Abstract

As history teaches us, both social and institutional changes have given women the right to participate in politics. Nevertheless, discrimination based on sex – regarding the access to public office – still remains a dreadful problem, common to contemporary democracies. In order to solve this particular issue, the so called positive actions have been introduced. Unfortunately, this means cannot be considered as sufficient: for this reason, comparing different legal systems is the principal method and the only way to guarantee equality in nowadays Italy. Through it, we manage to understand the importance of local entities and of the constitutional justices’ work, in order to educate the whole society valuing the new idea of “gender citizenship”.
