Women in Italy : between commodity and accessory : a critique of the state of modern Italian women through their portrayal on television in the age of Berlusconism

by MacLeod, Devon Marilyn

Abstract

This paper will discuss the spectrum of representation of Italian women from the role of the mother to the role of the prostitute. By looking at Italian television and the government of Silvio Berlusconi, it is possible to see examples of women that are being exploited, and through the work of Italian feminist groups and author Lorella Zanardo, it is possible to see examples of those women fighting this exploitation. This paper will conclude with a discussion of what can be done in Italy to transform the prominent view of Italian women by looking to both historical and modern sources of inspiration.
