Mussolini the Feminist

Did the Duce improve the status of women in Italy?

From: Mussolini Also Did A Lot of Good


This chapter tackles the premise that the Fascist regime was more open to women’s rights than the regimes that preceded it and have followed it. The author examines how this Facist regime really viewed and treated women, and how it impacted the lives of Italian women.
