International Women’s Day 2022: a day for fighting, not just celebrating

ANDREIA NOBRE used to believe that women’s oppression was ‘a thing of the past,’ but the more she researched the more she realised the overwhelming burdens placed upon women are still much here today – and the battle is far from over

IN THE years to come, women must raise their voices against female oppression. I was certainly not “raised” as a feminist. On the contrary, I was raised being told by society in general that women are not oppressed any more

Indeed, many people actually say that every day to women on social media, in the newspapers, in the movies, in the advertisements

For years, I have accepted a narrative that women’s achievements in equal opportunities, political or economical independence and bodily autonomy were stark proof that patriarchy has been overthrown

But the evidence that can be found goes against that claim. Women’s achievements around the world do not prove that women are not oppressed any more, but an account that women are fighting

Around 2011, I was pregnant with what would have been my second child. This pregnancy would end up in a gruesome miscarriage that traumatised me

I suffered obstetric violence, but I didn’t have a name for it at the time. A year later, I got pregnant again and, when I announced it to some female friends, they seemed to rush to tell me about the obstetric scenario that my country, Brazil, was going through
