Abstract / Summary
Title: The Speech of Mrs. Alexandrina Gr. Cantacuzino at the General Meeting of the National Council of Romanian Women, Bucharest, December 13, 1936. Description: Speech of Alexandrina Cantacuzino, leader of the National Council of Romanian Women, at the 1936 general meeting of the organization. At that time, the aim of the suffragist campaign was to obtain full political rights for women, after the achievement of local political rights for certain categories of women in 1929. But in this speech, Cantacuzino declared that she was informed “by an important politician” that women had no chances to obtain full political rights. They could be offered only the right to vote for the Parliament. The speech offers also details, among others, about Cantacuzino’s participation to the 1936 Dubrovnik Congress of the International Council of Women (ICW) and mentions her trip, as a member of ICW’s executive board, to Calcutta where she attended the Indian National Council of Women’s conference of the same year.
