“Proto-citizens”. Cittadine precoci
On the 40th anniversary of the 1976’s Portuguese Constitution, which granted universal voting rights for the first time, the Institute of Contemporary History (Universidade Nova de Lisboa) will be hosting an international conference on the topic “Women, Citizenship and Voting Rights”. This meeting will seek to analyse the role of women in the election processes and examine the different modalities and practices on the defence for women's suffrage in the long term. The conference promotes the study of these aspects in an interdisciplinary, transnational and comparative perspective and in different types of regimes.
Federica Re, PhD student in History, Culture, Social and Institutional Theories (XXX course), will be presenting the paper “Proto-Citizens”: Lombard Women during the Italian Unification Process.
