Ô Seigneur, libérez nous du mâle !

In the Old Testament, the Patriarchate designates the region under the supreme authority of a bishop holding political power: the patriarch (from the Greek patriarkhès "head of the family" and pater "power or commandment"). The people are then subject to the patriarch, as women and children are subject to the father of the family. Why the father of the family? This hierarchy of the genders goes back to the Neolithic period, when the link between the sexual act and the birth of a child was discovered. Life, a divine gift, is the prodigious act of the genitor who deposits his seed in the vessel that is the woman. A simple receptacle. Idolatry of the phallus, masterly weapon of life. The man becomes the creator. Man becomes God.


A WOMAN DIES EVERY 9 MINUTES FROM AN CLANDESTIN ABORTION

To deprive someone of their right to abortion is to condemn them to death.


The ultra conservative Polish government wants to return to the Middle Ages.
Abortion was allowed in Poland under 3 conditions: in case of danger to the mother, in case of rape or incest, in case of irreversible malformation of the fetus. However, in 2019 only 1,100 women had legal abortions...even when their situations corresponded to the legal conditions for abortion, many women were denied abortion by their doctors, or due to strong psychological pressure. The vast majority of women were therefore forced to go abroad (Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria or the Netherlands), to have an operation in clinics that perform clandestine abortions, or to buy abortion pills on the black market. The figure rises to 200,000 women who had an illegal abortion in 2019. 
In Poland, one in three women claim to have had an abortion. But soon, more than 2% of them will be able to do it legally...


When I was a little girl, I loved the soft and pink dolls, they entertained me. But today, the roles are reversed, I have become a woman: I am the toy. He finds me beautiful and well-groomed, and likes it best when I keep quiet. My body does not belong to me anymore, it is true, he takes me and throws me away. He told me that soon I would not be beautiful enough, I would need plastic in my body to be a real doll.

LONG LIVE FREE HAIR



In the collective imagination, a hairy woman is systematically associated with dirtiness, a lack of hygiene, or even insanity: a woman who does not take care of herself, renounces her femininity, her beauty and therefore the very essence of her existence.

She is a witch, a wild beast, a feminazi or a dyke. Hairy women are perceived as threatening. 


They disobey their "woman's role" imposed by the patriarchy.
At the beginning of the 20th century, systemic hair removal became a norm. What a coincidence!

 It is indeed at the same time of the economic and political emancipation of the women. They have more rights, and enjoy a brand new freedom. Freedom that we can see through the increasingly short clothes... 

Wasn't this a desire to socially constrain women at a time when they were gaining in freedom? Hair removal is synonymous with gendered social control... 

My adelphes, the hair is political!

Let it be the symbol of protest and rebellion against the established order, just as it has been throughout history with the hairy hippie movement in the 60s for example.

 Let the hair be part of our identities, a symbol of social belonging to a movement that will change the world and break our chains.

THE TABOO AROUND MENSTRUATION IS ANOTHER WAY OF SHAMING THE BODIES OF MENSTRUATING PEOPLE.

Menstruation is not dirty or shameful!

If feminists show their periods, it is not by fashion as some would say, it is by necessity. The taboo around menstruation is a danger that threatens menstruating people everywhere in the world. Let's talk about it! In France, it is estimated that 15.5 million people are concerned by the question of menstruation and 500 million of them live in menstrual precariousness. Indeed, the expenses of a life, by counting hygienic protections, underclothing and anti-pain, vary between 1700 euros and 5400 euros per person. 

Students and precarious workers are the first to suffer. They are sometimes forced to wear sanitary protection longer than advised (knowing that tampons are soaked in hyper absorbent materials that dry out the mucous membranes, this can be very dangerous), to make their own protection, or to isolate themselves. The damage is considerable in other countries of the world.

Let's take the example of India, where menstruation is even more taboo than here. The precariousness is such that many Indian women use old rags as protection, which they sometimes dry badly, not daring to expose them to the open air. The results can be very serious: irritation, itching, infections... This menstrual precariousness also pushes them to isolation: about a quarter of Indian girls are out of school during their periods. 

This isolation can be found in Nepal, for example, where it is customary to send women and young girls to huts during their menstruation, in order to prevent them from "contaminating" their environment. This dangerous isolation has already caused the death of several women in these huts. Another example would be that of Bolivia, women during their periods, are not allowed to wash themselves or to throw their sanitary protection in a trash can, these gestures would cause cancer. Mentalities must change. 

A TETON IS NOT A SEXUAL THING

There is nothing more common than a nipple, since, spoiler: we all have them. However, in our gendered societies, a simple nipple will not get the same treatment if it is located on a flat chest or at the end of a breast. 


My explanation will be binary since the point of view of this society is binary. Men can waddle around shirtless. Women can wear maxi cleavage (showing a part of the body that is not identical to our colleagues), but the nipple, no, it can't be seen. Why not?


Because it represents the "mysteries of feminine eroticism", at least from a normative hetero viewpoint. What is not revealed, will be desired. And if it is revealed, as would be a simple nipple that points under the shirt due to the cold, gentlemen can not help but associate erect breasts and sexual desire. Many women are forced to wear a bra just to hide the nipple. 


But it's not our place to hide, gentlemen, it's your place to change! All nipples have hundreds of nerve endings, so yes, it can be an erogenous zone (i.e. not all of us are sensitive to it and that's ok). But please boys, repeat after me: 
A visible nipple is not revealed to please you. A woman breastfeeding her child is not sexual. Leave our nipples alone, thank you.

SKILFUL COOK, SKILFUL HOUSEWIFE

Pans and mops in hand, you perform the same daily gestures until your moving body turns into an automaton. You handle objects with elegance and pleasure, almost as if it were an innate ability. However, it is the repetition of household tasks that has forced you to incorporate them. At this point: you don't even need brain power.
In 2010, in France, according to the INSEE, a woman makes between 28 and 41 hours per week domestic tasks, on her own locked up in her house, with this love that she has for free and voluntary work. As for a man, he would only spend between 10 and 26 hours. 
When will this change? Will the mental load be shared one day?
