Why Is Everyone Freaking Out About The New Italian PM?

View descriptionShare

For the first time since World War II, a far-right fascist political party has taken the reigns of the Italian parliament.

Its leader Georgia Meloni is the first female Prime Minister of the country, a fact that feminists across the globe would usually be celebrating but there are some very serious concerns about the views the journalist-turned-politician holds.

In today’s episode, The Quicky team takes a look at who Georgia Meloni is and why she has the world worried about a slide back to a very dark time in our history.
