the sad memory of Fantine from Les Miserables is back

Struggling against the crisis in Spain, some women sell their hair to supplement their income.

A bitter taste of deja vu where the sad memory of Fantine from Les Miserables is back.

Victor Hugo was inspired by the news items of his time.

In a country like Spain where the painful dreams of Providence disintegrate in front of the unfulfilled promises of liberalism, one can find an echo of the indictment of the writer concerning the inheritance of poverty and women.

As if replaying the same story in the heart of our liberal democracies, the same tragedy that combines social law and moral law in a bad way, extends its shadow again.

The same misery of all time, forces women to sell shares of themselves.
