How to cite this Dataset


This dataset is part of the outputs of the research project Virginia Woolf and Italian Readers funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 838658.

The dataset contains the data collected from workshops addressed to college students and teachers in collaboration, respectively, with Istituto Salesiani, Milan, Istituto Erasmo da Rotterdam, Sesto San Giovanni (Milan) and Istituto Alcide De Gasperi, Borgo Valsugana (Trento). The workshops focused on Point 5 of the UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals: Gender equality, and involved the active participation of the students, who were asked to answer a short anonymous survey in the form of paper questionnaires (which became Google Modules when the workshops had to be made online because of the Covid-19 pandemic) consisting of 10 questions with self-anchoring scale answers, designed to test their perception of gender equality.

The same questionnaires were handed out to the students before the workshop and afterwards.

The purpose of the questionnaire was to understand if the students’ gender equality perceptions had changed after the workshop and the reading of Virginia Woolf’s essays.
