Pretty in pink

There is a public attention to women presence in the public life. In the italian political world, very old and 99,9% masculine, women are seldom used as an attraction for the election rather than an option for a different prospective.

So they came up with “Quote Rosa” or “Pink Share”, meaning with this that a certain percentage of candidates or member of a certain body must be women. So the Major of Rome had to dismiss the government that “rules” Rome, and that was questioned few times in the past for having only one woman.

The Major was afraid that the fore-coming court decision on this matter would have ruled against the city government. So he just dismissed the old “Giunta” and appointed a new one. With exactly the same people. Thus the court can’t rule anymore as “that” government ceased to exist yesterday, and if someone has (again) something against the new one has to file a new legal action.
