Contemporary Women

On February 22nd, the leading women magazine Donna Moderna published an article I wrote about an issue I deeply care about: it focuses on the photo project Roki, an initiative started by the photographer Federica Cicuttini in order to sensitise and discuss about the Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome. It affects around one baby girl every 4.500/5.000 newborns, resulting in a totally or partially missing uterus and vagina.  Talking about Roki girls (the nickname they chose for themselves) means to talk about femininity, women rights, frailty and courage. It was a privilege to have the chance to collect their stories.
