Post from Wagner: Dear Alice Schwarzer | politics


At 80, women look like they’re in a fairy tale, kind grandmothers with laugh lines around their eyes. That’s the cliché. Alice Schwarzer is a granny gone wild. Dominant, quarrelsome, hissing. Her fast lips are unstoppable. She throws out sentences like: “Stop arms deliveries to Ukraine.” “This war is a proxy war between America and Russia.”

She shouts out the sentences. It hurts to listen to her.

Everything she did as a young woman is disappearing. Her fight against the abortion law, her fight for equal wages for all.

As a young woman, Alice Schwarzer was a heroine.

As a grandmother, she is a bogeyman.


Yours, FJ Wagner
