This paper has the objective to give a general vision of the new conditions of the
women’s public and political action in the I century b.C. At those times the frequent
civil wars took far apart many men from institutional life and allowed matronae to act
in politics. When do women act in politics and which is the typology of their actions?
Do women act in private background, that now has become even politics’context, or do
they act in public background? Through which instruments, and overall through which
languages, do matronae act their strategies? Which role do they act, between the need of
conforming and the boost for development, the male models of political action and previous
female experiences in public life? This paper evidences specific cases of matronal
interferences in political life, which offers advices about who this phenomenon in this
chronological context has became so common and popular.
