An indispensable reference and research resource, International Woman Suffrage (originally Ius Suffragii ) was the monthly periodical of the early twentieth century world-wide women's movement. Its function was to inform women working for equal ...
citizenship in one part of the world about the oppression and/or struggle against that oppression and the achievements of women elsewhere. The periodical was read by all the leading figures of the suffrage movement in more than thirty countries who would then disseminate the most relevant information in their own national and regional journals. It contains source material found nowhere else that is invaluable for researchers in women's history and feminism. International Woman Suffrage contains articles by women from the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bohemia, British India, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Rumania, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA. International Women's Suffrage 1913-1920 covered controversial, and in many cases still topical, subjects such as the age of consent for girls, alcohol control, care of children in need, education of girls, new employment openings for women, divorce law reform, health insurance for mothers, maternity benefits, minimum wages, prostitution, women medical workers, women police, women politicians, as well as women's right to vote and women's war experience. Not even World War One could close the paper down - women's news from otherwise incommunicado belligerent nations was sent via neutral countries to the editor who also managed to bring out special, illustrated, editions on women and the Russian Revolution of 1917 and women and the German Revolution of 1919. This four-volume collection reprints eight years of the journal with a thorough introduction by the editor to set the material in its social and historical context.
