A woman is not a partner, but part of a man’s possessions – this is how women’s rights are discussed among representatives of the Confederation. This has loose connections with the reality of the 21st century. Janusz Korwin-Mikke adds his visions and it becomes problematic, even according to right-wing politicians. Material from the “Poland and World” magazine.
There are only men in the room, but they are talking about women. – The discussion today is whether women can kill their children on a whim – says Mateusz Curzydło from the Patriarchat Foundation during its convention.
The guests presented a similar vision of women. – We care about the well-being of our women, but we do not treat them as partners, but as part of our possessions – points out right-wing publicist Ronald Lasecki.
Korwin-Mikke about women
Janusz Korwin-Mikke was also present. When asked about women’s voting rights, he replies: “It’s not about there being few women. It’s about them not voting, and if we men don’t want to elect someone, that’s our problem.”
– I believe that everyone should have the right to vote. Nevertheless, I respect the president’s opinion, because everyone has the right to freedom of opinion, says Wioletta Jachowicz-Wróblewska from Confederation. – The president is very brave and bold in his views, but we have the comfort of not having party discipline – he adds.
Journalists asked those who were running from one list whether they agreed with such views. – Of course not, because there are some that I do not consent to, but it is not a big problem because it is not an election campaign topic – says Michał Nieznański.
– What do you want women to do in revolutions? They are not there for that – says Janusz Korwin-Mikke during the Patriarchat Foundation convention. – What do we want from them? You just have to not let them decide – he points out at another point in the discussion. – Because when women want to achieve something, they take a man – she adds.
The conservative face of the Confederation
For the Confederation, such statements may be a problem. – Korwin-Mikke is consistent and that’s why he was hidden – says political scientist Dr. Hab. Szymon Ossowski. – Today’s success of the Confederation is due to pro-market views, little state and low taxes. People are going for it, some young and young entrepreneurs, and they are not interested in politics, and they do not know the conservative face of the Confederation – he emphasizes.
But such statements can easily be found in Janusz Korwin-Mikke’s earlier speeches. – Anyone who goes with a girl and wants her to become a little easier drinks as much as she does, and we know what the consequences are – he said. – If a woman says “no”, it means maybe, and if “maybe”, it means yes, and if “yes”, it means she is not a lady – he said another time.
The Confederation politician also pointed out that “a woman is a much more burdensome worker, so they have to pay her less, otherwise they would rather hire a man,” and that “women should earn less because they are weaker, smaller and less intelligent.” There are also answers to questions about rape or pregnancy resulting from rape. – Raped, what does raped mean? Women always pretend to put up some resistance, and this is normal, he argued.
Women’s support for the Confederation
– There is no powder that could powder the views of Mikke or Braun – says Dr. Mirosław Oczkoś, a political marketing and image specialist.
Because I’m alone Confederation is in favor of banning abortion in cases of rape. – We would not kill a sick child six months after birth and we should treat children who have not yet been born in the same way – said Michał Wawer during “Decision Time: Debate 2023” on TVN24.
Women’s support for the Confederation still surprises those involved. – 28 percent of women under 30 want to vote for the Confederation. This completely amazed me, admits Janusz Korwin-Mikke. According to the Confederation politician, these women know his views, “but they want to be treated as women and this feminist movement is over.”
