Description of Lecture

100 years ago World War One consumed Europe both on the battlefield and at the homefront. Confined for centuries to the shadows of the private sphere, women suddenly became essential to the war effort and stepped into the light of the national stage. By the thousands, women responded to these appeals by putting on uniforms and making visible their patriotism, cutting a new pattern for female participation in civic society. Allison Scardino Belzer will discuss Italian women’s wartime activities and how they shaped demands for citizenship.
