1968 (C20th)
Location: Milan, Italy Creator: Ansano Giannarelli The documentary addresses the condition of the working woman in the Italian society of the sixties, through the emblematic story of three women filmed during three different days: a Saturday, one Sunday, a Monday, in Milan. Work in the factory, trade union activity, work at home: so spend the days for working women, without breaks, without stops, without their own time; while Sunday spends in the recovery of things not made at home, accumulated and postponed necessities. In these years only twenty women out of a hundred work in productive activities: paid less, they are exploited and often fired. Precisely among the women who work, especially among the youngest, the awareness of their rights and awareness of the struggle to be conducted to change society, economic relations, the mentality of Men, conservative habits and traditions that weigh on all women. 01.
