Abstract / Summary
TITLE: November 28, 1905. DESCRIPTION: Ženský list [Women's Paper] was a women's journal linked to Českoslovanská sociálně demokratická strana dělnická [the Czechoslavonic Social Democratic Workers’ Party]. Since 1901 it was edited by Karla Máchová (1853-1920) – the main representative of the Czech-speaking social democratic women's movement in Bohemia. The text describes the events of November 28, 1905 in Prague – the general strike and massive demonstrations for universal suffrage to the lower house of the Austrian (Cisleithanian) parliament (Reichsrat). The demonstrations were part of the actions organized in many cities of the monarchy by social democrats. The text is written from the working-class perspective. It describes November 28 as the “triumphant day of the disinherited proletariat asking its civil rights.” The author, most likely the editor of the journal, Karla Máchová, stresses that the proletariat is made up of both men and women and points to the fact, that large number of women were part of the procession, manifesting for universal suffrage in terms of suffrage for both men and women. She stresses that the right to vote will be universal only when it includes both men and women.
