Rome, June 10 - Isabella Rauti, an education
professor and journalist, was appointed Monday as Italy's policy
adviser on gender violence and femicide.
The appointment demonstrates the national government's
commitment to dealing with these issues, said Interior Minister
and Deputy Premier Angelino Alfano.
Combating violence against women and femicide is a "real
social emergency," that should be addressed through an
immediate, inter-ministerial task force, said Rauti.
At 50, Rauti has a PhD in education, is a university
professor, and has worked for various government ministries
including the Lazio regional government.
Lazio is the home region to Italian capital city of Rome
where Rauti's husband, Gianni Alemanno, is currently running for
re-election as Rome's mayor.
Like Alfano, Alemanno is a member of three-time premier
Silvio Berlusconi's center-right People of Freedom (PdL) party.
Rauti has also led several non-profit organizations,
including Hands off Women (HOW), which promotes women's rights
and a stop to violence.
Rauti has deep roots in Italy's centre-right politics.
Her father Pino Rauti was former leader of Italy's main
postwar neo-Fascist party, the Italian Social Movement, and was
once a diehard soldier in Benito Mussolini's puppet regime of
Salo.
