This chapter engages with the core issues highlighted throughout this anthology by critically analysing a feminist phenomenon that emerged in Italy in 2011, the ‘Se non ora, quando?’ (‘If not now, when?’) or SNOQ movement. The chapter explores the evolution of this movement from its inception up to the period immediately following the elections of February 2013. The main features of the movement are examined, including its history and identity, its influence on Italian culture, society and the political scene, as well as its goal of challenging the situation of women within Italy. The capacity of the movement to steer public debate and influence public life will be also addressed by reconstructing the course of its actions.
