Andreea Pele, “Tessendo storie del passato. Le donne romene sotto il comunismo”, traduzione di Giancarlo Covella, pp. 189-196 [Abstract]
The following paper discusses an anthology of short stories, collected under the title Tovarăşe de drum. Experienţa feminină în communism. These stories, written by women, members of Romanian academia who spent a part of their life under Communism, hinge on two major themes: womanhood and deprivation. Womanhood further branches out in three subthemes, namely the female body under Communism and the regime’s constant efforts to undermine it, motherhood – the putative role ascribed to women under the regime – and abortion – the tremendous backlash to the state’s push for reproduction. Deprivation, however, is the common denominator to these women writers’ memories and the paper discusses how it came to compound women’s burden during Communism. In the end, the paper points to the importance of these stories’ highly emotional content in the way Romanian women relate to issues of gender.
