Nuria Sastre:

The history of a transgression

In all times women are existed that they broke the social models of his age. According to their status social was considered eccentric or directly marginalized, when not burned in one bonfire. For more of a century, the called movements femininities and others not so radical but not for that reason less innovators, removed foundations of a building solidly constructed through the centuries and carefully kept by states, religions and factual powers. A truth it was in the open and it crossed the planet: the woman has her own dignity and its right to be she herself in equality with the rest of the human beings. The majority received the announcement like a liberating breeze, others like a virus that it put in serious danger the stability of the society and family.

The universal Declaration of the Rights Humans, do already more than half century, he granted to this dignity the highest rank never reached: Nobody will be discriminated because of sex, religion....

The legislations of the called societies developed to take back this equality and rights. Other institutions cultural, religious, cetera, continous, however, ignoring the right of women a to vindicate its dignity and its right to the difference in a society in that men and women can be respected and develop their lives without discrimination of sorts.

In spite of the great advances, we cannot to consider us to satisfied of the evolution that in the societies europeans present the real application of the recognized rights officially.

The dignity of the woman, its right to govern his life in the difference spontaneus is not recognized in the society, a times only tolerated. the women perceive and suffer that their fight not only she has not finished but that must be maintained permanently not to lose cattle with as much effort by the last generations.

The institutions of the marriage and of family was designed and conserved based on a supjection of woman to the task of the reproduction and taken care of prole and also of men, beings to whom always must take care of, to attend and to give its body, for that the world works with normality.

To break the rules of the game, the women apparently has put in danger the social balance and has filled of preoccupation and insecurity, from most meager cellular social - the pair to the highest political and religious instances. Why? they are asked all agents, the women have insisted on changing the rules that prevailed from for centuries? Did not go perfectly everything?

Why, in addition to its roll of wife and mother, one insists on exerting a profession, with a effort in time and work, that inevitably it affects to its quality of life and the one of its relatives? Why already one does not feel totally satisfied waiting for the soldier and giving the rest him that this one always needs?

The women have discovered that the main one reason for its frustrations is the paper that traditionally was adjudged to them, to the service worldwide, with ignorance of its more genuine aspirations. It does not mean the rejection to the maternity, the family and the pair, but an exercise different from all it. It demands to share, it demands coresponsibility and it demands to be able to develop its mind beyond the domestic and familiar tasks that also it continues assuming.On the result of all it the success of his depends relation with the pair, because its sexuality is not an independent mechanism, but that one is integrated in all his person.

Really, the truth has been to discovered, before the perplexity and general consternation, and it is perceived reproach subterranean in each familiar unit, by the supposed treason to eter principles to us, reproach that never will be formulated in objective terms, already that the resentment does not have another foundation that that comes from times prehistoric and permanece enrolled in the genes through the generations.

As catholic women we cannot be satisfied with the traditional direction towards our sort. During centuries the submission has prevailed us, have ignored our aspirations, ours sexuality and has stayed moved away carefully to us of the organs of to be able and of decision. The fixation respect to the virginity or like only alternative, the maternity, is not more than a prejudice and a negation of immense wealth that supposes the femininity.

Nothing of it we found in the Gospel, that it presents/displays diverse women to us, with respect and balance, if we consider the twenty passed centuries. Jesus Christ is related to them in public and with remarkable freedom given the customs of the time and he accepts his attentions and aid. It pardons its sins and it does not proclaim against her stigmas or sentences. "Woman... nobody has condemned to you ". But there is something more important and it is than it admits between its followers and disciples and it makes privileged witnesses of the Resurección.

Texts: Lucas 10, 38-42 Juan 4, 1-42 Lucas 24, 1-12 Acts 1, 12-14

It demonstrates that the concept to us of woman as to be inferior is purely sociological and for that reason we must analyze it only to the light of history, separating it of ours faith and to recover way that never had to give in: the marked one by the Gospel.

In our present time, the women and by supposed the young people churches and formation move away more and more of nuns whom they try to relegate them to situations that are considered practicamente surpassed. With too much frequency, one goes to the end opposite, but the freedom in the customs does not solve the problems, before on the contrary: submission can perfectly finish in a new form of submission.

Our responsibility is to preach Gospel and to transmit a liberating experience that grants the women force necessary para to transform every day a world that resists to recognize our dignity and resists to let itself influence by the values of the femininity.

But we cannot remain only in reflections theoretical. Also we must value the positive scopes in which transformation of mentality already has taken place. We must harness these scopes and to present them.

From Pax Romana, from the plural Church and participative, the dignity of the woman has to constitute a current liberating, affecting the society by means of our testimony and ours it denounces of situaciones that attempts to the human rights and the same one Gospel, always with discernment of the historical ballasts that us they affect, to discover news and brotherly alternatives.
