Abstract / Summary
TITLE: Annual Report of Splošno žensko društvo, 1913. DESCRIPTION: The document is the annual report of Splošnoslovenskoženskodruštvo (General Slovene Women’s Society), the most important association of Slovene-speaking women in the Austrian half of the Habsburg Empire, for the year 1913. The report informs about the preparations of the exhibition “Jugoslavenskažena” (The Yugoslav woman), in cooperation with women’s organizations from Zagreb-Ženskaudrugazapromicanjenarodnepučkeumjetnosti i obrta (Women’s Association for Promoting National Popular Art and Crafts) and Udrugaučiteljica (Female Teachers’ Association). Due to the economic crisis related to the Balkan wars, the exhibition was postponed to 1914. French, English, German and Slavic delegates travelling to the Seventh Congress of the International Women’s Suffrage Alliance (IWSA) in Budapest, held the meeting in Prague from 8th to the 12th of June 1913. The Czech women convoked the meeting of Slavic women in Prague, protesting the decisions of Vienna and Budapest committees not to accept language equality at the congress. Croatian and Slovene women expressed solidarity with the Czechs, and sent the telegram to the Výbor pro volebníprávožen (Committee for women’s suffrage). The report includes the text of the telegram, in which the authors expressed a wish for establishing an Austrian Slavic women’s federation (a federation of Slavic-speaking women’s organizations within the Austrian half of the Habsburg Empire). The Slovene women expressed their regrets for being geographically distant from active Czech women, and for being obliged to be members of Vienna’s Bund Österreichischer Frauenvereine (Federation of Austrian Women’s Associations). The report documents the shifting alliances among women of different nationalities within the Empire, in this case under the influence of the Yugoslav and the Austro-Slavic political models, respectively. It also documents tensions between women activists from different nationalities in relation to the 1913 IWSA Congress in Budapest.
