Quoi, les cathos sont sexistes ?

This year both of Italy’s houses of parliament voted to ratify the Council of Europe’s wide-ranging convention on violence against women. Last year the UN’s special rapporteur on violence against women, Rashida Manjoo, said after a visit to Italy that there was an urgent need to tackle the problem.

“Most manifestations of violence are under-reported in the context of a family-oriented and patriarchal society where domestic violence is not always perceived as a crime, there is economic dependency, and there are perceptions that the state response to such complaints will not be appropriate or helpful,” Manjoo said.
