The feminist movement gains momentum in Italy, advocating for reproductive rights, equal pay, and an end to discrimination in the workplace. Women demand greater representation in politics and society.

The first women’s association in Italy, the National Council of Italian Women (Consiglio Nazionale delle Donne Italiane, or CNDI), is founded to advocate for women's rights, including suffrage and access to education.

Italy introduces a law requiring political parties to ensure at least 30% of their candidates are women in national and European Parliament elections.

After World War I, Italian women gain the right to vote in national elections but only under certain conditions. They must be at least 30 years old, literate, and belong to specific socioeconomic classes.

Women are granted the right to attend university, although access is limited and higher education remains largely inaccessible to them.

The first woman, Emma Bonino, is appointed as Minister of Foreign Affairs in Italy, breaking gender barriers in politics.

The Italian government launches the National Plan of Action Against Gender-Based Violence, aiming to combat domestic violence and support victims.

Ongoing efforts continue to advocate for women's rights in Italy, with a focus on addressing issues such as gender-based violence, representation in leadership roles, and achieving true equality in all spheres of society.

Following the end of World War II and the fall of Fascism, Italian women achieve full suffrage in the new Republican Constitution. They are granted equal voting rights with men in all elections.
