On the other hand, we cannot seriously think that the derailment to the right of many countries, and the stolid and lasting falling in love with “strong men” is without consequences, or premises, and does not touch that uncovered nerve, that gray area: women and their rights. And for a country that, finally, got rid of a well-known male chauvinist (the one who claimed, I remind you, that women “have to be grabbed from there”) and even has a vice president, black in addition (but this certainly does not reset disparities and inequalities, starting with salaries …), there are still too many presidents-bosses around, and, by now we know it well, it is a kind of infallible theorem: every form of racism, obscurantism, closure is always accompanied by as much dislike for women’s rights and the principles of equality. Without exception.
Thus, the women who are always asked the highest price of everything, the women who in this tragic year have lost their jobs three times more than men, and have taken the weight of the world on their shoulders at least twice as much, taking on themselves. every kind of care and assistance – of the sick, the frail, of children in prison and in Dad – today also had to attend this magnificent curtain, wanted and designed to have the strength of an apologue (no, it is not simple rudeness: it is a political act, and serious).
