Although she works outside the home as a secretary with some real responsibility, she is expected to do everything in the domestic sphere.

The power of bringing the private into the public sphere, literally by the act of publishing, is thus made clear; the voice of a woman, once heard, cannot be turned to ashes and swept aside as if it had never spoken. Quaderno proibito traces many of the interrelationships that make up the family unit, and none is more striking than the diachronic female connections among different generations. Valeria often refers to her mother, who trained her to believe that women should never be idle (read, should never give themselves over to contemplation), should never work outside of the home, and should fulfill their role of perfect wife and mother with unquestioning submission.
