Women were protagonists of the Resistance: providing assistance, fighting in the first person, risking their lives. A long-silenced "half of History" to which Benedetta Tobagi gives voice and face, starting from photographs collected in dozens of archives. What emerges is an unprecedented family album of the Republic, in which the pages that have been torn out, or belittled, are put back in their place: the pages featuring women.
The Resistance of Women is dedicated 'To all the ancestresses': if it were a map, there would be a big 'You are here' at the end. Along with the questions: And you, now, what will you do? How will you pick up this legacy?
