DONNE ITALIANE DI IERI E DI OGGI: Italian Women of Yesterday and Today by M. Castellani

DONNE ITALIANE DI IERI E DI OGGI: Italian Women of Yesterday and Today

By

Publisher: R. Bemporad Firenze

This is a sociological publication, and a propagandist one, prefaced by a letter from Mussolini to the Italian women of today and by the author who outlines what the modern Italian woman is expected to do for her country. Although there are introductory chapters which show what role the woman has played in Italian life from the days of Caesar to the present, the main part of the book deals with the present status quo. The woman in industry, in agriculture, and in national defense. A revealing book -- and an important one today.
