Italian Women

Italy joined the Nazis in fighting the Allies in Europe. However, there was a strong resistance group in Italy, and women were a part of it. According to, one quarter of resistance organizations were women. These women did many tasks like being messengers, spies, and armed protesters. One profound organization Italian women were a part of was the OSS. The OSS was organized by the US to get insight about the enemy. The OSS would collaborate with the Italian Resistance to make surprise attacks along with destroying the Nazi-fascism party. Women played their role, by assisting the OSS with information. These women risked their lives to transport supplies and information across Nazi boarders. It’s inspiring how many women took part in standing up for what they believe in, even when they were put in difficult situations.
