Today’s girls. They were the stars of the big and beautiful demonstration in Rome on Saturday. And those of the Left who cannot get anyone out into the street nowadays, as well as all who are trying to organize street movements to develop a renewed connection with society, can learn some valuable lessons from the new movement against violence that has developed in the past few years.
They can learn from it how to build such a high rate of participation among the younger generation. They can see the unyielding struggle of those who are able to organize a social response at the grassroots level, involving the difficult work of women’s shelters.
They can see the great strength of a feminist political culture that crosses over and feeds into an uprising without borders, with a strong international dimension that shows its extraordinary breadth and depth.
