ON-DEMAND COFFEE CHAT:
Celebrating Women Suffrage
We mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States, followed by women’s full suffrage in Italy 26 years later. Professors Francesco and Maria Bonavita, who teach Italian and lecture at Casa Belvedere, will lead a discussion on the Italian documentary “Senza Rossetto”. The film’s title translates to “without lipstick” and references the time when women were told to go and vote without lipstick. If traces of lipstick were found on an election card, it could be invalidated.
