The Notebooks of D.i.Re, no. 4
Rewrite. Principles, practices and founding traits of the anti-violence centers ten years after the drafting of the National Charter

The fourth Notebook of the School of Politics by D.i.Re focuses on the reinterpretation of the Charter of the national network of anti-violence centers and women's homes. A necessary revision, to outline a final document that can revise the founding principles of the Charter while remaining anchored to that solid conceptual structure that has its roots in the feminism of the seventies. Strengthened by the objective of creating "identity in movement", the Centers are asking themselves how to continue to carry out their action in the complex framework of the women's movement and of the many souls of feminism.

The fourth notebook, edited by Chiara Veltri, contains contributions by Titti Carrano, Giovanna Zitiello, Marisa Guarneri, Anna Loretoni, Gaetana Morgante, Nicki Norman, Lella Paladino.

Return. Between memory and transformation, new strategies to relaunch anti-violence centers / by Chiara Veltri, Settenove, 2017
