Une activité politique féminine conservatrice avant le droit de suffrage en France et en Italie. Socio histoire de la politisation des femmes catholiques au sein de la Ligue patriotique des Françaises (1902-1933) et de l'Unione fra le donne cattoliche d'Italia (1909-1919).

Abstract : This PhD deals with the forms of public and political activism developed by conservative Catholic women in the Italian Unione fra le donne cattoliche d'Italia (UDCI) and the French Ligue patriotique des Françaises (LPDF) before the 1944 and 1945 that allows full citizenship to French and Italian women. It led me to explore in depth two distinct paths by which such organizations managed to mobilize, and politicize conservative women, despite their avowedly non-feminist and non-political ideologies stances. By examining individual political trajectories in the context of collective political stances, this research provides a new insight on processes of politicization at a moment of broader democratization in French and Italian politics (1902-19 in Italy, 1902-33 in France). I could identifyied a “liberal” path of politicization for the French organization: French Catholic Women officially supported the Republic and since 1902 enteredparticipated since 1902 in the political arena through financing and canvassing for male candidates. This path is quite different to the “instransigeant” Italian one. In Italy, since the suffrage was restricted, the Catholic Church forbade Catholic women to enter the political competition. In this perspective, the association used lobbying and cultural action to influence male politicians and led them to propose laws in favour of the Church and of women (i.e. mothers).
