LubicAdvice: April 2023

International Women’s Day is dedicated to the political, social, and economic achievements of women, but also to reflecting on the inequality and violence they have been and are still subjected to.

On the occasion of this anniversary, with LubicAdvice we wanted to select a few initiatives to remember and support the work done – with courage – so far.

In the Italian and European publishing scene ‘NOIDONNE’ represents a rare example of editorial continuity that has been chronicling – with high-level professional expressions and with attention to the national and international cultural and political context – the activities, achievements, thoughts and movements of women since 1944. In detail, the 1946 issue on March 8 after the war./ INFO

Story of the first woman to denounce the violence she suffered in 1960s Sicily. An Italy-France co-production Capri Entertainment and Medset Film, in association with Tenderstories, in collaboration with Rai Cinema, Vision Distribution, and Sky, which will be released in Italian theaters on March 8./ INFO

The reorganization work of the Wikidonne project has revealed that the Italian Wikipedia page is missing a great many relevant women’s biographies. The goal of the “women greater than twenty” initiative is to dedicate the month of March to writing these entries./ INFO

RaiCultura presents a web-doc created to celebrate March 8. Historical videos selected from the RAI archives, combined with exclusive content to retrace the main stages of women’s conquest of civil and political rights./ INFO
