The 6th edition of the national competition ” On the streets of equality” is aimed at promoting local historical research in schools of all levels and restoring visibility to women who have distinguished themselves for their literary, artistic and scientific activity, for humanitarian and social commitment or other merits. A prize-giving ceremony was organized on 30 April in Rome.
Toponomastica Femminile (Female toponymy) was born on Facebook in January 2012 with the idea of setting up research, publishing data and putting pressure on every single territory so that streets, squares, gardens and urban places in a broad sense, are dedicated to women to compensate for the obvious sexism that characterizes the current status.
The main objective of the group, which now has over 9,000 participants and forms an association, is to spread gender culture, to give visibility to women who have contributed, in all fields, to improving society.
