Dear readers and fellow bloggers:
Good morning. Today the United Nations, the European Union and other large international organizations are hosting events for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Sadly it is still a major Public Health and societal threat that involves almost all communities. This terrible scourge must be eradicated from our civic, labor and personal spaces.
Unfortunately the forced Social Isolation and extensive economic aftermath provoked by the pandemic has only worsened the living conditions of countless women living with serial abusers. Because most of the cases of violence against women involve familiar perpetrators like partners. Our dear father Mario always admonished us: “Whomever hits a woman is a coward.” Ever since then we have lived with that motto seared in our minds in all circumstances and social settings.
Let us help in this worldwide campaign by developing more civic conscience in the younger generations that must clearly understand that there is never a justification for that barbarism. And let us demand that the laws and regulations of our countries pursue and punish abusers. Moreover, the subliminal violent messages of the “popular culture” must be firmly denounced.

No more violence against Women.
Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.

Don’t leave me alone.
