Maria Grazia was an important point of reference and a source of inspiration for the IWF. She gave our early leaders guidance in founding a women’s group and was our first speaker at our inaugural meeting in October 1998.
Thanks to Maria Grazia, the IWF has had the great fortune to have the Centro di Documentazione delle Donne as our ‘sede’, allowing us to have our meetings there, but more importantly, be connected to an incredible network of women.
From all of the women at IWF, we thank you Maria Grazia.
