The World Congress of Families and the Resistance

The 13th international conference of the World Congress of Families was held between the 29th and 31st of March in the prestigious Gran Guardia Palace in Verona. In October, Verona's mayor Federico Sboarina declared the city "pro-life" after the town council passed a motion that would use public funds to finance anti-abortion programs, inspiring politicians in other Italian cities. The WCF’s goal is to protect what it terms as the “natural family”, covering an array of sexual and reproductive health, women's and LGBTQ-persons rights. The Swedish weekly newspaper Arbetaren visited the conference to document the event and the feminist resistance. Thousands of people responded to the call for solidarity of the Italian feminist movement Non una di meno.
