Kurzbeschreibung

Based on nearly two years of fieldwork among feminist activists, Giovanna Parmigiani traces the use of the word "femminicidio" (or "femicide") as a tool to mobalize Italian feminists, particularly the Union of Women in Italy (UDI). She provides a careful and searing consideration of the ways in which representations of violence and the politics of this representation are shaping the future of women in Italy and beyond.
