Alessandro Gilioli in the preface writes: "Before the economic crisis, in 2008, the average hourly wage of women in Italy was 5.0 percent lower than that of men, while today the difference is 7.2". It is precisely with the consequences of the recession on gender divides that this new ebook of the WISTER-SGI Network opens, which is right between research, politics, sociology and widespread culture, including that of language. “The crisis, as often happens, in reality has above all stripped bare and emphasized historical, ancient and deep-rooted problems: for example, the decrease in welfare services has weighed more on women because it is on their shoulders that it is still burdened more the work of caring for children or the elderly, in the family. In the same way, the extreme flexibility of the labor market could only have more robust consequences for new mothers” continues Gilioli.

The publication collects a series of reflections on some gender issues told and treated through various male sensitivities and perceptions. In this case, the decision to privilege only male authors in dealing with these issues was made precisely because gender issues ARE NOT and must not be, as unfortunately often happens, the prerogative only of reflections and sensitivity to women since it is in diversity, understood as a value and not as a discriminating factor that one can grasp and deepen all-round reflections with different and positive nuances and sensitivities and necessary for the demolition of the many stereotypes and barriers that still today in 2015 characterize our society.

The ebook will be presented in Rome on 9 July 2015 at 10:00 in the Sala del Cenacolo, Complesso di Vicolo Valdina, Vicolo Valdina 3/a. In addition to the curators Flavia Marzano and Emma Pietrafresa, some authors will also intervene.
