Abstract / Summary
Title: Answer to Mrs. Pia Alimănișteanu. Description: Manuscript without date, probably from 1931, of a public letter written by Alexandrina Cantacuzino as response to the criticism brought to her by Pia Alimănișteanu. Pia Alimănișteanu was a feminist, member of the Association for the Civil and Political Emancipation of Romanian Women and of the National Liberal Party. In 1931, she publicly criticized Alexandrina Cantacuzino for exhibiting a politically neutral attitude while supporting political parties and for her commitment to “a feminism that did not bring any results”. In her answer to this criticism, Cantacuzino passionately defended her political stand in supporting women’s emancipation: “We have never ceased to wage our fight on these bases and, at the same time, to ask for civil and political rights for women. We do not want to get involved in the whirlpool of passions that transformed politics into a profitable profession instead of missionary work, and whose members [politicians] are predominantly against women’s rights.” Keywords: Alexandrina, Cantacuzino, feminism, nationalism, politics, suffrage, women’s emancipation
