Nina e i diritti delle donne

(Nina and women's rights) Book not yet available in English


What are women’s rights? What is women’s freedom? What does difference mean? Through the story of three women of three different generations – Nina’s mother, grandmother and great-grandmother – the book tells the story of the journey towards women’s rights in Italy.


Nina and women’s rights is an ambitious and well-presented book. It is written with simple and clear words and well-illustrated by Rachele Lo Piano. It is no coincidence that it was awarded the Elsa Morante Junior award in 2012. By alternating narrative passages with informative insights, the book illustrates how Italy has changed through the evolution of women’s lives and society as a whole: it also shows that nothing should be taken for granted and that many rights, which today may seem obvious, are the result of long struggles. An appendix explains some legislative conquests and presents some of the great women who have contributed to shape history. Moreover, some frames provide details of the major themes touched upon in the book. A book perhaps unique in Italy on these issues, recommended for girls and boys of all ages and their families.
