Together with Veronica Giovale and Valeria Cardillo, I hosted the workshop of the 9th edition of the WeWorld Festival. Talks, panels, movies, performances and exhibitions took place on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women; the main issues of the event were female empowerment and gender stereotypes.
The WeWorld Festival is the outcome of the awareness campaign for the elimination of violence against women and their children, a widespread phenomenon in Italy. More than 6 million women in Italy suffer violence. Many of them are mothers. In half of domestic violence cases, children see their mother beaten. The step from being a spectator to becoming a victim is a very small one.
