EWA presents the book “L’equivoco della famiglia” by Professor Chiara Saraceno

On 31st January EWA hosted at the “Istituto Italiano di Cultura” of Brussels, the presentation of the book “L’equivoco della famiglia” written by Chiara Saraceno, Italian sociologist and former Professor at University Torino, Italy, and Research professor at Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin fuer Sozialforschung.

The event has been moderated by Eva Giovannini, journalist of public Italian broadcasting RAI3

The discussion has been focused on the misunderstanding of family, meant as a set of stereotypes and social habits that involve women’s segregation, imbalance between man and women in sharing family’s responsibilities, and negatively affect Italian labour market and social development. The debate has involved the participation of audience and faced ethical issues on parenthood, civil rights and the existing multiple types of family which still do not find reward in Italian laws.
