Abstract / Summary
During the years when the main transnational women's organizations were being established, women's activism generated a steady stream of "independent" congresses--conferences that that met across lands and languages and brought women together for a variety of purposes, not primarily to promote the founding of ongoing organizations. The vibrant and creative women's transnational culture that gave rise to powerful women's international associations was wider and more diverse than the organizations that survived, and included many little known, often short-lived transnational groups. This essay explores those "independent" congresses and the transnational culture that generated them.
