Veiled Egyptian women publicly protested British occupation in 1919, and four years later Hoda Sha'arawi organized the Egyptian Feminist Union (EFU) and affiliated with the International Woman Suffrage Alliance (IWSA). The women of the Union focused on women's political rights as well as education, anti-prostitution, and opposition to marriage/divorce laws discriminating against women. In 1938, the EFU held the First Congress of Arab Women in Cairo, focusing on issues related to Palestine. The Second Congress in 1944 created the Pan-Arab Women's League. In 1966, the EFU changed its name to the Hoda Sha'arawi Association. Women and Social Movements International includes numerous documents related to the EFU's international activities, primarily articles from their monthly French-language journal, L'Egyptienne, reporting on the EFU's participation in international women's conferences in the 1920's and 30s.
