THE OTHER WOMEN TRUST:
THE VICTORIAN WOMEN TRUST, founded twenty years ago, based in Victoria, Australia. Much more organized and stronger than we are. It has been and is an important symbolic support. It is the only other Women's Trust with similar goals in the world.
THE HYPATIA TRUST, has been created to collect and make available, published and personal documents concerning the achievements of women in all aspect of their lives.
LIBRERIA DELLE DONNE DI MILANO, “an active entity existing since 1975, has among its participants more than forty women. It is a place of discussion, or better, it is essentially a political place. It has nothing to do with institutions, parties, or homogeneous groups. Political conviction grows from the thoughts on the experiences that every woman has, not just from being together in a women's enterprise but also in the world, and it is based on relationship. But what we have here is something intangible, something that cannot be reduced to what we can express in words. You must be there. You must live it. So the words we write here do not express, cannot express the idea of the richness of what we live…”
The website project was instigated to give visibility and voice to women who desire to express opinions, competences and qualities in many different fields of culture, of politics, of society and institutions. They are sometimes outstanding contributors, as testified by the World Women Conference (Peking, 1995). The website strives to inform and share culture with women and men; to promote a dialogue with the vast public; and be a place or better yet a community of experiences, of life, of thought, of culture.
LIBERA UNIVERSITA’ DELLE DONNE is a cultural association leading research into the relationship between feminine identity and culture’s norms.
La Casa Internazionale delle Donne di Roma (The International Women’s House of Rome), “a project of Roman women movement, originated since the Via del Governo Vecchio house’s occupation, taking over the inheritance of the Women’s House created in that period. More than forty associations, federated to the Feminist Separatist Centre (CFS) and to Feminist Federative International Association (AFFI), created a big project, unique in Italy, containing history and successes of women’s liberation movement.”
MATRIMONEY. It contains women’s inheritance, women’s history and Italian feminism of the last twenty years. “Matrimoney is where relationships among us live and grow, producing richness in thought, creativity, technological solution, emotion and knowledge ready to merge again in the website, and expand it.”
CASA DELLE DONNE MALTRATTATE, “We are an association of women, sprung from the U.D.I.
(Union of Italian Women). We deal with abuse within the family. Violence against women. We believe that Women listening to Women can break the cycle of violence.
