This article aims to analyze the long and non-linear path of Women’s and Gender History, using the author’s subjective and generational point of view. Furthermore, it intends to highlight the dis/continuities between Women’s History and Gender History, but also between these fields of research and Lgbtqi History. The common thread of this path has been Anna Rossi-Doria’s teaching and its implications for the author’s research experience. In particular, in its last part, the article focuses more specifically on Rossi-Doria’s works on women’s subjectivity and citizenship, two categories which have mostly affected the author’s historical research on trans people and the trans movement’s demand for legal recognition in contemporary Italy.
