Personal Modification is not Revolution – By Lea Melandri

Preface

Italian autonomist feminism emerged in the late 1960s and 1970s, in large part as a response to the failures of 1968 and the New Left.

Although seizing spaces to be heard is progress, there has been no progress in the search for justice and clarification in their cases.
