Abstract

Popular Paremii, especially traditional proverbs, often express a strong feeling of discrimination and contempt towards women through forms of verbal and symbolic violence. Therefore, in order to avoid the formation of a particular form of prejudice, such as sexism, the knowledge and the correct interpretation of our cultural heritage become fundamental to identify the causes of legitimation and reiteration of gender asymmetry, understood as the female subordination within a strongly androcentric community, which inevitably pours over the way of conceiving and representing the role of women in society. The main objective of the article is to propose a reflective review of the stereotypes and prejudices configured in a corpus of Spanish, Italian, and Sicilian Paremii about women and therefore grouped in the thematic area of female personality. In this article, we will try to understand and compare, through the contrastive analysis of the above-mentioned Paremii , what are people’s perceptions of women and the attitudes people assume towards them within two different societies, united by the same geographical space and from deep historical cultural contacts.

Las paremias populares, en particular los refranes tradicionales, expresan a menudo un fuerte sentimiento de discriminación y desprecio contra la mujer mediante formas de violencia verbal y simbólica. Por tanto, es imprescindible aprender a conocer e interpretar nuestro patrimonio cultural para poder identificar las causas de legitimación y reiteración de la asimetría de género, entendida en términos de subordinación femenina y privilegios masculinos que inevitablemente vierten en la forma de concebir y representar a la sociedad. El objetivo central del artículo es proponer una revisión reflexiva de los estereotipos y prejuicios configurados en un corpus de refranes italianos, españoles y sicilianos atribuidos a la mujer, agrupados en el ámbito temático de la personalidad femenina. En este estudio, trataremos, por tanto, de acercarnos a través del contraste de paremias, a la percepción que se tiene de la mujer y de las actitudes que se toman ante ella en dos sociedades, la española y la italiana, acomunadas por el mismo espacio geográfico y por profundos contactos históricos culturales.
