I am a university student and am doing a research project on the feminist movement in Italy. Do you know of any useful links/websites that might be of interest for me? Thank-you, Antonia Lloyd

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. Though I know very little about the feminist movement in Italy, shortly after receiving your email, I came across a few random resources that might be able to help you:

1.) One being a novel The Silent Duchess by Dacia Maraini about a woman in Italy who finds her voice. A fictional account, which certainly has non-fiction elements to it

. 2.) On February 19, 2000, Drexel University (based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) will host an all day conference on female Italian-American writers. The event is underwrited by the A. William Salomone Collection, which contains 6,000 books on Italy's history. Learn more by contacting the professor in charge: Professor Nunzio Pernicone, Pernicon@drexel.edu.

3.) The feminist anthology by Robin Morgan, Sisterhood Is Global, also has an entry for Italy--and includes vital statistics about the situation for women in Italy. If you send me your mailing address, I would be happy to send you this entry. You can also buy the book via the FEMINIST.COM bookstore.
