(en) Greece, ESE Athens: WE DON'T WANT FLOWERS WE CAME TO STAND AT THE HEIGHT THAT OUR LIFE DEPRIVED [machine translation]

Date Sat, 13 Mar 2021 11:00:50 +0200


The years go by faster than we imagined. The wrinkles and white hair left on most of us is a deterrent to opportunities at work, in love and in life. And this is the price of belonging to the so-called "beautiful sex". As long as you are a cool mint leaf, everyone wants to turn you in their mouth, digesting the delicious meal of patriarchy. ---- In the quarantine treaty we are experiencing, the women's claim of 1857 also marked March 8 for a reduction in working hours, it seems more relevant than ever. In our work, we have to take care of the house, guide the children in distance education, smooth the corners that are sharpened - often playing the role of a boxing bag - due to the economic, socio-political and health crisis.
On the other hand, we have workers working in places that operate at the given time (shops, hospitals, nursing homes, care for the elderly and patients) exposing themselves to danger every day, without necessarily achieving full and adequate coverage (test, transport, sanitary equipment). Even though the proportion of women in the workforce has increased, the spaces reserved for us in their majority send us north to unskilled work.
Those who were discouraged by the belief that it was an important moment for the women's movement for women to take key positions, such as the President of the Republic, are now confronted with the obvious: it is nothing more than a puppet, a word that does not hide its tragic irony.
Trying to manage a life between laundry, telework and cooking, the "revelations" about sexual harassment and traumatic experiences came to remind us every time we had to respond to comments, to bow our heads because they made us believe we were wearing something provocative or stop time because someone touched us against our will. Really, have we ever forgotten them?
Really, if the revelations did not move the domino of pedophilia, would they shock us the same? Or have we reduced the harassment of the woman to the -not so- innocent flirtation of the alpha male and the old-fashioned man? Will there really be a time when we will not have to say to a child "I have suffered too"?
WE DO NOT ASK FOR EQUALITY
WE DO NOT REQUIRE RESPECT
Paraphrasing Gogou, we say to all those who reduced us that:
Loneliness, loneliness I tell us. For ours I say it is twelve in our hands
that turns over your heads turns turns turns turns.
