As the great Virginia Woolf once said: “ For most of history, Anonymous was a Woman.” Well, we intend to rid ourselves of that anonymity and celebrate some of the great women from Rome and Italy’s past. The first (as far as we are aware) Feminist tour of Rome will explore the role of women throughout Rome’s vast history. We will discuss and celebrate the amazing history of women from the foundations of Rome to the 21st Century. The men who dominate Roman history; Emperors, Cardinals, Popes, probably would not be where they are in history had it not been for some of these women. Our tour ends a little closer to home, in the 20th Century, with Franca Viola, influential in the 1960s in Italy for refusing a "rehabilitating marriage" after suffering kidnapp and rape. She was one of the first Italian women who had been raped to publicly refuse to marry her rapist. Instead, she and her family successfully appealed to the law to prosecute the rapist. The trial was to have ripple effects throughout Italy. This tour explores themes of female empowerment and female victories, but also of rape, manipulation, and abuse. It is not suitable for young children. Parental discretion advised.
