World News: A Woman and Her Fights

The election of Ursula von der Leyen as head of the European Commission marks a rare advance in mentality in a political body long dominated by men. But this appointment will not hide the violence that still affects women.

Should we see there the recognition of a professional competence or a sign of the times which wants that the women are progressively recognized at their fair value in the public sphere?

The day after the appointment Ursula von der Leyen at the head of the European Commission, (Lemonde.fr: https://www.lemonde.fr/idees/article/2019/11/27/le-long-chemin-europeen- d-ursula- von-der-leyen_6020740_3232.html) the most powerful political organ of the Union, the question arises and finds a double answer.

This appointment is the result of a knowledge of the Ursula von der Leyen abilities as well as the revealing sign of a change of mentality. Until now, the European Commission had always been led by men whose skills had never been openly in any case, the subject of doubt or discussion.

Course and Dominant

The European Parliament, in charge of electing the President of the Commission, which also had to decide on the candidates in the running, had rarely in the past issued special reservations on the candidate or candidates. But in the case of Ursula von der Leyen, negotiations, questions and other discussions have been going well ... Why? Maybe his career?

Minister of Defense Angela Merkel, from one of the founding countries of the Union, Ursula von der Leyen seemed to detonate in a quiet political environment or prevailed the dominant male, that of the male Alpha.

But the Union and its institutions that want to be, and must be, a reflection of the societies they represent, have rightly allowed themselves to be impregnated by the current trends that are passing through Western Europe and the world in general. to give women their rightful place.

Ursula von der Leyen will therefore occupy the coveted position of President of the European Commission, no offense to a dubious or even restive male elite.

Mentalities and Violence

It is therefore somewhat reassuring to think that mentalities have changed, that they are trying in any case, by an awareness that we hope global while paradoxically are multiplying in France for example, perhaps in other countries of the world, feminicides and other aggressions of all kinds against women.

These acts that shake and shock public opinion lead to an observation: The fight to be carried out for the equality between men and women is still long, in spite of the example that embodies Ursula von der Leyen. Violence against women, still unbearable have not yet found real criminal responses despite the strengthening of the legal arsenal in France or elsewhere.

After the conclusion, a conclusion is necessary, the appointment Ursula von der Leyen is a first victory but the war against the physical and verbal violence of which they are the object is still long.
