Women in the Mafia are taking a leading role. They kill for revenge, buy arms, run extortion rackets, recycle drug money. Some want to be bosses themselves. Claire Longrigg has tracked these women down and they have talked to her at length. In this brave and vivid book she describes the traditional - and changing - role of women in the Cosa Nostra, both in Italy and the USA. She writes too, of how women have used their knowledge of the Mafia to escape from it, by turning informer to win freedom from violent marriages and to give their children a future. This movement has started a social revolution. The Mafia can no longer depend on women to be silent martyrs- in the future they will either be partners - or they will bring the organisation down.
Women of Honour

Authors: Milka Kahn, Anne Véron
Categories: SOCIAL SCIENCE
Type: BOOK - Published: 2017 - Publisher: Oxford University Press
The role of women in the Italian mafias has long been overlooked. So who are they? Pure and virtuous Madonnas or dangerous Godmothers? Reduced to victim status and relegated to domestic life, women serve as the mafia's respectable facade: virtuous and docile. But, as Milka Kahn and Anne Véron reveal in this absorbing book, women have always been at the heart of Italy's criminal organisations. While the men are behind bars or on the run, it is left to their wives and mothers to uphold and pass on the 'family values'. Once widowed, some push their sons to vendetta; others become mafia chiefs in their own right. Yet many also decide to risk their lives, collaborating with the authorities and renouncing mafia society in search of normality. Through first-hand accounts of submission, complicity and revolt, Women of Honour paints a complex and fascinating portrait of the women in Italy's mafias who have overcome a culture of silence to share their extraordinary stories.

Was würden Sie tun, wenn Sie das Gefühl haben, dass Ihr Chef Sie gern loswerden möchte, in Ihrem Unternehmen aber leider die übliche Form der Entlassung nicht die Kündigung, sondern die Ermordung ist? Halten Sie es für besonders klug, einem Mafioso, der für seine Brutalität bekannt ist, ein Paket mit faulen Anleihen anzudrehen? Oder Ihrer Frau auszuplaudern, wer alles bei der Cosa Nostra nach Ihrer Pfeife tanzt, um Eindruck zu schinden? Federico Varese berichtet in seinem spannenden Buch vom Leben und Sterben der Mafiosi, das er so nah und privat erkundet hat wie kaum jemand vor ihm. Die Mafia ist eine verschlossene Welt voller Gewalt und Härte, in die kein Außenstehender je Einblick bekommt. Hinter den Mauern des Schweigens aber gibt es eine Gemeinschaft mit eigenen Regeln und Werten – und es gibt das Mafia-Leben. Federico Varese hat sich tief ins Herz des organisierten Verbrechens gewagt und kennt Gangster in Italien, Russland, Hongkong und Japan. Sein Buch gibt einen intimen Einblick in die Lebensweise der Mafiosi: die bizarren Rituale und schmutzigen Geschäfte, das Familienleben und den beruflichen Stress, das Sexualleben und die unerfreulichen Todesarten jener Männer, die zu den gefährlichsten Menschen der Welt gehören.

Gender and Memory

Type: BOOK - Published: 2017-07-12 - Publisher: Routledge
Gender and Memory brings together contributions from around the world and from a range of disciplines--history and sociology, socio-linguistics and family therapy, literature--to create a volume that confronts all those concerned with autobiographical testimony and narrative, both spoken and written. The fundamental theme is the shaping of memory by gender. This paperback edition includes a new introduction by Selma Leydesdorff, coeditor of the Memory and Narrative series of which this volume is a part. Are the different ways in which men and women are recalled in public and private memory and the differences in men's and women's own memories of similar experiences, simply reflections of unequal lives in gendered societies, or are they more deeply rooted? The sharply differentiated life experiences of men and women in most human societies, the widespread tendencies for men to dominate in the public sphere and for women's lives to focus on family and household, suggest that these experiences may be reflected in different qualities of memory. The contributors maintain that memories are gendered, and that the gendering of memory makes a strong impact on the shaping of social spaces and expressive forms as the horizons of memory move from one generation to the next.
