This video was the result of a two-day event launched by the PTTA Collective.
PTTA stands for Progetto Territoriale Transfemminsta Anitoppressione (Anti Oppression Transfeminist Territorial Project) but the word PTTA is also an expression in local dialect meaning "Bitch". The political action was organised to raise awareness about gender discrimination in the South of Italy.
The event consisted of a series of interviews with people coming from different social backgrounds divided by age and professions. Questions were extracted by a documentary from the 70's on the same topic to compare answers and how the perception towards the feminine cause has changed in the past 50 years.
As reported in the video, among the people invited only 1 man out of 7attended the event and actually joined the interview. More interestingly, the only male participant was not even Italian, but a migrant from Senegal.
