The first presentation in Palermo has been GREAT.
The room was almost full and I recived very positive feedback. I had the chance to share my experience and confront myself with others. I particularly enjoyed the contribution of Giusy Tumminelli, sociologist who made an excursus on the female migratory phenomenon in Sicily:
in the 70s migrant women arrived in Sicily especially for family reunification (passive subjects of migration), but after the '70s the migratory phenomenon of women took on a certain autonomy in the sense that women begin to emigrate from the oppressed countries for work reasons, women fleeing persecution, wars in their own countries and starting from the sun.
