This chapter discusses the ideologies on gender and family that enlightened daily practice within two organizations: Family Aid and Women United. It examines in closer detail the methods of these two organizations and the services that they provide. It also studies gender proficiency and its negotiation, which happened sometime during the 1990s. This chapter reveals that Family Aid is an organization founded by Catholic women whose mission is to preserve life and to create “good” mothers, while Women United is an organization started by women who have political roots in Italy's communist party and who aim for unity among women and recognize gender difference.
