The wave of reactionaryism that has flooded Brazil since Jair Bolsonaro came to power has brought many exotic specimens to the political scene and even after four years this movement still manages to surprise. In recent days, regressism has highlighted something that a few years ago would have been unthinkable: women politicians who fight against women’s rights.
As is known, it is not only men who support machismo, many women reproduce the structural male chauvinist logic. But that they display this trait so proudly in political spaces is nothing short of surprising.
That’s what happened on Thursday (4th), in the vote on the bill that obliges employers to pay women the same salary as men when they work in the same job. An obvious redress of injustice. But 36 deputies who voted against did not understand it that way. Among these, ten women.
For Rosângela Moro (União-SP), Bia Kicis (PL-DF), Carla Zambelli (PL-SP), Silvia Waiãpi (PL-AP), Dani Cunha (União-RJ), Caroline de Toni (PL-SC), Julia Zanatta (PL-SC), Adriana Ventura (Novo-SP), Any Ortiz (Cidadania-RS) and Chris Tonietto (PL-RJ) women should continue to earn less than men, even working in a similar position. (See at the end of the text the names of the other deputies who voted against the project).
All are Bolsonaristas. The exception is Rosângela Moro, who is actually a lavajatista, but for strategic convenience she embraced bolsonarismo, a version of lavajatismo with a higher volume.
Despite their votes, the project was approved.
Yesterday it was the turn of former first lady Michelle Bolsonaro. Standing out at the PL women’s meeting, she attacked one of the few initiatives in favor of women’s participation in politics implemented in decades. “We want to eradicate the 30% quota, we want women in politics for their potential”, she shouted.
Faced with the bad repercussion, he recorded a video making a “rectification”, to defend the opposite of what he had said.
Judging by Michelle’s previous statements, defending women’s subservience to men and privileging their attributions in the home, it is not difficult to conclude which of the two statements truly expresses what the former first lady thinks.
May women voters keep this moment in their memory and show politicians and politicians of that suit what the true power of female suffrage is.
Below are the names of the deputies who voted against the project that establishes equal salaries for men and women who perform the same function: Alberto Fraga (PL-DF), André Fernandes (PL-CE), Bibo Nunes (PL-RS), Captain Alden (PL-BA), Carlos Jordy (PL-RJ), Cb Gilberto Silva (PL-PB), Deltan Dallagnol (Podemos-PR), doctor Jaziel (PL-CE), Eduardo Bolsonaro (PL-SP), Evair de Melo (PP-ES), Filipe Martins (PL-TO), General Girão (PL-RN), Gilson Marques (Novo-SC), Junio Amaral (PL-MG), Kim Kataguiri (União-SP), Luiz Lima (PL-RJ), Luiz PO Bragança (PL-SP), Marcel van Hattem (Novo-RS), Marcio Alvino (PL-SP), Mauricio Marcon (Podemos-RS), Maurício do Vôlei (PL-MG), Ricardo Salles (PL-SP), Rodolfo Nogueira (PL-MS), Rui Falcão (PT-SP), Sergeant Fahur (PSD-PR), Sgt. Gonçalves (PL-RN)
