Abstract

Women in the Catholic World Facing Pandemic. Gendered Activism · Studies on religion in Italy at the time of Covid-19 have investigated the influence of the pandemic on the trend of religiosity in the country, both in its traditional and new forms. But the study of the life of Italian Catholic women during the most acute phase of the health emergency was completely neglected. This absence also reflects a lacuna in the contemporary sociological debate : the scarcity of research that investigates both the religiosity of Italian women and the female Catholic protagonism. The article aims to help fill this gap by investigating how Catholic activists have reacted to the pandemic. To this end, the experience of « Women for the Church », a group founded in 2017 by Paola Lazzarini, a sociology and journalist, will be examined. This lens will allow us to extend our gaze beyond the experience of these activists, to start a broader reasoning on how practicing Catholic women have faced the absence of public rites, finding alternative solutions for themselves and their families.
