It is a strong editorial choice for this liberal daily. On Friday, November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, La Stampa devotes its front page to this fight. In this context, the Turin newspaper highlights the most symbolic struggle for women at the moment: that against the Iranian regime.
Thus, the Italian media displays on its front page a photo of the work of the transalpine street artist Laika 1954, published yesterday, November 24, in the streets of Rome and showing an Iranian woman seeming to fly free. This is accompanied by the slogan of the current revolution: “Woman, life, freedom”, written in Persian and Italian.
“There is a culture to change”
“The idea of domination, of unique thought, of dictatorship, always goes through the same path: there are those who serve and those who are served, and women serve”, writes the famous journalist Concita De Gregorio in an editorial which accompanies one.
For her, the struggles of women around the world are part of the same struggle, and, as underlined another great pen of this journal, Annalisa Cuzzocrea, Italy must also look at the problem of gender violence in the face. There have been 104 feminicides in the peninsula this year, and it is time to face this theme in its entirety:
“There is a culture to change, in the school as well as in the courts. There are good laws, but they are not enough if we do not change our outlook, if respect does not advance, if freedom does not prevail. We have to do it together, and we have to do it now.”
