The first International Socialist Women’s Conference took place in 1907 in Stuttgart, Germany. At that meeting, Clara Zetkin led the Women’s International Secretariat, which was part of the international socialist movement. In 1955, representing the non-communist socialist movement, the organization became the International Council of Social Democratic Women (ICSDW), and in 1978, Socialist International Women (SIW). Today, Socialist International Women works to end gender discrimination, promote peace, and increase women’s political participation. SIW is a non-governmental organization with consultative status at the UN. In 2008, SIW hosted its XIX Congress in Athens, Greece, with the theme “Women’s Rights are Human Rights.” Materials from SIW in this database include conference proceedings as well as statements made by the organization and its predecessors since 1907.
