Abstract / Summary
Title: The Congress of the Assoc[iation] f[or] the C[ivil] and P[olitical] E[mancipation] of R[omanian] W[omen]. Extracts from the Report of May 21st , 1932 [written] on the Occasion of the Meeting of the Delegates of the Local Branches of the Assoc[iation] f[or] the C[ivil] and P[olitical] E[mancipation] of R[omanian] W[omen] for the Modification of Statutes. Description: Manuscript of extracts of a report on the discussions held at a meeting in Iași on the modification of the statutes of the Association for the Civil and Political Emancipation of Romanian Women (AECPFR) on May 21st, 1932. The document gives an indication on the degree to which the conflict over women’s enrollment in political parties divided not only the Romanian women’s movement but also the members of feminist organizations such as AECPFR. In the 1930s, when women obtained the right to vote and be elected in municipal councils, the composition and organization of AECPFR was threatened more than ever by intra-organizational conflicts on the issue of women’s involvement with politics. These conflicts were fueled by the contradiction between the politically non-partisan position embraced by Elena Meissner and other important members of AECPFR and the decision of other members of AECPFR to join political parties. The decision of the women belonging to the latter group resulted sometimes in their withdrawal from the organization or in the estrangement of members who did not share their political beliefs. Moreover, because of these conflicts, other women became much more reluctant to become involved with an association undertaking an open campaign for women’s political rights and which was now, more than before, under the critical and often ironic public scrutiny for aiming to involve women in politics.
