The Loneliness of Women – April edition
The loneliness of women is the theme of this issue. It is an immense theme, since its multiple aspects may be expressed in thousands of different ways. Indeed we are not speaking of the kind of solitude that may be chosen and desired as a good way of living with and listening to oneself without the superimposition of other voices. This is a choice which becomes, as it were a luxury, often glossed over by selfishness and in any case seen as being outside the normal scheme of things. What we are speaking of here is imposed loneliness resulting from circumstances and above all from women’s relationship with their own bodies and from their life cycle.
