Women Activists Between War and Peace employs a transnational approach in exploring women's activism across the European continent in the years that followed the First World War. It brings together leading scholars in the field from the UK, the USA, Canada and Bulgaria to discuss aspects of women's activism in and individual female activists from Germany, Hungary, the UK, Finland, Bulgaria, Russia, Austria and Slovenia.
Following an introduction that helpfully outlines key concepts, such as democracy, suffrage, cultural demobilisation/remobilisation, militarism, pacifism and transnationalism, the book proceeds to examine the nature of women's activism through the prism of six key topics:
* Suffrage and nationalism
* Revolution and socialism
* Peace and human rights
* Journalism and print media
* Science, medicine and the technology of warfare
* The commemoration of the war dead
A timeline and illustrations are also included in the book, along with a useful bibliography. This is a vitally important text for all students of women's history, twentieth-century European history and the legacy of the First World War.
