“We women will carry out many actions, we are the majority in the world! Surely, we will neither stand still nor silent but we will continue to fight for our rights, because it is a question of defending human rights”. This is the ‘declaration of war’ that actress Eva Longoria – who in the past actively participated in Barak Obama’s electoral campaign and supported Hillary Clinton’s candidacy – launches, responding to AdnKronos, on the issue of abortion, after the ruling of the US Supreme Court which canceled it as a nationally recognized ‘right’. And he does it from Taormina, where with other international actresses and directors – including the Italians Margherita Buy and Maria Sole Tognazzi – he presents the film in seven short films ‘Tell it like a Woman’ with as many episodes on the life of women and the condition of women, as part of the Taormina Film Festival. “A very serious thing is happening in my country, which risks taking us far behind rather than forward – she warns – and in this sense the main task of the new Biden administration will consist in reviewing all the acts carried out by the previous Trump administration”. Then he explains: “It should have been up to Obama to appoint new judges to the Supreme Court, but the appointments were blocked by the Senate and at that point Trump intervened, thus influencing the majority relations within the Court where the conservatives now prevail. it is even more serious because the judges in the hearing before the Senate had ensured that they would not change the sentence on abortion, a promise not kept and indeed overturned “. Eva Longoria warns that” what happened in the US reflects what happens or can happen also in many other parts of the world: perhaps this is just the beginning … Patriarchy is still alive and well and very strong. This is why I say that we are all linked, our problem is also the problem of all the others. fundamental, the world needs to change, more balance is needed between the male and female point of view. We must show the world who we are, what we do, how much we are worth. apart, I never stopped, I never questioned my involvement in injustice: it is part of my DNA to support my ideas and among these is support for women’s battles “.
