WGS 3559 (Women's Rights in Modern Italy)

Course Name: 
Women's Rights in Modern Italy
Units: 
3

 

This course explores how modern Italian literature, cinema, and the arts have represented the quest for women’s rights from bodily autonomy to equal pay as well as emergencies related to women’s socio-cultural perception such as the high rate of feminicide, rape and other forms of gender-based violence. What can Italian literature, cinema and arts from the recent past teach us about the global backlash of patriarchy against women in the 2010s?
