denounce these situations (eg Marino Cecchetti, Orietta Ceccoli, apart from the opposition) seem like prophets in the desert. What country are we? Why this silence?
A great satisfaction because in Europe the institutions have been entrusted to great women: will they be able to dare a change in the choices of international politics?
The reactions of Italian and San Marino women are one of frustrating comparison. The problem crosses the moment of waiting for the law due after the great result of the referendum for the decriminalization of abortion. No information is circulating, but as I said during the election campaign, the law must not only concern the specific problem of decriminalization, but that of conscious motherhood and, as Dacia Maraini continues to tell us, that of creating a more woman-friendly society. . Therefore a law, possibly with rules parallel to that on decriminalization, to create a more woman-friendly society: services, information, support and support for maternity and the education of males: a new culture that would also solve the problem of access to woman to politics and therefore to roles that are now the prerogative of males “.
