The Vancouver Reggio Association is hosting Sabine Lingenauber and Janine von Niebelshuetz.
Researchers Sabine Lingenauber and Janine von Niebelschuetz will share their multi-year research project documenting the experiences of the strong women of Reggio Emilia. They will include some clips from their 3-part film documentary.
From 1943 to 1973, hundreds of women in Reggio Emilia struggled collectively for day nurseries and nursery schools. They did so as partisans, activists, and politicians, together with male and female citizens. Women activists of various generations were united by values, goals, and friendships. Some protagonists continued the struggle as municipal, provincial, and regional councillors, or as members of the national parliament. These women translated their values into decisions and actions, thus helping the establishment and spread of day nurseries and nursery schools in Reggio Emilia.
