Kurzbeschreibung

1. The topic of this book is important not only because of its resonance in Italian and European political conversation, but also in its application to the understanding of political feminist movements globally.

2. Through thorough, ethnography-based work on the recent emergence of femminicidio in Italy it explores gendered violence and representation. Focusing on the figure of the witness, this research explores ways to transcend the dichotomy "victim/survivor" in framing women's reaction to gendered violence.

3. The scholarly audience for this book is broad and cross-disciplinary including those working in the history of Italy, gender studies, performance studies, media studies, feminist studies, visual anthropology, and the study of political activism.
