Crucially, these experiences were understood as shared. Belief in the universal subordination of women and their international sisterhood was thus, for many, a central tenet of their feminism. This assumption of shared experience was to lead to increasing selfcriticism and fragmentation as over the 1970s and 1980s the movement became aware of difference, at first in terms of sexuality, and then later in terms of race (Mackey 1991:2).

My view of Italian society has also changed: after working in an Italian state university and being exposed to the patronage and clientelism that only later acquired the descriptive neologism of ‘tangentopoli’ (or ‘kick-back city’), I realised why my friends often described employment practices and work relations as the ‘dark side’ of the Italian experience (see Shore 1989).
