Antonio Bassolino, Gianfranco Verderame and Enzo Amendola presents at "Fondazione Sudd" the book written by Gloria Marina Bellelli "The Algeria Woman".
The Mediterraneo Foundation support this evento.

" In the preface by Anna Maria Cossiga you understand how the book traces the troubled history of Algeria seen through the eyes of women: "the struggle to put an end to French colonialism; the socialist period and the one dramatic of Islamist terrorism; the policy of national reconciliation initiated in 2005.it also adds a new facet and particularly relevant emphasizing the essential contribution of Algerian women that, challenging the strict Muslim tradition, and often their own families, have taken up arms and have turned to underground for the sake of their country.
These are the women who re-tell the story of Algeria, through fragments of personal memory now joyful and nostalgic, now loads of violence which, unfortunately, often accompanies the struggles for liberation and democracy. The heroines of these pages come from various sectors of society and not just they tell us the story of a country, but also the story of the condition of women in the country. Tortured and raped in the name of freedom and human rights, they have been forgotten by the same policy which so much of their lives have dedicated."
