International Women Right Day 8th March: The Fight Of Beautiful Power

No matter if you are in Europe, in Mediterranean countries, or at the heart of the English-speaking world, in the United Kingdom or the United States, women have to work more to earn the same money as men. More unpaid 'duties' awaits them at home in many ways. Women, no matter what, if they are tired and overwhelmed, the care-related work is on them. The systems they live under refuse to carry out their power. Every year, the world, on March 8th, it’s celebrated World Women's Rights. A dedicated pink day is used to remember social, economic, and political conquests and make a point of many achievements to obtain (fight for) without forgetting discrimination and violence massively present.


In its modern conception that day, each state has created its traditions of celebrating the beauty and power of women even though it is not just that or it shouldn’t be! In Africa, Zimbabwe and Cameroon organize significant events. On the other hand, in Perú, celebrations time from which men are banned are prepared, such as the pollada, during which markets and stands are set up which, with the sales, support programs in favour of the female world issues. In Russia, it is typical to make fireworks displays, while in Vietnam, women share food in the workplace. In Italy, there are no particular conventions or traditions to follow. Still, generally, men gift their important female presences flowers, in specific mimosa, the symbol of delicacy and femininity, or women bake some cakes, usually in yellow colour so, with crème patissière, lemon, and strawberries.


Too many stereotypes still occur: they should be erased. Women are afraid to go out in a miniskirt or low-cut alone late at night and fear not only the rapist will notice them, provoking but also cat-calling. The social etiquette often attached to the vision of a specific type of clothing is often said when they would like to feel free to express themselves in respect of a person's personality. At the same time, the womanizing macho man is openly accepted and acclaimed. In the masculine and very closed and backward conception, women must devote themselves to raising children and worry about the house being clean and stopping. Why? Who has established this criterion? It is as if it weakened.


The best example is obtained by broadening the focus and thinking of the countries of the Middle East, such as Afghanistan, Iran, and many others. The bosses prefer women who have no intention of starting a family but who instead focus on their professional career – there more problems to deal with it maternity leave and children issue permission and adaption. Say it to Elisabetta Franchi's belief of the exclusion of working moms. With the same workload, duties, and skills, they are paid less than men.   


An interesting Netflix series named “Workin’ Mom”, each of six seasons episodes, shows their difficulties. The protagonists are four women: Kate, public relations manager of a well-known company and new mother who is ready to do anything to maintain her social status and her independence; Anne, a psychiatrist and mother of a 9-year-old girl with whom she is unable to bond; Frankie, a real estate agent suffering from postpartum depression, and Jenny, an employee of a high tech company, a new mother and wife of a screenwriter who works from home and wants to take care of the baby full time. All of them meet once a week in a support group for mothers and face the return to work after the period of maternity leave at the same time. The path towards a new balance between home and office is shown among breast infections, milk stains, unexpected pregnancies, nostalgia for one's independence, and a perennial sense of inadequacy.


Why consider them less than what they are? This is also carried over to political representation, the addition of women's quotas in the parliaments of various countries to give the possibility also to great women such as Angela Merkel, the former German chancellor. It will surely go down in history with the lousy style fall of the former president of the United States of America, Donald Trump. At the end of the stock photos, at the White House, at the request of the journalists present, the chancellor asks Donald Trump if he wants to shake her hand, but Trump does not respond, as if absent, keeping his hands palm to palm between his legs. We are sure that if Olaf Scholz had been there, the current German chancellor in office would not have ignored it but welcomed it.


The day of fight for women's rights has taken on a transformation in terms of meaning over the years. If in the past it was established as a day of reflection to highlight how far there is still to go for absolute equality in our society, therefore with a solid critical and combative intention, today it is associated by many people with an occasion to celebrate the women. This is usually done by men towards women with gestures often for their own sake, such as giving flowers or making speeches forgotten the day before, which they already forget the day after being pronounced. The flowers fade while the rights remain.


Female solidarity is acceptable, but why always remain steadfast in the position that the purely male-dominated conception has relegated us to? No one will ever give us anything. If we don't speak up, we will be taken for granted, but it’s essential to act for change, especially if we don't fight. It doesn’t mean taking power over men, but it can be good enough equally coexist. A more equitable distribution of tasks between parents would be excellent: better recognition of the time necessary to wean and dedicate oneself to motherhood; the parental leave voucher is not always a right established in the realities of the company.


Often the idea of public opinion is strongly conditioned by a particular television narrative that has been sexist for too long now - just think of how femicides are presented, which unfortunately exist, and this is right to be said but not with vice to stereotype and attribute clichés.


Global Gender Gap Report 2022 offers a snapshot of gender equality worldwide. The United Nations general secretary Antonio Guterres declared that gender equality "is increasingly distant" worldwide and that, according to Un Women, it will take another 300 years to achieve it. But how many years will it take us to achieve gender equality worldwide? In general, averaging all the values of the 145 countries involved in the research will take about 132 years. The gender gap remains one of the fundamental criteria for leading a nation to prosperity. This represents a slight four-year improvement compared to the 2021 estimate (136 years to parity). The benchmark studies are based on four key dimensions: participation and economic opportunity, educational and educational development, health and well-being, and finally, political empowerment that chart and shape the way forward for progress in 'gender equality. 


Every woman alone is worth it, but they are often belittled, injured, and many are killed - femicide - because some think that there is inequality and, therefore, the man feels more powerful and authorized to prevail over the woman believed to be weaker, the weaker sex in history. The need to set up an entire day aimed at awareness, sensitization, and promotion for all adults and young people regarding what can still be changed to reduce further the disparity, for example, the gender pay gap. In 2023 it shouldn't even be necessary to dedicate 24 hours to restore that adequate space that was taken away from it in the past. Yes, because the present is also the sum of the values transmitted by those who have been there before us, and it should have been adapted, but it’s not happened. Would you mind doing your part?
