The essay is about the feminist practice of self-help and analyses its political implications in women’s liberation movement in the ‘70s. This political practice was spread in Italy by feminist groups for women’s health. These groups are inspired by the American experiences about it, but they see the American pragmatic approach in an original way. In Italy these considerations about the body influence also the thoughts of political feminist groups not directly related to women’s health. This idea contributes to create a more complex vision of women’s movement
