It was born In Italy at the end of 2016, on the long wave of what is now called the "Argentine call". And from there comes its name too.
Non Una Di Meno (NUdM) is the Italian feminist movement that, in the wake of the Argentine movement, Ni Una Menos, fights against male and gender violence in all its forms. A ferment, that started from Latin America, which has activated strong international connections outlining a struggle field and common demand, shared by feminist and transfeminist networks and by all the subjectivities that recognize themselves in an intersectional approach. Adopting this setting it means considering violence in broader terms, analyzing all forms of oppression that are grafted onto economic and social differences, of origin and class, gender and sexual identity. It means unmasking institutional and structural violence that permeates every corner of society, imposing on women, migrants and subjectivity LGBTQI * imposed roles, precariousness and impassable borders.
To fight against patriarchal violence therefore means for NUdM to recognize its systemic character and to fight against every form of hierarchy and oppression. A battle articulated on several levels and aimed at a radical transformation of society.
The movement defines itself as feminist, anti-fascist and anti-racist and, throughout Europe, seeks to dictate a new political agenda to counter attacks from the increasingly numerous neo-conservative governments and neoliberal economic policies that exploit and marginalize people. It claims the right of women to decide on their bodies, opposing all those reactionary logic that try to impose gender roles and an idea of ​​sexuality aimed solely at procreation (thanks to the push of feminist movements in Ireland, on May 25 2018, the prohibition of abortion was abrogated). It moves against sexual violence and feminicides, whose data are increasingly alarming. It is opposed to all those forces of government ready to exploit violence against women to justify racist and security policies (exemplary in this sense is the case of Macerata, in Italy). It fights against economic violence, the blackmail of precarious work or a residence permission, which has women and migrants as an easy target. It intends to subvert power relations that generate harassment, violence, racism and economic and social inequalities.
A strong word hold, a river that has become tidal and has found in every country its primary demands and claims. In Italy, the Non Una Di Meno movement emerged in full force on March 8, 2017, with the adhesion to the first International Women's Strike called from the Argentinian movement Ni una Menos. Since then it has not stopped its activities being transformed, as in other countries, into a political subject in all respects, autonomous and driving for many realities of movement.
However, the challenge remains as large as it is complex, and can only count on the dedication of the activists and the strength of their horizontal practices. The goal is the subversion of a system that, in fact, prevents the full freedom of self-determination of women and all those non-aligned subjectivities. An equally complex system in constant evolution, which needs to be analyzed frequently, of change in change.
