Partisan Diary: A Woman's Life in the Italian Resistance written by Ada Gobetti and translated and edited by CIES Visiting Fellow Jomarie Alano

Partisan Diary: A Woman's Life in the Italian Resistance, written by Ada Gobetti and translated and edited by CIES Visiting Fellow Jomarie Alano, will be released this September by Oxford University Press. The book offers the first account available in English of an Italian woman's participation in the Italian Resistance (Resistenza) that covers the entire period between September 1943 and April 1945. Partisan Diary also makes a singular contribution to women's history by chronicling the experiences of many Italian women who not only participated actively in the Resistenza, but who continued their fight for women's rights after the war.
