Abstract / Summary
Title: Speech Held by Mrs. Alexandrina Cantacuzino at the GFR Congress at Cluj on January 21, 1933. Description: Alexandrina Cantacuzino’s speech at a Romanian Women’s Association Congress at Cluj on January 21, 1933 in which corporatist ideas started to be used in supporting women’s higher participation in the public life. Canatcuzino’s orientation towards the doctrine of corporatism came in line with her constant preoccupation with the idea of attainment of social solidarity through the spiritual reformation and education of individuals in the spirit of sacrifice and communitarian values. In Cantacuzino’s particular reading of the corporatist ideology, the corporatist organization of the state had the advantage of offering the intelligentsia more possibilities to become involved in the political decision-making through a higher representation in the Senate. The corporate state could also give educated strata (of women) the opportunity to become more involved with better and more efficiently organized social and educational activities for the masses. This was considered important not only for the advance of women’s rights but also for the achievement of a better society.
