    Londres: el Monumento a las Mujeres de la II Guerra Mundial

    La capital del Reino Unido manteniendo vivo el recuerdo de sus momentos más gloriosos y a la vez más duros, los días de la II Guerra Mundial, a través de finos hilos que el viajero observador no tendrá problemas en detectar. Si la estatua de Churchill cerca de las Casas del Parlamento es ya un poderoso guiño, todavía resulta más explícito el Monumento a las Mujeres de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, situado en Whitehall, en Londres, el primero y único de este tipo en todo el país.

    Eso sí, este monumento que rinde tan merecido homenaje a las damas que lucharon, tanto en vanguardia como en retaguardia, contra el II Reich y sus aliados, fue erigido en el año 2005, con sesenta años de retraso desde que acabara el conflicto armado. En todo caso, más vale tarde que nunca.

    Se trata de un gran bloque de bronce oscuro de más de 7 metros de altura y 5 de anchura en cuyos lados están esculpidas las formas de una serie de vestimentas y uniformes militares colgados de perchas imaginarias. En estas esculturas se intenta representar todos los oficios y labores que desempeñaron las mujeres durante la guerra.

    Ellas fabricaron bombas y aviones, condujeron camiones, sirvieron como centinelas para avisar de la lelgada de ataques aéreos, trabajaron como enfermeras, aunque también en los servicios de comunicaciones, inteligencia y emergencia, además de mil y una tareas administrativas. En suma, una notable contribución al esfuerzo de la guerra. Muchas mujeres valientes fueron condecoaradas y algunas incluso dieron la vida en acto de servicio, independientemente de cual fuera el bando en el que lucharon.

    Hoy, ya en tiempos de paz, es una cuestión de justicia levantar estos monumentos y homenajes a las mujeres que no solo lucharon como los hombres sino que en muchas ocasions soportaron un peso mucho mayor que ellos en el horror de la guerra.
