Anna Maria after:
Anna Maria Mozzoni, born 1837, died in 1920, was an Italian feminist, author and journalist. She engaged in female voting rights and has been called the founder of the Italian women's rights movement.
Anna Maria was the daughter of the noble mathematics Guiseppe Mozzoni and Delfina Piantanida. She was married to the ten year old younger Count Malatesta Covo Simoni between 1886 and 1893.
She was educated at a Milan girls school, but also had access to works by the author of the Enlightenment at home, and became an early atheist and republican. In 1864, she criticized the Italian Civil Code with the writing La Donna e i suoi rapporti sociali. She translated the 1877 The Oppression of Women by John Stuart Mill into Italian. In 1878, she represented Italy at the International Conference on Women's Rights in Paris. She founded Italy's first women's movement, Lega promotrice degli interessi femminili, in Milan in 1879. Mozzoni attracted much attention when she visited Giovanni Passannante in 1885 with parliamentarian Agostino Bertani, who had been imprisoned for his assassination attempt on the monarch and expressed sympathy for him: shortly thereafter Passannante was declared mentally ill and avoided execution.
Mozzoni protested in the public debate against the fact that women were seen as intelligently inferior by nature: she acknowledged that most women were ignorant, not by birth, but from lack of education. Due to the fact that most women were uneducated, she initially and for quite some time only demanded municipal voting rights for women before she began to propagate for national voting rights. She presented a proposal on female voting rights to the Italian Parliament in 1877 and 1906, both times in vain.
