There is still much, much more to do

Rosalia Arteaga Serrano

.

When we look back and review the history of humanity and compare with what happens today, in most of the countries of what we could call Western civilization, influenced, in one way or another by the Judeo-Greco-Roman legacy , we find an undeniable advance.

 

But if we listen to the day-to-day life of countless women around us, if we take a deeper look at everyday realities, we feel that the gap is still huge and dramatic, terribly unfair if we stick to it.

to statistics of femicides, of mistreatment of women, for whom their own home may be the most dangerous place, due to the high rates of domestic abuse, both from the physical point of view and from the sexual and psychological point of view.

 

The levels of violence, which go through the rape of minors, some of them in the cradle, are

bleak, they make us think that the human species has not advanced so much since the days of the caves.

 

Of course there are many achievements to be proud of, such as the increasingly determined participation of women in politics, in government, in decision-making in the public and private sectors, but there is still much, much more to do and education plays a fundamental role there.

 

And education is the raison d'être of this publication and the actions of FIDAL, an education that goes beyond school classrooms and that must be perpetuated throughout life, because every day we have something to learn and from everything that surrounds us.
