(en) Italy, FDCA, Cantiere #25 - MARCH LOT - For the emancipation of women - For the liberation of humanity - Giuliana Magli (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 15 May 2024 09:01:37 +0300

Let's hope she's female! ---- This is the wish that I address to all of us and with which I want to begin this March 8th. ---- I LOT not only in MARCH, but also every day of the year. ---- As women our struggle is on many fronts, every day and every moment of our lives and whatever our work, only at home or very often both at home and outside. ---- As knowledge workers we have an even greater responsibility to educate for the emancipation of women, because this represents the liberation of humanity. ---- A free woman will never exist if there is not a horizontal society, rather than a vertical and authoritarian one, that is, a society of FREE AND EQUAL.
The woman is the most exploited among the exploited, furthermore she is the last of the last even though she is the OTHER HALF OF HEAVEN.
Precisely for this reason, Woman knows well that if she wants to emancipate herself she must build a social model without the domination of Man over Woman, nor of Woman over Woman.
Therefore female emancipation must take place at the hands of women themselves. From our own hand.
Contrary to what the current model preaches, citing for example the Fornero Law, which raised the retirement age for women to 67. If it is a master or mistress who exploits a bartender or a shop assistant, changing the GENDER of the addends does not change the sum, i.e. the exploitation.
As Beatrice Hastings, a radical writer and feminist thinker of the early twentieth century, wrote in her book "The worst enemy of a woman is a woman" not only when she exploits her but also when she judges her.
The woman becomes an enemy of the woman herself with her judgment, or rather her prejudice, impregnated by patriarchal visions. In fact, too often women prefer to comply with or realize that idea of woman that male society has pre-packaged for her: consequently she judges and isolates other women when she does not consider them adequate to this canon.
You therefore need self-awareness, you need to work together to change society and the relations of domination that govern it: only in this way will we arrive at real social justice.
"The emancipation of women will always be a vacuous verbal affirmation if the woman herself does not put her hand to it" (wrote Pietro Gori for a conference held in Buenos Aires on 25 November 1900 "Woman and the family"): so LET'S ACT!
Furthermore, "women have the interest and duty to worry... about the social question, detached from which feminism would be a vain academy."
It is not a history lesson but if we want to change the world at its roots, as educators and teachers, let's reclaim pedagogy, because it is the basis of the educational relationship, let's say YES to authority and say NO to authoritarianism.
Let's put in place a Pedagogy that speaks and reasons in the feminine, let's tell more stories of women who are almost absent in textbooks and perhaps of revolutionary women, as examples of struggle.
To name a few:
Lucy Parsons, woman, revolutionary trade unionist who already in the last century, precisely in 1905, founded the Industrial Worker of the World union: she is also known for having safeguarded the memory of the martyrs of Chicago, including her husband Albert, or of those who lost their lives, fighting for the eight-hour working day.
Or I think of the experience of the Mujeres Libres from 1936 to '39 in Spain, in the midst of the civil war: women who, starting from the observation that women were always the most exploited, fought to build a society without the domination of the person over the person.
And in 2024?
We must know and transmit the only true necessary skill, that is, knowing how to transform reality, therefore questioning everything with a fierce critical spirit and self-awareness.
We are in the square today too to help create a female society of FREE AND EQUAL!
Women free to manage their own bodies
Free women aware of choosing motherhood or not
Women free to Be
Women free to fight as women, for women, with women...
not just March 8th!
