The Italians women against the "machismo" of Silvio Berlusconi.


In October 2009, more than 100,000 Italians have signed a petition, launched ten days by the daily "La Repubblica" denouncing the machismo of the Italian prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, whose attitude towards women is often disrespectful. "This man offends us, stop him," the petition proposes to "La Repubblica".
        
On October 8, 2009, Silvio Berlusconi has called the Democratic MP (left), a graduate in Political Science and former health minister in the government of Romano Prodi, Rosy Bindi (58) of "most beautiful than intelligent" in the course of a television program.
        
"Women offended by a disappointing president," "We are not available" or "This insult comes from a man more honest than intelligent," countered the Italians, who were likely to send their portraits accompanied messages, the leftist daily.
        
"By continually focusing on the age of a woman, on her physical appearance rather than his human qualities, we risk going back to the days before feminism," said journalist and author Lidia Ravera, one of the petitioners.
        
Giovanna Melandri, former Minister of Culture and Youth and Sports returned the pseudo-witticism of Berlusconi in the qualfiant man "larger than well-behaved", knowing that the latter is known to be complexed by its small size.
        
Berlusconi is caught in sex cases that prompted his wife Veronica Lario to request and obtain a divorce.
