Omaggio a Daphne Caruana Galizia, giornalista e blogger di denuncia politica e civile, uccisa oggi. “Phenomenal Woman” di Maya Angelou.

omaggioRendiamo omaggio a questa donna che in dato modo ha rappresentato il vero modo di fare informazione nel nostro tempo, il coraggio della denuncia politica e civile senza avere potenti padrini alle spalle: un esempio mirabile per lo pseudo giornalismo italico da salotto. Qui sotto la pagina del suo blog,, come si presenta adesso…. Vuoto e muto, con l’ultimo aggiornamento alle 2.09 di oggi, e poi di seguito una straordinaria composizione di Maya Angelou, altra donna meravigliosa.



Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
