The establishment of the first Commission for Equal Opportunities in Italy dates back to 1984 and took place in conjunction with other European states. It had a national character, then many satellite commissions of a regional and provincial nature were born, always having as their object the same principle, that is to eliminate “any obstacle related to the economic, political and social participation of any individual for reasons related to gender, religion, personal belief, racial and ethnic origin, disability, age, sexual or political orientation. When we talk about gender discrimination we must also include gender violence which the UN, in 1993, defined as “the manifestation of a historic disparity in the balance of power between men and women, which has led to the domination of men over women and discrimination against them, and has prevented real progress in the status of women“.

Starting from this assumption, all the activities aimed at educating to respect women and the fight against violence against women can be traced back to the purpose for which the POCs exist. On the occasion of 25 November, that is the World Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the Commissions for Equal Opportunities, of the Municipality of Fermo with president Gaia Capponi, the provincial of Fermo with president Francesca Palma, of Porto Sant ‘Elpidio with the president Ilaria Santandrea, the Committee for Equal Opportunities of the Council of the Bar Association of Fermo with the president Donatella Sciarresi, the patronage of the Regional CpO with the president Maria Lina Vitturini, to give life to the project “On the road of respect” which will take place over the two days of 25 and 26 November. Two days in which the women of the various POCs on board a Steat coach, which collaborates in the event, will tour the Municipalities of Fermo, Petritoli, Monte Vidon Combatte, Ortezzano, Monte Rinaldo distributing information material on how to defend themselves, and many times to save oneself from the physical or psychological violence one can suffer. The places chosen to leave the material are the centers to which women victims of violence generally go as first aid points, that is, doctors’ surgeries and pharmacies. Starting date, therefore, November 25, with a brief moment of meeting scheduled at the auditorium of San Filippo Neri in Fermo during which the “Respect Bags” will be delivered to the head teachers of the Fermo Secondary Schools because, as declared by the Equality councilor of the Province of Fermo Luciana Mariani «if we have a chance to improve tomorrow it is with young people».

It was Francesca Palma who defined Mariani «the real engine of the project, which – continued Palma – was very favorably received by all the people who work in synergy at the provincial level because our goal is to protect all forty Municipalities in the province of Still creating a real protection network so much so that a letter has been sent to all provincial municipalities asking them to appoint a municipal contact person for Equal Opportunities ».

On the 25th, however – continued Lanzide – at 18.30 in the Sala degli Artisti there will be Cinzia Mammoliti, a pioneer of studies on affective manipulation who will explain how to understand a case of violence from the very first signs ». Very full days and organized to protect women’s rights which also include the right to abortion “not protected in the territory of the province of Fermo because it is impossible to carry out” as recalled by Gaia Capponi during the press conference.
