Feminist Lives: Original Participant Interviews Complete

The Feminist Lives project has now completed interviews with all participants from Yasmine Ergas’ original 1978 project. The Feminist Lives project involves re-interviewing a group of Italian Feminists whom Ergas, director of the Specializiation on Gender and Public Policy at SIPA, first interviewed in 1978. By re-interviewing participants, the project seeks to explore the dynamics of narrative and memory, as well as to record the effects of feminism on their lives.

To date, all interviews, including those from 1978, have been transcribed and digitized and will soon be archived. In addition to participants from 1978, supplementary interviews are now underway with the daughters of some of the original interviewees.
