Ten tips for 2022!

Ten tips for 2022!

We started a new year and we were thinking together with the whole team, how we wanted to start it. The new year is the time of new resolutions par excellence. It is that time when you close a chapter, with its lights and shadows, and open a new one, blank, waiting to be written. And mistakes come to your mind, those you didn't get to do, what you would do differently or simply what you didn't have time to do.

From Women of the World we encourage you to take a moment to take stock, trying to be as objective as possible, to contemplate the decisions taken in the context in which they were taken and with the information you had at the time. But we also encourage you to make a life plan, a plan of serene resolutions for this new year, centered on love for others, because that is where one's own happiness lies.because there is more joy in giving than in receiving, and because there is more joy in giving than in receiving, and because there is more joy in giving than in receiving.making others happy broadens the soul, fills the heart and makes you grow.

For this reason we would like to share with you 10 tips that we proposed to carry out and that can help you to illuminate this life plan.those new resolutions for this 2022. Read them and try to land your goals in the light of this handful of ideas that are broad enough to be a common framework and concrete enough to be resolutions in themselves:

1.- Give yourself completely to those you love, without measuring or comparing.

2.- Live each moment fully, do well what you have to do.

3.- Enjoy being a mother, sister, daughter... Play, laugh, go on excursions, time flies by!

4.- Make yourself beautiful just for him, take care of your life as a couple.

5.- Take care of your inner life, the one that transcends you and makes you look at the sky.

6.- Climb mountains, ride a bike, run... and if possible, do it with your family or friends.

7.- Be supportive of your friends, take care of them and let them take care of you.

Do not compare yourself with anything or anyone, you are unique.

9.- Cry when you need to, seek refuge and start again.

10.- Smile and be happy making others happy.

Let's go forward! May this 2022 be filled with more lights than shadows and may we, with love, joy, respect and transparency, be lights for those around us.

In the face of violence against women

In the face of violence against women

On the 25th is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

The Women of the World platform joins the frontal rejection of all violence but we refuse to generalize and criminalize men.

We want to make clear our condemnation of violence, a strong demand for full compliance with the penalties for abusers, rapists etc ... and what we understand violence against women and what it implies and how it should be fought.

You can read and download here 10 clear points about violence against women. 

We also understand that it is admissible to defend women by criminalizing men in Western cultures, but to remain silent in the face of the violence rooted in cultures that justify and defend that same violence.

Women, as well as men, are susceptible to this violence. In our case, this violence is often closely linked to the hypersexualization of women and the objectification of their bodies. In other cases, the woman is subject to violence not so much because she is a woman, but because of the family or professional relationship that links her to the aggressor. 

It is important that women denounce and combat the violence that many women suffer, but with a firm and conciliatory message of peace and hope. Knowing and condemning also the violence that many men suffer.

REPORT: Bereavement of perinatal death

In the event of the loss of an unborn child

The global platform Women of the World resumes this October, month of perinatal bereavement, the campaign for perinatal bereavement support and dignified treatment of babies who die before birth, responding to the need of a very high number of mothers and fathers who carry this wound in their hearts, so many families with a bitter memory and a goodbye they could not give.

Upon the death of an unborn child, as part of the bereavement support protocol, we ask that parents be given full information on the treatment of the body, burial options and that bodies NOT be collected in the same containers as surgical remains.

To this end, the platform has launched a campaign to collect signatures and is working intensively with health policy makers in various countries.

Numerous studies emphasize the importance, both anthropologically and psychologically, of the funeral rite in the process of accepting a loss; it is also fair and necessary for parents to have all the information about the options that exist for burial.

You can read and download here our psychological report prepared by an expert psychologist.

Each country has its own legislation and it is true that progress can be seen at the political and hospital level, but still, in society as a whole, perinatal bereavement is a silenced cry that receives little empathy.

Undoubtedly, there is general agreement on the need to move forward in this direction, but there is little legislation and few practical measures to transform good intentions into action. For example, in the United States, only 10 of the 50 states have laws regarding the burial of fetal remains. In Spain, although the Constitutional Court issued a ruling allowing parents to take charge of their baby's body, parents are not informed and there are no mechanisms in place to facilitate the burial or farewell.

Our platform advocates 3 basic proposals that represent a first radical change in bereavement support:

  1. that a specific container be used for the bodies of babies, that they not be considered surgical remains. Because my baby is not the same as a cyst or an appendix.
  2. that parents be offered to be present at the routine cremation of the contents of the container in which their infant's remains were collected.
  3. that all of this be reported in a hospital protocol that is given to the parents by default. A protocol that explains what is going to happen and what options the parents have and give their express consent.

To this end, the platform has launched a campaign to collect signatures and is working intensively with health policy makers in various countries.
