“Feminicides are the ultimate act of violence. A violence that has its origins in routine sexism. Even the non-negotiable image we see of Berlusconi on television is another kind of subtle violence.”

Barbara Bachmann and Franziska Gilli | Authors of the book "Whore or Saint: Being a Woman in Italy"

“Problematic situations and demands on coping are transferred from society to individuals, who are then often left to themselves (and expected) to cope with what society imposes on them. And violence continues to be a coping mechanism for men.”

“When women, who have internalized patriarchy and by doing so reproduce it (as unfortunately most of us have), come to power, it is only a partial solution. The goal should be to break down the system and rebuild one that embraces and accepts our individual uniqueness.”

“Women often find it difficult to talk about the violence they experience because they know very well that it will be trivialized, and that they will be ridiculed or even blamed. The danger of being ostracized is existential, so many women have very good reasons to remain silent.”
