Texto íntegro del discurso de Clara Campoamor en las Cortes

Creo que por su pensamiento ha debido de pasar, en alguna forma, la amarga frase de Anatole France cuando nos habla de aquellos socialistas que, forzados por la necesidad, iban al Parlamento a legislar contra los suyos. Respecto a la serie de afirmaciones que se han hecho esta tarde contra el voto de la mujer, he de decir, con toda la consideración necesaria, que no están apoyadas en la realidad. Tomemos al azar algunas de ellas. ¿Que cuándo las mujeres se han levantado para protestar de la guerra de Marruecos? Primero: ¿y por qué no los hombres? ¡Las mujeres!

We’re meant to pop an Advil and get on with things, Red Devil be damned. But in several, mostly East Asian, countries, so-called “menstrual leave” is a legally enshrined right for female workers. However, as these countries attempt to move toward greater gender equality in the workplace, menstrual leave has come under debate. The issue turns out to be surprisingly complicated, with complex historical roots and supporters on both sides of the liberal-conservative divide. Japan has had menstrual leave since just after World War II. La mujer latinoamericana ya no es como quieren los hombres.

But that video of a woman being catcalled 108 times in ten hours in New York that went viral last week brought it all back, and my interactions with him — or non-interactions, really — started bugging me all over again. I met Harry (not his real name, since I don’t know it) on a really nice court overlooking the Hudson, near the New York Magazine offices, where I frequently played over the summer. When you play pickup ball in one place over an extended period of time, you get to know the folks you’re playing with a little bit.

Earlier this summer, fresh from college graduation, Emma Watson, was named a U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador. Though the ripples of her involvement over the past few months can be seen online (crashing the U.N. Web site, using Twitter to denounce a sexist politician in Turkey or respond to the gender politics of the recent celebrity nude photo hack), Watson’s power in person is an entirely different matter.
