The Seminar will present the results of the research project “Mass Media in the Redistribution of Power” carried out by the Fondazione G. Brodolini for the European Commission. The research analysed the gender stereotypes found in the portrayal of women politicians by the mass media, in particular how women involved in politics were represented by the main television networks during the campaign for the European Elections 2004.
These are just some of the answers that the research has tried to answer. 23 interviews were also carried out with women politicians, journalists and communications experts in order to directly analyse the factors that hinder and promote a greater participation of women in politics.
The speakers at the seminar will be: Milly Buonanno (expert in Communication Sociology), Mariella Gramaglia (Councillor for communication and equal opportunities policies for the Municipality of Rome), members of the Italian and European Parliaments: Pia Locatelli, Alessandra Mussolini, Amalia Sartori, Livia Turco, Giovanna Grignaffini and the journalist Lucia Annunziata. The debate will be coordinated by the journalist Concita De Gregorio.

The Teatro Astragali chose this drama by Aeschylus, the most ancient tragedy we have in full, because he told the story from the defeated side. The assumption of “the enemy's sight” permits the confrontation with the otherness.
