Abstract / Summary
Title: Speech Held at Constanța on May 14 This Year. Description: Alexandrina Cantacuzino’s speech at a Romanian Women’s Association meeting held on May 14 [?1933] in which the leader of the organization exposed her ideas on a “new politics” of women that would be more efficient than other feminist strategies in the achievement of women’s emancipation. This “new politics” of women, characterized by a refusal to enter political parties’ structures, political non-partisanship, female solidarity and sacrifice for the public service, was to emerge in opposition to men’s politics, harshly criticized for going against the public interest and cultivating a destructive competition. The argumentation for women’s rights was based on ideas of women’s superior morality, altruism and dedication to the public good, strengthened by a rhetoric that promoted the image of a Romanian society caught in deep moral, economic, political and institutional crises.
