Le donne nel regime fascista (Women in the fascist regime)

Victoria de Grazia, Marsilio.

This is the first (and still fundamental) research work on the condition of women from the immediate post-war period and during the Twentieth Century. The reactionary policies of the regime are reconstructed analytically, starting from the need for «return to order» (after the mobilization of the Great War) which fascist governments shared with most conservative public opinion and coincided with the (only partially successful) attempt to exclude women from many sectors of the labour market, starting with education, according to the wishes of the Gentile reform.
