Abstract / Summary
TITLE: A Lecture on Women's Emancipation in Russia in the Beginning of 1902. DESCRIPTION: The text by an anonymous author, a Slovene woman living in Russia, provides information about the progress of women’s emancipation in Russia in the beginning of 1902. After starting with the reference about the debate over the use of the titles Miss and Mrs. in Parisian circles, the author reports that in Russia women are more interested in practical problems, such as the fight against prostitution. They establish programs for young female workers consisting in lectures, courses, and organized entertainment under the supervision of patronesses. In Petrograd, courses and schools have been established for training of young women in watchmaking, handicrafts, pharmacy, and agriculture. The document shows the circulation of information about organized women’s movements and the efforts for women’s emancipation beyond the Empire. The personal letters and reports from women from the same ethnic group living in foreign countries often served as the first sources of information for women activists eager to gain knowledge about the women’s movements across the world. Women’s organizations also relied on the exchange of journals and direct correspondence with fellow activists. The document is kept incomes from the archives of Splošnoslovenskoženskodruštvo(General Slovene Women’s Society), the most important association of Slovene-speaking women in the Austrian part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. As a major independent Slavic country, the Russian Empire was a culturally and politically important reference point for national elites of Slavic peoples within the Habsburg Empire.
