This essay analyzes the ways in which the narrative practices at work in early Italian feminism offer an interesting example of the frutiful connection between politics and narration. By drawing on Hannah Arendt, Adriana Cavarero and the thought of sexual difference, this article briefly reconstructs the role that narrative played in feminist politics and theory and it claims that the narrative turn in feminism not only gave voice to new political subjects and their awareness, but also contributed to renewed notions of subjectivity, embodied self, the relation between self and other.

Abstract

This essay analyzes the ways in which the narrative practices at work in early Italian feminism offer an interesting example of the frutiful connection between politics and narration. By drawing on Hannah Arendt, Adriana Cavarero and the thought of sexual difference, this article briefly reconstructs the role that narrative played in feminist politics and theory and it claims that the narrative turn in feminism not only gave voice to new political subjects and their awareness, but also contributed to renewed notions of subjectivity, embodied self, the relation between self and other.
