“How can you think that a woman who goes with the 12 heel on a construction site can understand something?”. This was stated by Michele Matrone, candidate for mayor of the center-right for the municipality of Rignano sull’Arno (Florence) against the opponent supported by the center-left Dominga Guerri. He denounces it ‘Together for Rignano’, the civic list that has nominated Guerri, explaining in a statement that the sexist offenses would have been advanced during “an electoral meeting that took place yesterday in San Donato in Collina”. “Claims that women are not (euphemistically) able to carry out political activity because of their choices in terms of clothing, heels and attitudes – writes the movement that nominated Guerri, current deputy mayor – is offensive to our entire civic movement and it concerns the whole Rignanese Citizenship where women give their contribution in every sphere of work and professionalism, as and how much men, since they are competent people regardless of the gender to which they belong “. “We believe that attention must be paid to sexual discrimination and the dignity of women. In our country, not surprisingly, we wanted to install a red bench as a symbol of a path to raise awareness of violence against women in all his expressions – continues the note from the civic list – We are sorry to note that, still in 2022, sexist words that no longer belong to any political coalition can be used. The use of personal attacks, seasoned with shameful and retrograde declarations, is ignoble and must be strongly condemned! We firmly believe in gender equality, in words and deeds, the very choice of the Candidate Mayor best represents how political decisions depend only on skills. Those who have these ideas about women should be ashamed “.
