Postal de 1900

Uma senhorita exemplar serve ao pai e aos irmãos como servirá ao marido, e não faz nem diz nada sem pedir licença. Se tem dinheiro ou berço, acode à missa das sete e passa o dia aprendendo a dar ordens aos serviçais negros, cozinheiras, serventes, babás, amas-de-leite, lavadeiras, e fazendo trabalhos de agulha ou bilro. Às vezes recebe amigas, e até se atreve a recomendar algum livro ousado, sussurando:
— Se você soubesse como me fez chorar...
Duas vezes por semana, à tardinha, passa algumas horas escutando o noivo, sem olhá-lo e sem permitir que chegue perto, ambos sentados no sofá, frente ao olhar atento da tia. Todas as noites, antes de se deitar, reza as ave-marias do rosário e aplica na pele uma infusão de pétalas de jasmim amassadas em água de chuva à luz da lua cheia.
Se o noivo a abandona, ela se transforma subitamente em tia e fica portanto condenada a vestir santos, defuntos e recém-nascidos, a vigiar noivos, a cuidar de doentes, a dar o catecismo e a suspirar pelas noites, na solidão da cama, contemplando o retrato de quem a desdenhou.

Eduardo Galeano, in "MULHERES"


  1. E do aniversário da minha mulher (dia 8) e da minha filha Catarina (hoje)

  2. Que perspectiva de dias e futuro tão sombrios :)
    A minha avó nasceu em 1899 e sempre gostei de ouvir histórias de família, como sobre a minha bisavó que terá sido criada como uma senhorita exemplar, mas que depois teve um futuro diferente dos traçados neste texto.
    De qualquer forma, parece-me que neste nível, será muito melhor ter nascido em 2000 do que em 1900 (ou em 1880 e 1980 para se ser uma senhorita exemplar em 1900 e 2000 :)

  3. Não era fácil ser mulher em 1900. E antes disso também não... ;)

    Será que alguma vez podemos agradecer suficientemente a sufragistas e movimentos de libertação femininos a liberdade que hoje usufruímos?


  4. A minha mãe nasceu em 1914 e, pelo que conta,era mesmo assim.
