In Switzerland, conservative values ​​are in, for example among young people. The youth survey of last autumn shows: Although young people want to change the world, they make demands - keyword climate youth - but they are also conservative in terms of family values. A development with consequences for women, says the publicist and philosopher Lisz Hirn from Austria. The conservative turnaround is dangerous. In addition, there are also conservative ideas to be observed on the left.

She works as a philosopher, as a scientific writer, as a coach & lecturer in youth and adult education and as a freelance artist involved in international art projects and exhibitions.

SRF News: Why is a conservative worldview dangerous for women?

On the one hand, because women’s conservative role is laid out at home and behind men. As soon as women are pushed back from the labor market or see their rights in terms of abortion, contraception or starting a family threatened, this means that they become more dependent on their husbands.

It is also important to mention that we should not forget the men who supported emancipation.

This has less of an impact on young women, but at the latest when women aged 50+ want to separate, this fact comes to the fore.

BecometheWomenfromlabour marketpushed back? Yells the labour marketNotformallytoWelltrainedWomen theworkshould?

In principle, it can be determined on the basis of numbers that women are much better educated than men in many areas. However, you can also see that very little has changed in management positions in recent decades.

You speak of a conservative turnaround, which is also visible among young people. At the moment, however, we have the climate youth, who hardly see themselves as conservative. How does that fit together?

There is a right-wing conservative and a left-wing conservative. There are also conservative forces on the left who want to naturalize women very strongly and try to define the core of being a woman. At some point you automatically end up with women's fertility.

There is also a strong tendency towards “good mother nature” among left-wing conservative forces, and there is also a certain fear of chemical contraceptives and a certain skepticism about alternative life models such as the family model.

So Has a «backtoNature"also negativeconsequencesFortheWomen?

This can have negative consequences for women, especially when nature is romanticized. Nature in itself is neither good nor bad. I strongly warn against bringing in this romanticism of nature. Women who want to live an emancipated life, who want to have the right to abortion and the right to contraception and control of their own reproduction, would otherwise fall into the left-wing conservative and right-wing conservative treadmills.

So “becoming a mother” is the pièce de resistance: if women have children, they weaken themselves. If they don't get any, they also weaken. What should be done?

The situation is very precarious at the moment. No matter how you do it, you do it wrong as a woman. You should try to be as free as possible about what you want. I wouldn't tell a woman not to have a child, nor would I ask a woman to have one. Women should show solidarity with one another. It is also important to mention that we should not forget the men who supported emancipation. Because without this it doesn't work. I consider the feminist discourses, which partially exclude men, to be very questionable.

The interview was conducted by Simone Hulliger.

  • Comment from Mike Steiner (M. Steiner)
    Between the lines I can hear: The only thing that helps is to intensify the media, educational and political brainwashing again. Apparently one fails to recognize that overstretched arches have the tendency to tear and develop an opposite force ...

  • Comment from Mark Keller (mkel)
    Here again, topics are wildly mixed up. Trad. Family image (main breadwinner + housewife) means financial dependency, but not physical and whatever else is listed here. A housewife also has a say in pregnancy, contraception or abortion. If not, it is massively suppressed by the man and that has nothing to do with the employment situation. Why not check out WHY this model continues to be so popular? Financial aspects? Children? Family life?

      There was once someone who introduced a family wage equivalent to that of the steel worker. That was in France in 1946 in a time window of almost 12 months, where Ambroise Croizat introduced such unthinkable things for us oh so modern and emancipated.

  • Comment from Daniela Zumsteg (Zumsde)
    @Markus Guggisberg:
    A high on the cliché and the circulating images of women. Dismissing good arguments as a declaration of war cannot be a justification for not trusting us women and for supporting us and moving us further.
    A sensible dialogue on consensus could really help shape the distribution of roles in the future.
    Agree agree to the comment
    1. answer from antigone kunz (antigonekunz)
      Ms. Zumsteg one look at the slightly wider circle is enough for a woman to recognize that there is little to be gained with the peace flag, apart from an assimilation of women to men. Exemplary when women and men as soldiers are allowed to share the same absurdities and inhumanities. To consider this as the emancipation of women? Feminism is the rejection of everything that humiliates, minimizes and destroys people in body / soul and spirit. AND makes nature a commodity.
