Published at the end of 1906, “Una donna” is one of the first feminist books to appear in our country.

If you are looking for an impressive phrase to write on the card that will accompany the inevitable mimosa, here is a series of author quotes The long life of Marianna Ucria , Dacia Maraini
Marianna belongs to a noble eighteenth-century Palermo family. Her fate should be that of any young noblewoman but her deaf-mute condition makes her different: ‘Her silence had taken over her like a disease or perhaps a vocation’. Thus unknown knowledge opens up to her: she Marianna learns the alphabet, reads and writes because these are the only means of communication with the world. She develops an acute sensitivity that pushes her to reflect on the human condition, on the female one, on the injustices of which the weakest are victims and of which she herself has been a victim. Yet she Marianna performs the gestures of every woman, she rejoices and suffers, she will know the passion. A room of your own , Virginia Woolf
In October 1928 Virginia Woolf was invited to give two lectures on the theme ‘Women and the novel’. It is an opportunity to systematically elaborate her many reflections on the female universe and literary creativity. The result is this extraordinary essay, a real manifesto on the female condition from its origins to the present day, which traces the woman-writing relationship from the point of view of a centuries-old exclusion, through the double lens of historical rigor and passion for literature. How could a woman, the English writer ask herself, devote herself to literature if she did not have ‘money and a room of her own’
Thus a path unfolds through the literature of the last few centuries which, following the symbolic day of a writer of our time, becomes clear and dry reflection on the condition of women. A classic of writing and thinking. With a writing by Marisa Bulgheroni. Women’s Day, the 10 most famous poems dedicated to the female universe
Many have written about women, in different eras and with different connotations. There are numerous poems whose central theme is the Accabadora woman , Michela Murgia
Why Maria ended up living in Bonaria Urrai’s house is a mystery that Soreni finds it hard to understand. The old woman and the little girl walk the streets of the town followed by a train of malicious comments, yet it is so simple: Tzia Bonaria has taken Maria with her, she will make her grow up and make her his heir, asking her for her presence and care in return. for when she needs it.
What everyone knows, however, is that Maria does not imagine, and that Tzia Bonaria Urrai sews clothes and comforts souls, knows spells and hexes, but when necessary she is ready to enter homes to bring a merciful death. Her is the loving and final gesture of accabadora, the last mother. With a rough and at the same time poetic language, Michela Murgia tells the story of Sardinia in the 1950s, its rules, its prohibitions, its language, its balance. The Beatrici, Stefano Benni
Eight female monologues. A frenzied nun, an anxious woman and a career woman, a shrewish old woman and a dreaming old woman, a restless young woman, a cruel teenager and a wolfwife. A continuum of invectives, love spasms, rants, pompous sentences, winking confidences, sexual ravings, dreamy whispers, stiff deliberations. Benni’s texts tell and denounce on the one hand the degeneration of the female role in society (and of society as a whole) and on the other the importance of women’s autonomy and free will. Story of a blackcap , Giovani Verga
Today perhaps it is not Verga’s most widely read novel, but this first proof of the writer (published in volume in 1871) enjoyed a great success.

My mother was a saint, my father a grand duke in disguise, my cousin Edoardo a ras of the afterlife deserts and my aunt Concetta a queen prophetess.

Thus besieged by such ‘magnificent’ shadows, the narrator of Menzogna and Sorcery sets off towards the necropolis of his own family myth: like an archaeologist who leaves for a legendary city.
