(en) [Spain] Anarcofeminism and the butterfly effect By Rosa Fraile - By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 9 Mar 2021 10:06:58 +0200

I don't like the so-called new normality at all. They are trying to make us believe that what happens to us is "normal". This dominant discourse identifies what is normal with what is common, therefore with what is good and accepted. It is dangerous and fallacious. Its objective is that practices that are not good, both inside and outside the workplace, are assumed to be normal and consented. What is the use of preventing girls' feet from growing? Was this limitation of the child, which was so normalized in the Middle Ages, good? And, after decades of struggling to leave home and occupy the public space, what improvements does the imposition of the telework corset on women bring us? Is it normal for 8M to bring more pandemics and that Eva always has to eat the apple under the eyes of a snake and Adam drooling over biting the fruit?

Brincadeiras à parte, temo que surpresas desagradáveis nos aguardem entre agora e os próximos 8M e que queremos normalizar questões intoleráveis, por isso devemos planejar cuidadosamente nossas ações coletivas e definir nossos objetivos e estratégias sem demora.

The normal should be to advance against all odds towards an egalitarian and solidary future, with a fair, feminist, sustainable and respectful planet. This requires commitment and requires us to personally consider the day to day, taking care of our environment and the living beings that surround us. If, based on this individual awareness, our actions and decisions have an interesting "butterfly effect", at the collective and organizational level this "effect" can be tremendous. What does every breath of a woman in Central Africa cause? Would a blink of an eye in Europe trigger a green tornado in Argentina? Well, we don't know! But since its origins, feminism has the capacity to introduce important disturbances in the chaotic system of this anthropocentric and patriarchal capitalism,

It is necessary to carry out a serene reflection on what happened and its effects, to continue talking and analyzing, to contrast opinions, to debate everything that is necessary, with a constructive sense and a gender focus, to present a united and strengthened anarcho-feminist front, with a clear path marked, ready not to take a step back in the feminist struggle for equality and emancipation.

Our movements will cause tornadoes!
