Current Research Project: 
Transnational interrelations between German, Jewish and Polish women’s movements in the Eastern provinces of Prussia between 1880-1930

While women’s movements at the end of the 19th century differed considerably in their political and social backgrounds, they had strikingly similar demands regarding women’s right to vote, education, employment, maternity rights, and broader moral questions. Thus, this project examines the question whether individual actors and organized groups among these women’s movements in the Eastern provinces of Prussia interacted with each other.
